Action 1. Electrify all new Renault passenger car models by 2025


An internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle emits three times more CO2 in its life cycle than an electric vehicle*. In Europe, member states must implement national energy and climate plans (NECP) guaranteeing their contribution to achieving the EU’s climate and energy goals. As part of this effort, they are phasing out the sale of ICE vehicles (by 2030 for the United Kingdom and by 2040 at the latest for France). Furthermore, the UN predicts that two-thirds of the world’s population will be urban by 2050, and cities are already increasingly restricting access for ICE cars.


Pool manufacturing across 3 platforms: CMF-B and CMF-EV (for electric vehicles), CMF-CD.

Create an “Electro pole” in northern France which will be the Group’s largest electric vehicle production capacity in the world.

Launch 7 electric models under the Renault brand, including two C-segments.

Accelerate electrification by shortening the time to develop a new vehicle by 25%.



share of electrified vehicles in passenger car sales in Europe by 2030 – the Renault brand’s ambition.


65% less well-to-wheel CO2e emissions for a Renault Group vehicle sold in Europe in 2030.**
