The Nissan LEAF, the first mainstream, mass-marketed electric vehicle, remains the world’s best-selling EV since its launch in December 2010. In addition to the LEAF, Nissan also sells the e-NV200, a light commercial vehicle sold mainly in Europe and Japan since 2014.
Renault has sold electric vehicles worldwide since 2011. It has the largest electric vehicle line-up with Renault ZOE, Kangoo Z.E., Fluence Z.E., the RSM SM3 Z.E. and the Twizy. Renault leads the European EV market and one out 4 EVs sold there is a Renault. The ZOE is the most sold EV in Europe. Fully electric vehicles will cover the primary segments of Groupe Renault's offering by 2022 and will represent 20% of the product range of the company.
Mitsubishi Motors has sold the i-MiEV worldwide since 2009 and introduced the Outlander PHEV in 2013. It has become the world’s best selling plug-in hybrid SUV.
Electric Vehicles sold
as of February 28th
As the pioneer and global leader in zero-emission electric vehicles, our objective remains to be the number one provider of mainstream mass-market and affordable EVs around the world.
In total, 12 new electric vehicles will be launched by the end of 2022. We will achieve economies of scale by utilizing common electric vehicle platforms and shared components.
NEW ELECTRIC VEHICLES
12 new models
of volume on shared platforms
Of the 12 new electric vehicles, 70 percent will be based on these common platforms and 100 percent of e-components will be shared. We will also introduce common e-powertrain families that will contribute to reducing EV powertrain costs by 20 percent over the course of the plan. The cost of batteries will also be reduced by 30 percent.
This combination of increased battery efficiency and new powertrains will extend the range of our EVs. By 2022, we expect the range of these vehicles to exceed 600 kilometres, calculated under NEDC homologation methodology. More efficient batteries will contribute to faster charging times, removing another source of range anxiety. We expect to provide a range of 230 kilometres per 15-minute charge by 2022, up from 90 kilometres today – also under NEDC homologation methodology.
Alongside our pure EV efforts, we will adopt Mitsubishi’s plug-in hybrid technology for new models in the C/D segment for Renault and Nissan.
