2011 Renault Twizy – Click above for high-res image gallery

At least one part of Renault's grand plug-in vehicle scheme has been delayed.

Initially, the automaker was to open the doors to its lithium-ion battery production facility outside of Paris, France in late 2012. Unfortunately, undisclosed issues have forced Renault to delay construction of the factory. A spokesman for the French automaker confirmed reports that the factory will not be functional until "early 2014."

This means that Renault will be forced to turn to AESC, the joint venture between Nissan and NEC, and South Korea's LG Chem for li-ion power for its electric vehicles, including the Fluence, Kangoo, Twizy and Zoe.
