Renault adds to electric car range with sportier model-Megane eVision
15th October 2020
"The company already makes a small electric car known as Zoe."
French carmaker Renault unveiled on Thursday a new electric car concept with a larger, sportier design, as it bets on medium-size family vehicles to try to turn itself around.
Under new Chief ExecutiveLuca de Meo, the loss-making company aims to narrow its focus on its most profitable models and edge up prices, as well as make a big push on electric vehicles.
The company’s latest show car dubbed the “Megane eVision”, incorporates SUV-style large wheels, but with a more compact design. Renault said it would be a pillar of the “compact” car category, which it wants to expand on and is more profitable than smaller cars.
“A whole new generation of innovation-packed electric vehicles is to come,” De Meo said in a statement, ahead of a presentation of the model.
Renault was already struggling with faltering sales before the COVID-19 pandemic and is simultaneously trying to reboot a strained relationship with Japanese partner Nissan.
The new electric car would be the first built on the CMF-EV platform or vehicle architecture, developed jointly by Renault, Nissan, and Mitsubishi.
The definitive model for production will be unveiled in 2021, Renault added. The company already makes a small electric car known as Zoe.
Sources had previously told that De Meo - who arrived in July and is due to present his strategy in January - was keen to build on Renault’s popular Megane range.
