Renault Confirms Working On A New Affordable EV

Corporate press releases don't normally hold in any valuable info, but every once in a while, automakers reveal something important in them.

After we've caught a glimpse of what we should expect from Mercedes-Benz next year, in a road map carefully tucked away in one of Daimler's releases, it was a Renault press release that caught our eye.

Dropped almost a week ago, the short text refers to Gilles Normand taking the reins at the brand's Electric Vehicle unit from January 1, 2017. But that's not the major story, as the automaker also mentions "working on a new affordable EV model".

Now, we're not exactly sure what that means, other than the obvious, but what we could be looking at here is a $7,000 to $8,000 electric car aimed at the Chinese market, as chief Carlos Ghosn said last month. If this is the case, then the zero-emissions vehicle is part of the Renault-Nissan Alliance's EV program aimed at the world's largest automotive market , which the Nissan Leaf EV, where it's sold as the Venucia e30, hasn't managed to crack.
