Car Manufacturer Spotlight: Renault

Where we stand: May 2010

Through its Alliance with Nissan, French automaker Renault has been one of the leaders in the production of zero emission electric vehicles and has plans to mass market a range of electric cars from 2011 onwards .

In recent weeks it has released the final designs of its zero emission range which will consist of four battery electric vehicles. The company has also formed a number of partnerships with governments, utility companies and battery companies to begin the rollout of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in select areas.

Renault introduced a line of eco-friendly models in 2007 marked eco2 where a minimum of five per cent recyclable plastic is used in all models and at the end of the vehicles’ life they must be at least 95 per cent reusable. Each of these vehicles must also have carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of 140g/km or less or be biofuel compatible.

In 2008, Renault-Nissan signed a deal to mass produce electric cars for an initiative in Israel known as Project Better Place with the aim to mass market 10,000-20,000 vehicles a year in Israel. This partnership proved to be just the beginning of an ongoing relationship with Better Place to produce a network of all-electric vehicles and thousands of charging stations in other countries including Denmark.

The Renault-Nissan Alliance has also signed an agreement with EDF Energy in France to promote emission-free driving in the country, which will include a countrywide network of charging stations.

Renault-Nissan has also announced a tie-up with German car making giant Daimler that sees Daimler take a 3.1 per cent share in Renault-Nissan with the Alliance taking a 3.1 per cent stake in return. The carmakers have confirmed that they will work together to increase and develop the production of electric cars with the three firms expected to collaborate to produce electric versions of the Renault Twingo and the Smart ForTwo .
