Renault accelerates its transition to an all-electric future in Europe, but the automaker has a “Plan B” as well.
According to Automotive News Europe, Renault CEO Luca de Meo said at a media event that the French brand will become 100% electric in Europe in 2030.
Previously it was expected that Renault would be at 90%, while the remaining 10% would consist of other types of vehicles.
“Renault will be 100 percent electric in 2030 in Europe.”
In case there are issues,preventing full electrification (like the lack of charging infrastructure or high electricity prices), the company will continue to sell cars with an internal combustion engine.
“We have a Plan B.”
Renault Group’s Dacia brand will be gradually electrified as well, but “at the last possible moment,” which probably means after 2030. The European Union would like to halt sales of new internal combustion engine cars by 2035.
