Electric Renault will cost less than 20,000 eurosSeptember 10, 2020
Gradually, Renault has plans for the future, which were developed under the leadership of the new CEO Luca de Meo. For the first time, the manager announces something about the upcoming new product.
In an interview with the French edition, Luca De Meo talks in more detail about the new electric vehicles that the company produces. He is already talking about a project with “electric vehicles with a starting price of less than 20,000 euros.” Renault is already making a good attempt with the electric Twingo, but with a base price of € 20,590 (RUR 1.84 million), this electric citycar is still more expensive than the CEO promises.
However, there is another announced car that lives up to these promises. Dacia, part of the Renault Group, will unveil a production version of the Spring Electric Concept next year. The automaker previously promised that it would be the cheapest electric car in Europe.
Meanwhile, De Meo speaks of vehicles in the plural. This could mean that parent brand Renault will also introduce the equivalent of an electric Dacia. Technically, this has already happened because the Dacia Spring is based on the all-electric Renault City K-ZE available in China. It is possible that this car will receive a European passport.
The new head of Groupe Renault also says cheaper electric models will be built in France. So it is highly likely that Renault will not produce the production version of the Dacia Spring – like the K-Ze – in China, but will simply move production to the European continent.
