Renault Z.E. concept

Renault is currently working on a trio of electric cars that will be rolled out starting in 2011. The first to appear will be a four-door sedan based on the Megane. This one will debut in Israel as part of the Better Place rollout that includes a charging and battery exchange infrastructure. A battery-powered version of the Kangoo MPV will also be built. That vehicle will be used as a competitor and VIP shuttle for the 2012 London Olympic games. The Megane and Kangoo are expected to have a range of about 100-120 miles on a charge with a charge time ranging from 30 minutes to 8 hours depending on the current available from the outlet. The third car will be a dedicated EV city car. It is expected to be slightly larger than the Twingo mini but the timing of that car is unknown at this time.
