3 October 2007

Renault will have affordable electric cars in production within four years, according to company boss Carlos Ghosn.In an interview with Autocar editor Chas Hallett and editor-in-chief Steve Cropley, Renault CEO Ghosn admitted that the company is already testing battery cars with large fleet operators and admitted that they are likely to be the first customers for its fully electric models. "Until we have urban driving with zero emissions nothing (climate change) wil be solved," he said.According to Ghosn, however, Renault is already one of the most efficient car-makers for CO2 emissions and "we don't want to lose that," he stated.

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017

  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017

  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
