Renault, electric mobility for all, today and tomorrow

Renault will unveil its MORPHOZ electric concept car, illustrating its vision of tomorrow’s mobility. This vehicle offers a personalized adaptation to the needs, desires and uses of each person to expand all limits. It heralds a new family of Renault electric models that will arrive in the coming years.

Renault will present a 100% electrified stand during the press days with a full range of 8 vehicles, including the world premiere of the New Twingo Z.E.

As a pioneer in electric vehicles, Renault capitalizes on its expertise and continues to electrify its range through an innovative and exclusive hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrain offering named E-TECH on three of its flagship models: Clio, Captur and Mégane Estate. New Mégane Estate E-TECH Plug-in will be presented for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show.

To respond to the diversity of expectations, including those of professionals, Kangoo Z.E. Concept will make a major comeback. An urban and electric show car, it announces the renewal of the Kangoo range in 2020.

A Q&A session on Groupe Renault electrification will take place on March 3rd at 15:15 on the Renault stand (Hall 4) (limited places available by invitation only).

Dacia’s electric revolution with the most accessible 100% electric city car on the market

Dacia opens a new chapter and begins its electric revolution. True to its history as an “automotive gamechanger”, Dacia is entering the electric market and will present a 100% electric showcar. A revolution that capitalizes on Group Renault’s more than 10 years of expertise in electric mobility.

As the only carmaker to offer a bi-fuel petrol and LPG range, named ECO-G, across its entire passenger car range, Dacia will present its new Tce 100 ECO-G engine. To mark the brand’s 15th anniversary in Europe, Dacia will also present a limited Anniversary.

Meet us on March 3 at 8:00 a.m on the Dacia stand (Hall 4) for the world premiere of Dacia’s first full electric city car in the presence of the Dacia team.

Alpine: limited editions, a colorful nod to the past and a new interpretation

Alpine returns this year to the Geneva Motor Show (Hall 4) and continues to expand the A110 range with the presentation of two new limited series.

Alpine will also exhibit the Alpine A110 SportsX on its stand. This styling exercise, the result of a joint effort by Alpine’s design and engineering teams, draws its inspiration from the expanded and upgraded rally versions of the A110, in particular from the A110 that won the 1973 Monte Carlo Rally.

We invite you to the Alpine stand (Hall 4) on March 3 at 11:30 am for a press conference by Patrick Marinoff, Managing Director Alpine, and Antony Villain, Design Director.

 

I’m very curious to discover the main differences between the Renault Twingo ZE and Dacia’s electric car. Especially in terms of range and charging. I’m also curious to know if Dacia’s electric car will retain five seats as the Renault City K-ZE, or it’ll drop to four.

What about you? What expectations do you have for these two new affordable electric cars?

I think the Kangoo ZE may be as important as the two A-segment cars. Do we know if the Kangoo will have rapid charging? 40-52kWh battery and rapid charging would be a game changer.

I have no idea. Hopefully we’ll know in two weeks.

Next Kangoo ZE (XFK code name) may use current 33kWh and/or 43kWh battery pack, cells from CATL. 7kw and AC 22kW on-board charger are planned. DC Combo CCS 50kW is also in the scope. On electric motor, should use current engine from ZOE with 60kW power

Really impressive!

Hold on, they shifted a lot of registrations from 2019 -> 2020 due to CAFE regulations…let’s be patient and wait for a bit to see the real trend. However, they forecast around 100k ZOE for the whole 2020 year.

According to automobile, the new Twingo ev will only get a 22kwh battery with a range up to 180km WLTP. Only 22kw AC charging. They really need to price this right to be competitive vs e-up/citigo/mii.
