Automotive: Renault announces a “historic acceleration” on the electric



No, despite sales that have been slipping for a few months, Renault is not behind Volkswagen or its European rivals to negotiate the accelerated shift towards the electric car. This is the message that the manufacturer wanted to convey on Wednesday, by presenting “a historic acceleration” of its strategy. It will result, among other things, in 90% fully electric vehicles for the Renault brand in 2030, and the rebirth in battery version of a legendary model, the 4L.

A first series of announcements had been made on Monday, on the occasion of President Macron’s visit to the Douai factory. The manufacturer had detailed its strategy to ensure its battery supply with the construction on site by the Chinese Envision of a “Gigafactory”, which will be operational from 2024, and in the longer term, an investment in the French start-up Verkor. The presentation of this Wednesday, quite technical on the technical level, aimed to complete the picture.
