In France, e-cars are extremely CO2 arm on the road thanks to nuclear power-e-cars are ideal for the Paris climate goals. The French are even planning a new Renault Renault Renault Renault.

For links on this page, Site receives. A commission from the dealer, Z.B. For marked. More information works want again, who doesn’t have yet? At the moment, the carmakers outperform themselves when it comes to announcing increasingly ambitious electromobility goals. A few days after VW presented the parameters of the e-timetable for the next few years, the Renault Group counters under the keyword "Eways" and announces ten new fully electric models in the next four years.

Renault almost only brings e-cars

The range ranges from affordable city flights to sporty vehicles, such as an alpine, since this sub-brand will only produce BEV cars from 2024. "I always forced emotional cars in my career because people pay money for it," smiles Renault boss Luca de Meo. Not only that. By 2030, 90 percent of sales are to be generated with pure electric vehicles. "We will lead the energy transition and make the electric vehicles really popular," announces Renault boss Luca de Meo.

In 2024, a model will be the fully electric new edition of the Renault R5, which will have a range of 400 kilometers. In addition, there is probably another BEV reminiscence to the glorious past, which is currently still running under the cryptic working title "4Ever", but will probably be the new edition of the Renault 4. The two cult powerers become part of a separate ecosystem. The heart of Renault electromobility will beat in the north of France in the "Renault Electricity".

Three factories are merged

The carmaker closes the three factories in Douai, Maubeuge and Ruitz into a powerful – production network and supplemented with a battery production facility. The fact that French President Emmanuel Macron has recently visited the Gigafactory, which is supposed to achieve a capacity of up to 24 gigawatt hours by 2030, shows how important this project is for the country. "We will halve the battery price in the next ten years," announces Renault Ceo Luca de Meo. As the first intermediate step, the kilowatt hour should cost around $ 80 by 2025.

In order to have the costs under control in the long term, the French also have the periphery of energy storage including power electronics. "We check the entire value chain, including the battery life cycle," announces de Meo. Without support, this project cannot succeed, of course, that comes from LG Chem and the new partners Envision AESC as well as Verkor. The aim is to double the energy density of the cells.

"Grande Nation" wants to be electrical – there is enough nuclear power

The intention is clear: the Grande Nation also wants to become independent of electromobility and, above all. From 2024, around 400 each year should.000 automobiles run off the assembly line. "We are working on pressing the costs of the BEVS under that of the combustion engines," says technology chief Gilles Le Borgne. Of course, an energy mix will help the French, which, unlike Germany, will continue to rely on low-CO2 nuclear power in the future. With that the Stromer are actually "clean" On the way as a petrol engine- and the loading costs for consumers also much lower than in Germany, where the energy transition with wind and solar power causes ever higher costs.

The compact electric motors come from Cleon. Renault plans a drive train that summarizes the electric machine, the reduction gear and the power electronics in one package that requires around 45 percent less installation space. In addition, there is a cost reduction of 30 percent for the total drive train and an 45 percent lower energy consumption, which enables an additional range of up to 20 kilometers.

In order to get this development on the way, the Renault brand wants to invest another ten billion euros in the next five years. This appears low compared to VWS billion dollar commitment, but the French have also invested in electromobility since 2009. In addition, they were able to collect over 300 terabytes of data via the energy storage. "This is the largest data record of an automobile manufacturer in Europe," said de Meo, knowing that experience also saves money in automotive engineering.

580 kilometers of range should be possible

With the platforms, the big pure pure continues, since the Allianz cars are on two architectures in the future: One is the CMF-EV platform for the C and D segment as well as for sporting performance models that enables up to 580 kilometers of range. The new Megane, which will be produced in Douai from 2022, uses this architecture. For folk electromobility in the B segment, the French have the CMF BEV platform in store, which allows a range of up to 400 kilometers and is still a third more cheaper than the architecture of the current Zoe. The fully electric Renault 5 mentioned at the beginning will use this substructure. Accordingly, the batteries will either be affordable or very powerful.

So it is not surprising that the zoe is not renewed at the end of its model cycle, but lives on in other ways. Due to the fact that Renault was a pioneer in electromobility with the Zoe, many of the approximately 250 come.000 leasing batteries back to Renault. The French carmaker wants to use these returns in order to be at the forefront of recycling. Finally, the batteries still have around two thirds of the original performance and can be used in different ways. On the one hand as a raw material donor and on the other hand in the mobility of buses and trains. "We are already in negotiations with some municipalities"; says Clotilde Delbos, head of the sub -brand Mobilize. The whole thing will take place in the refactory in flins, where with the support of Veolia and Solway, 80 percent of the recovered materials should be used in new batteries.

NMC batteries as a replacement for lithium-ion technology?

The topic of batteries naturally raises the question of the energy storage of the future. First, according to Gilles Le Borgne, Renault relies on NMC batteries (nickel, manganese and cobalt), which promise about 20 percent more reach at comparable costs. By 2030, up to one million electric vehicles of the Renault-Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance are to be equipped with this battery. At the same time, the time of the solids batteries at Renault, in which the French ride two tracks. As early as 2027, polymer-based solid batteries could be used, since their technology resembles the lithium-ion batteries. Later, around 2030, Renault also has a ceramic -based version on the radar. Then the solid batteries should also cost $ 80 per kilowatt hour. One problem could still brake the high -flying plans. “We are faster than the charging infrastructure grows. That is a topic ”; explains Luca de Meo.

  1. Solar and wind power do not bring any energy transition
    This article also means that "The energy transition with wind and solar power in Germany … ever higher costs". That is correct with the costs, but with the energy transition m.E. not. Large industrial energy consumers such as the metal industry with its steel production or the chemical and pharmaceutical industry have emission problems that are also included "green" Don’t let the current. It works z. B. To their thermal processes. In private households, too, thermal energy accounts for 70% of energy consumption along with CO2 emissions. Germany already has the most expensive electricity without sustainable the ecological balance. Solutions in the field of process heat are needed, no longer wind turbines.

  2. Wait ?!
    Only battery cars on offer ? Let’s wait and see how they react, if the customers fail to fail, you cannot load at home, it looks stupid with this drive. Advantage in F: They are not so stupid and switch off the A-power plants, there is only one nation that performs such nonsense…

  3. Please realistic range
    What helps the buyer a theoretical range of Z.B. 400km, if 330km left at the outside temperature at 25 ° C, 300km on hot summer days and only a good 200km on cold winter days? Since the electric car reacts sensitive to temperature differences, the minimum range reached under the extensive environmental conditions should always be given. And before the usual suspects come again with the argument that the consumption information on the combustion engineer does not correspond to reality. Right! But the fluctuations are far from so extreme and the basic range is usually significantly higher, so that a deviation from the specified consumption is annoying, but is not impairment of the use of the vehicle.
