Renault, Nissan and Waymo explore robot car services in France and Japan
Groupe Renault, Nissan Motor Co., and Alphabet’s autonomous driving unit Waymo have entered into an exclusive agreement for an initial period to explore all aspects of driverless mobility services for passengers and deliveries in France and Japan.  

The agreement is designed to bring together the strengths of each party and expand expertise by assessing market opportunities, working together to research commercial, legal and regulatory issues related to driverless transportation-as-a-service offerings in France and Japan.  The Alliance of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, with a global footprint and portfolio covering every segment of passenger and light commercial vehicles, is regarded as uniquely suited to join this business exploration with Waymo, who claims to be the world’s most experienced self-driving company with more than 10 million miles on public roads.

The agreement marks a first step to developing long-term driverless mobility services operations. This analysis will first take place in France and Japan, home to Groupe Renault and Nissan headquarters, respectively, and may expand to other markets, excluding China, in the future.

To further the exploration process, Groupe Renault and Nissan will create joint venture Alliance-focused companies in France and Japan dedicated to driverless mobility services.
