Innovation for everyone

Innovation for everyone

High-growth countries of Brazil, Russia, China and India represent more than 30% of the combined sales of the Renault-Nissan Alliance – up from 1% when Renault and Nissan partnered in 1999.

The key to success in these challenging markets? Modern, robust cars that are truly affordable to first-time buyers – manufactured in clever, “cost-breakthrough” ways that significantly reduce the use of scarce natural resources.

Renault ZOE electrifies the Flins production plant

Renault ZOE electrifies the Flins production plant

Production of ZOE, the flagship of Renault’s electric vehicle range, started at the end of 2012 on the same production lines as New Clio and Clio Collection. The industrial development of ZOE was a tough challenge for Flins, but the plant succeeded in launching the series production of two very different and strategically important vehicles for the company, ZOE and New Clio, at the same site and in the same year. The people at Renault showed outstanding ingenuity to minimize changes to production resources and cope with the specific demands of electric ZOE in the manufacturing process in a totally fluid manner. The production processes of the ZOE and New Clio body shells are so similar that it takes a carefully trained eye to spot the differences between the two.

Copenhagen aims for a carbon neutral future

Copenhagen aims for a carbon neutral future

It’s a bold goal but if any city can do it, it’s got to be Copenhagen. Denmark’s capital is aiming to be the first carbon neutral city in the world by 2025… but then, as the country also aims to generate all its electricity from renewable sources – solar, wind and hydro – by 2050, it is clearly not a fanciful target.

Twizy Cargo: a Twizy for business users

 Twizy Cargo: a Twizy for business users
A new Twizy to go further…
 
Twizy Cargo is an eminently functional vehicle developed by Renault Tech in cooperation with Renault Sport Technologies. It has the huge advantage of a watertight boot with a capacity of 180l (75 kg), accessible via a rear door that opens to 90°. This conversion was made possible by adapting the cut-out of the rear end and doing away with the passenger seat. The front seat is still moveable, and the door features a locking system that works with the ignition key.
