PARIS, Jan 13 — French carmaker Renault wants electric vehicles to represent all its sales in Europe by 2030, upping a previous commitment of 90 per cent, chief executive Luca de Meo said today.

“We have decided to prepare the conditions to make Renault a 100 per cent electric brand by 2030,” he said.

“We imagine a Renault brand that shows off with the newcomers on this market, on European soil.”

Renault will launch its Megane electric car and a modern version of its small Renault 5 this year as manufacturers pivot towards climate-friendly energy sources and away from polluting fossil fuels. — AFP
