The Renault group has made a new five-year plan with 14 new electrified car models and where Alpine will have a more prominent role within the group and develop a bill together with Lotus.
The next five years The Renault Group will launch 14 new main models. Seven of them will be pure electric cars and the other half hybrids.
If we divide the 14 cars into size classes, half will belong to the C / D segment, ie medium-sized and large family cars corresponding to Renault Megane and Talisman.
The new strategy “Renaulution” will also change what the Renault brand stands for. They want to be a car brand that stands for technology, service and clean energy. They will fulfill the latter by using electricity for passenger cars and hydrogen for some transport vehicles.
In 2022, Renault will arrive to launch a new infotainment system called “My Link” with Google Built-in. Renault says it will be the first carmaker to offer Google services for mass-produced cars.
Renault sees itself not only as a car manufacturer but also as a supplier of technology to others, with everything from electronics to big data.
As an example of his “Renaulution” has Renault 5 Prototype developed. It is a completely electric small car intended for large cities. The car is clearly inspired by the Renault 5 which was sold in the 80’s.
The Renault Group’s subsidiaries are also being recast. Alpine will have overall responsibility for the sports car and racing business, which today includes Alpine Cars, Renault Sport Cars (RSC) and Renault Sport Racing (RSR), which includes the Formula 1 team.
During the coming five-year period, Alpine will develop a fully electric model program with technology taken from Formula 1.
The Renault group mentions three possible Alpine cars in their press release:
– Completely electric hot hatch in the B-segment based on the Alliance’s CMF-B electric car platform
– Completely electric crossover in the C-segment based on the Alliance’s CMF electric car platform
– Fully electric sequel to the sports car A110 which is being developed together with Lotus
At the other end of the price scale there are Dacia and Lada who together form a business area for affordable cars that pick technology from Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi.
For the next five years, Dacia will only invest in the CMF-B platform, which opens up for both electric cars and hybrids. The platform will be used for eleven different bodies. Today, Dacia uses four platforms for 18 different bodies.
In 2021 is coming new versions of Sandero and Spring. And until 2025, three more models will be launched. One of these will be an SUV that is now hinted at in the form of the concept car Bigster Concept which is 4.6 meters long.
Mobilize is a new brand and business area within the Renault Group, which will not only include cars but also other means of transporting people and goods.
Mobilize goes further than cars. They will offer new ways of transporting people and goods, either with or without a car. They also want to make it cheaper to have access to a car.
To show its ambition, the prototype EZ-1 has been developed. The EZ-1 looks like a modernized Renault Twizy. The idea is that you only have to pay for the time you use your EZ-1.
Instead of conventional charging The EZ-1 offers an opportunity to change the battery to reach full range faster.
I buy the new Renalt 5 directly. Shitty!
