Existing factories around the world can be quickly turned over to produce the different model as per the Customer requirements demand .
Adaptability , synergy in costs
Common Module Family (CMF)
CMF has four segments :
CMF-A: Small, fuel-efficient vehicles particularly in high-growth markets
CMF-B: Mid-sized vehicles
CMF-C/D: Larger vehicles, including many SUVs and crossovers
CMF-EV: Electric vehicles
As mentioned in Alliance article, By 2020, when CMF is fully deployed in plants worldwide, 70% of all Alliance vehicles will fall within the CMF scope. The approach is expected to cut purchasing costs by as much as 30% and engineering costs by up to 40%. The savings enables product planners to add more in-demand content to vehicles.
Nissan’s first CMF vehicles on the road include the all-new Nissan Trail (multiple plants worldwide), Nissan Rogue (Tennessee, USA, and Renault Busan plant, South Korea), and Nissan Qashqai (Sunderland, UK), all built on CMF-C/D architecture. Renault’s first CMF-C/D vehicles are the Espace, the Kadjar, the new Megane, Scenic, and Talisman. In 2015, Renault began selling the Kwid in India, the first Alliance model built on CMF-A architecture. Nissan launched a Datsun model on CMF_A architecture in India 2016, the Datsun redi-GO.
