The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance has announced a technology partnership with Google.

The agreement will see Google’s Android operating system embedded in vehicles manufactured and sold by these three automotive brands. The aim is to provide intelligent infotainment and customer focused-applications across multiple models and brands, from 2021.

Under the technology partnership, vehicles sold by the Alliance members in many markets will feature Android, as well as Google Maps navigation systems.

By incorporating these features in Alliance vehicles, motorists and their passengers will have access to a wide range of automotive apps on the Google Play Store and have the ability to answer calls and texts, control media, find information, and manage vehicle functions with voice activation, using the built in Google Assistant.

The Alliance, whose member companies last year sold 10.6 million vehicles in 200 markets around the world, will integrate Google applications and services into infotainment and cloud-based systems designed to enhance the experience for customers of Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors brands.

While a range of Alliance vehicles will share the Android platform, each brand will have flexibility to create a unique customer interface and specific features on top of the common Android platform.

The infotainment partnership forms part of Alliance moves to equip more vehicles with connectivity and cloud-based services as part of its Alliance 2022 mid-term plan that focuses on new automotive technologies.
