Renault will launch a new electric model an announced price under 20,000 euros.
Renault moves to the offensive on the market electricity. The diamond brand will stop production of the Zoe, its very first electric vehicle, and that of the current Twingo, third generation. To replace them, the French manufacturer has chosen to electrify two revenants, two flagship models of the brand in the 70s and 80s, the R5 and the 4L, expected respectively on the roads in 2024 and 2025. But that's not all! Renault also intends to make the electric car more accessible by launching a new city car which will be sold at retail locations. less than 20,000 euros.
If the price of the R5 should start at around 25,000 euros, Renault aims to increase the price to around 25,000 euros. further lower costs with this new city car, positioned as a direct competitor to the Citroën ë-C3, Chinese brands and the future small Tesla, probably assembled from the same side. from Berlin. This future small model will be manufactured in Europe and certainly eligible for the ecological bonus. He could thus return to 15,000 euros once the premium has been deducted according to the current scale, and even at a higher rate. 13,000 euros for the lowest-income households.
Renault also indicates that its new car has Green energy will also be available at less than 100 euros per month
under the framework of social leasing in force since November. What hope for the manufacturer to reach a new clientele with its electric models so far? out of budget for too many French people.
Defined by the manufacturer as 'a vehicle designed for urban use', this new Renault promises 'consumption at best level with only 10 kWh/100 km, CO₂ emissions reduced by 75% compared to the previous year. the average of thermal vehicles sold in Europe in 2023 over the entire life cycle, zero CO₂ emissions at the exhaust and less consumption of raw materials thanks to its compact size.''
And if its face tells you anything, it's probably because the brand has played a role in its design. the card of affiliation with the first Twingo, star of the 90s and still seen as a symbol of the attractive new car. Renault also gave him the provisional name of Twingo Legend, which will therefore be, after Mégane, Sénic, 4L and R5, the fifth of seven electrified models designed by its subsidiary Ampè from here to 2031. Its release is scheduled for the year 2025.
