  • Focusing on EVs and connected mobility towards 2030.
  • Investing EUR 23 billion over the next five years to accelerate electrification.
  • Introducing 35 new EV models based on five EV-specific common platforms by 2030.

  The content of their roadmap is connected to Renault's new strategy to become a Next Gen automotive company as well as new initiatives of the three alliance companies announced in February 2023.
