New Electric Motor Drives PHEV Project

The target for the Megane-size C-segment car likely include the Li-ion battery. its four EVs, Renault the battery to customers.

ROUEN, Renault is developing a plug-in vehicle for the C-segment to attract who want more range the 150 km (93 miles) offered by Renault’s vehicles.

Most competitors developed both an EV and a plug-in, Jean-Pierre Fouquet, head of the project, at a symposium sponsored by the Moveo industry cluster, so is planning to join the crowd.

The project still is at the research says Fouquet, and the “Zero on Demand” project is not yet accepted for although he expects a decision this year.

Meanwhile, he Renault has filed 30 patents on its for a new electric motor for the PHEV with a 3-speed transmission. for a government subsidy, he says, could sell the car for about ($27,000), the same as a Toyota Hybrid.

Renault and PSA Peugeot have been working with suppliers on a project by France to develop cars emit carbon dioxide at a of 50 g/km.

A slide prepared for the symposium by shows how a Peugeot 208 could 50 g/km with PSA ’s Air approach, while a Renault with a plug-in hybrid could reach 30 g/km.

The automotive press has reported Renault will show a PHEV concept at the Geneva show in March.

The target for the Megane-size C-segment car in development will include the lithium-ion says Fouquet.

With its EVs, Renault is leasing the to customers, but most competitors are the price of the battery in their and PHEVs, so Renault is considering the same.

“Today the two scenarios are being he says. “But we are going to at price levels where kind of battery would a very low rental fee. The of competitors’ hybrids, including hybrids, propose to sell the

“Offering a selling price for a in a segment where the competition has an HEV is a move for Renault, in terms of and for Renault’s goal of ‘mobility to everyone.’”

Before the car would to market, he says, battery must drop significantly, and that will be the moment switches from leasing to selling them, “including for the vehicles.”

Fouquet says the 400V battery in the PHEV about the size of the 22 kWh battery in the electric Zoe give customers a driving of 19-25 miles (30-40 km) and a top of 75 mph (120 km/h) on battery

He says the chemistry would be to that of the Li-ion batteries in the tuned to favor power energy.

The gasoline engine let owners drive anywhere are gas stations, and the car would be rated on NEDC driving cycle at than 50 g/km of CO2, or 111 mpg L/100 km). The car would five passengers, like the Megane in the C-segment.

Today, says Renault, the hybrids costing about in Europe are the Yaris and Honda both competing in the B-segment, and one a plug-in.

Renault says its is a vehicle for which the total of ownership is less than of a diesel in the same segment an automatic transmission. Renault its cheapest Megane diesel a dual-clutch transmission for €26,500

Fouquet does not say how much of a incentive Renault would for its PHEV should it arrive on the But today, electric vehicles get a ($8,569) discount and PHEVs get ($5,442).
