Role and Key Contribution to the Project

Renault will bring the perspective of a mass production car manufacturer in the consortium. It will contribute to the definition of stakeholde’ needs, i.e., the global playground for future urban frugal electric vehicles including users, future urban landscape and policies. More specifically, it will lead the development of an innovative Mission Suitability & Social Index to synthesise stakeholder needs in relation to mobility systems that integrate frugal EVs.
It will also contribute to the definition and optimisation of the frugal EV architecture towards a reference platform design, with a focus on the break down of the MSSI into design guidelines.
Renault will be involved in the optimisation and adaptation of components & systems to the novel platform. More in detail, it will provide requirements and recommendations related to the electric, electronics and software system integration of the e-drivetrain into the novel platform.
We are thrilled to be taking part in this project, which offers multiple horizons for clean, agile mobility that’s accessible to all.
