Reporters found a hint of this in the 2019 Renault Groupe financial report. This document also affects the electrification plans of the lineup of the brand.

Renault is conducting large-scale electrification of its model line. Renault Zoe has already been released, and the hybrid Captur, Megane and Clio have been announced recently. This list includes nine more models that are still classified. Also, according to the portal, in the coming years, fans of environmentally friendly cars should wait for the release of Dacia EV. This will happen in the year 2021 or in the year 2022. And while this is all the information that is known about the future new product. The lack of details, by the way, does not prevent experts from making assumptions. So, according to one version of Dacia EV, it may turn out to be a budget version of the future Twingo Z.E. According to another, the novelty may become the European version of the budget city electric car Renault City K-ZE, released last year in China.

 In favor of this assumption is the fact that not so long ago Renault announced the K-ZE variant, adapted for Europe. Such an electric car should become more advanced in terms of safety, as well as increase range.

The electric motor on the front axle of the existing electric car produces only 44 hp, and the battery capacity is 26.8 kW ∙ h. This is enough for a “run” of 271 kilometers. The cost of Renault K-ZE in the “heavenly” car market is 61,800 yuan. The option for Europe will obviously be more expensive due to improvements. In any case, the novelty can seriously compete with other low-cost city electric cars – Skoda Citigoe iV, SEAT Mii Electric and VW e-up! Will the Dacia car become a special version of the K-ZE for Europe, time will tell.
