Partnership with Mitsubishi
The car may be produced on a common platform with Nissan and third alliance partner Mitsubishi Motors. According to Emmanuel Bouvier, commercial director of Renault’s electric car business. “We are working on developing the range of our lineup to cover all segments with electric cars,” said Bouvier. He added that the new vehicle could also be derived from an existing model.”It’s early to say we will compete with Tesla, but planning to cover a larger share of the market,” he said.
Renault is rolling out a new version of the Zoe with an extended range next year. And it is also working on a more affordable vehicle, Bouvier said. The K-ZE low-cost car it built for China, partly based on the Indian Kwid model, could eventually be used to build a European affordable all-electric vehicle, he said.
