At Renault we are convinced that in only two letters we have the solution in the automotive industry to fight climate change: EV (electric vehicle). Since a couple of years a great progress has been made in the EV domain and today's EV range perfectly responds to the need of most car users.

To answer to most frequently asked questions we have met with Thomas Orsini, head of business development for electric vehicles at Renault.
How can low-emission vehicles contribute to the French energy transition and the national low-carbon strategy? What are the benefits for the economy, and under what conditions?

Renault was among those representing the automotive industry to provide a valuable expertise on technological aspects. The work has helped quantify the likely impact on the French economy of the transition towards more energy-efficient light-duty vehicles, principally fuelled by electricity from renewable energies and by hydrogen.
