Emmanuel Bouvier, Director of Marketing for Renault Asia Pacific, revealed details of the new pure electric vehicle yet to be named. Bouvier said: “Our goal is to fully cover the A, B, and C markets and introduce a variety of (electric) models.”
Bouvier also confirmed that the new model will be a passenger car, not a commercial vehicle like the Kangoo ZE. Renault has launched pure electric models such as Twizy, Zoe and Kangoo. Renault also introduced an electric car, similar to the already-discontinued wind ZE, which is part of a joint venture between Renault and Samsung. The City K-ZE is an affordable A-class electric vehicle for the Asian market, but is currently considering entering the European market.
The future of the body style and its priorities are still unclear, but the B-class crossovers sell almost faster than any other model. Renault has a scalable CMF-EV electric platform that can be used to manufacture electric models of different sizes and price points.
