Renault


Renault is the Group's historical, founding brand. Strongly present in Europe, the Renault brand is in a worldwide expansion. Renault has always been a vector for innovation, with the invention of the MPV (multi-purpose vehicle).

Renault aims to become the first full-line manufacturer to market zero-emission vehicles accessible to the greatest number, by 2011. Electric cars emit no CO2 in use. The Renault-Nissan Alliance is developing a complete range of 100% electric powertrains with power ratings of between 15kW (20hp) and 100kW (140hp).

The Technocentre engineering center 

This research and development center in Guyancourt (France) works to drive innovation and reduce design and development costs.

The Technocentre works closely with decentralized engineering centers, in different markets and in different production sites. It drives projects with global reach.

In addition, Renault can count on a network of four "satellite" design centers, fully integrated into the group’s global Design function processes: Seoul (South Korea), Bucharest (Romania), Sao Paulo (Brazil), Giheung (Korea) and Mumbai (India).















THE ELECTRIC VEHICLE, A GLOBAL STRATEGY

Renault aims to become the first full-line manufacturer to market zero-emission vehicles accessible to the greatest number, by 2011. Electric cars emit no CO2 in use. The Renault-Nissan Alliance is developing a complete range of 100% electric powertrains with power ratings of between 15kW (20hp) and 100kW (140hp).

Renault to launch electric vehicles in 2011

For Renault, the electric vehicle is the real long-term solution to today’s environmental and noise pollution issues. Technological innovations now make it possible to mass market an electric vehicle at reasonable cost. In addition, changes in vehicle use make electric cars ideal for the majority of trips, with 87% of Europeans currently driving less than 60 km a day.

 

Renault will bring its customers a complete range of electric vehicles by as early as 2011:

 

  • Especially designed for professionals Kangoo Express Z.E. will be available for the 1st semester of 2011. Pre-tax prices in Europe will start from €20,000 (before available tax incentives). Pre-tax prices in France will start from €15,000 with the €5,000 eco-subsidy deducted. Monthly subscriptions covering battery rental will be available from €72.
  • The family sedan Fluence Z.E. will be launched first in Israel (1st semester 2011) and then in other countries. Prices in Europe will start at a price of approximately €26,000 (depending on the local VAT rate). Prices in France will start from €21,300 with the €5,000 tax incentive deducted. Customers will also subscribe to a monthly lease starting from €79 (including VAT) to cover the battery.
  • In the beginning of the 2nd-half of 2011, a new type of urban vehicle will be launched. Twizy will be available in two versions (5kW or 15kW motor).
  • By mid 2012, a zero-emission in use city car (close to ZOE Preview) will be launched. Measuring less than four meters long and with five seats it will be ideal for commuting.
  • Beyond 2012, Renault will continue to extend its electric car range to cover all segments.

Renault will also bring customers access to innovative services making electric vehicle use easier and to advanced battery technology currently under development by the Renault-Nissan Alliance.


The new car for everyday use 

For Renault and its customers, electric cars have to be practical, attractive and reassuring:

 

  • Electric vehicles will retail at the same price as equivalent diesel models (without the battery, which is rented)
  • Running costs are roughly 20% lower than an equivalent combustion vehicle since electricity costs much less than petrol (around €1 per 100 km)
  • Maintenance costs are half those of an equivalent combustion vehicle because electric motors require less servicing
  • Electric motors are the equal of gasoline and diesel cars in terms of performance. Regarding acceleration, for example, an electric motor delivers all of its power as soon as it pulls away
  • Electric cars are easily recharged at home, at special terminals in parking lot areas and at “quickdrop” rapid exchange stations

 

Electric vehicles are in phase with current public issues. They are silent and, because they emit no CO2, NOx or particulate matter, they also respect the environment.
