Renault-Nissan alliance has managed to produce 340,000 electric cars since 2010. This success was possible because of Nissan Leaf hatchback. More than 200,000 of such cars were rolled off the assembly line over the production period. And Japanese company has recently announced the plans for model redesigning.
Three electric cars are launched under the Renault brand: Renault Zoe hatchback, passenger-and-freight Renault Kangoo Z.E. and compact Renault Twizy Z.E.
Electric business sedan Fluence has lost its positions and is no longer in production. Zoe hatchback shows the highest selling results – over 50,000 models have been sold currently.
For the last year, the auto group has produced about 90,000 vehicles. This allowed Renault-Nissan to become the global leader of electric cars production. Representatives of the companies said they are going to add new models to electric vehicles collection pretty soon.
In the meantime, some European countries are considering the ban of the liquid fuel cars. That’s why the further progress of this industry is quite promising for the Renault-Nissan alliance.
