The two platforms are the CMF-A and CMF-A+. The Kwid and the redi-GO are based on the CMF-A platform, whereas the CMF-A+ will underpin Nissan and Renault's future small and mid-size cars in India.
The Renault-Nissan Alliance also has the M0 platform which underpins the larger vehicles such as Duster, Terrano and Lodgy. The Renault Captur and Nissan Kicks crossover will be based on the same M0 platform.
The alliance had also tested the larger CMF-B platform in India. But it was way too expensive than the M0 architecture. Nissan-owned Datsun will continue to make use of the V minus platform. The upcoming Go Cross will be also based on this platform. The Go-Cross will be pitted against the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza in the Indian market.
Renault and Nissan are trying to expand their market reach with new products equipped with advanced technology. India being a price sensitive market, the Renault-Nissan Alliance is trying to cut cost by adopting low-cost platforms in the country.
