“Ten new electric models will be conceived and up to one million electric vehicles will be manufactured by 2030, from cost-efficient urban vehicles to higher-end sports cars,” Renault CEO Luca de Meo stated.

With these upcoming models, the brand targets the greenest mix in the European market in 2025, with around 65% of electric and electrified cars in the sales mix and up to 90% BEVs vehicles mix in 2030.

Renault’s electric transition will be supported by two platforms - 

  • CMF-EV from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance for the C and D segment vehicles
  • CMF-BEV for smaller and more affordable vehicles like the Renault 5

As per the automaker, the CMF-EV offers enhanced driving pleasure with unparalleled performances thanks to its low centre of gravity and ideal weight distribution. It offers a range of up to 580 km on the WLTP testing cycle. On the contrary, the CMF-BEV platform is made for affordable BEVs. This brand-new architecture will reduce the vehicle cost by 33% and will offer up to 400 km in WLTP, Renault claims.
