Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi launches Alliance Intelligent Cloud – first in Renault Clio, Nissan Leaf

The Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance has announced the production release of the Alliance Intelligent Cloud, a connectivity platform which will offer seamless internet access providing remote diagnostics, continuous software deployment, firmware updates and access to infotainment services, with cloud computing, artificial intelligence and IoT (Internet of Things) technologies by Microsoft Azure.

The first models to be equipped with the tech are the forthcoming Renault Clio and selected versions of the Nissan Leaf sold in Japan and Europe. The Alliance Intelligent Cloud is a highly scalable platform, the group says, which will also consolidate multiple legacy connected vehicle solutions with current and future connected car services that will support mobility services.

Features of the Intelligent Cloud service include remote services, proactive monitoring, connected navigation, connected assistance, over-the-air software updates as well as other customer-tailored services, the group said.

The Alliance Intelligent Cloud has scope to connect cars of brands within the alliance with the future infrastructure of smart cities as the group develops both on its own and with potential future partners, the group of companies said. Any third-party seeking to connect with all legacy and future alliance models will have a single point of contact with this initiative, it said.

Open roads and closed circuits hold great allure for Mick Chan. Driving heaven to him is exercising a playful chassis on twisty paths; prizes ergonomics and involvement over gadgetry. Spent three years at a motoring newspaper and short stint with a magazine prior to joining this website.



  • Meh. Copies the infortainment system sharing like MBUX/GKUI used by Mercedes Benz, Geely, and Proton.

  • After demise of Carlos Ghosn financial misconducts, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance obviously rebounded much stronger.

    Powered by Microsoft instead of Google. Expect the car will stall with frequent BSODs and frequent failure to update which will hard crash the car system.

    French and Japanese and China are clever. They work together to come out with intelligent systems. Cars like the Proton X70, all technology comes from China Geely. Cause China is hardworking and they produce good tech
