The Renault 5 Electric Prototype has been revealed, a car which symbolises the brand’s new acceleration towards electrification. Renault, through its Alpine brand, will also develop a next-generation EV sports car with Lotus.

Renault says that by 2025 it will launch 14 core vehicles: “Seven full-electric, seven in the C and D segment – all new models will be available with an electric or hybrid version.”

The brand has revealed its strategy for the next five years and beyond, as part of Groupe Renault’s ‘Renaulution’ programme. The plan will see Renault becoming a tech, service and clean energy brand. 

Renault says it will “offer the greenest mix of vehicles in Europe by 2025”. The company also claims that it will “recondition more than a 100,000 used cars per year, repurpose Diesel LCV and convert them into biogas and pure EV.”

Renault also aims to be a Clean Energy brand, with new families of products based on two dedicated electric platforms, CMF-EV and CMF-B EV. The brand will also offer market-ready, end-to-end hydrogen solutions for LCVs. The target is to deliver the greenest mix in European market.

Alpine will combine Alpine cars, Renault Sport Cars and Renault Sport Racing, dedicated to developing exclusive and innovative sportscars. There will be a 100 per cent electric product plan to support brand expansion through leveraging the scale and capabilities of Groupe Renault and the Alliance with the CMF-B & CMF-EV platforms. It will also develop a next-generation EV sports car with Lotus.
