The production version of the Renault 5 EV is to be launched in the European market as early as 2024. This is according to a recent announcement from Renault.
At present, there have been some reports in the media about this electric car, which could come into being for the markets of continental Europe. However, now details are better known and we can see that the small battery-powered vehicle will be built at Renault’s larger company premises in Douai in France.
Renault will be fully committed to the revolution of mobility.
According to Renault, electric cars are not aimed at the luxury segment. The manufacturer intends to bring affordable electric vehicles to the market and wants to make them as attractive as possible in terms of both cost and range. To this end, they rely on the most innovative technologies.
The small electric car battery will have NMC cells produced by Envision AESC in Douai, not far from the Renault plant.
