The electrification for Renault’s Russian manufacturer, Lada, will rely on Russian rules, de Meo mentioned.
The team programs to devote 10 billion euros over the upcoming five yrs in electrification, with alliance husband or wife Nissan also expected to commit at the very least that amount of money. The two automakers will share the CMF-BEV and CMF-EV platforms, with total alliance EV production envisioned to be at minimum 1 million by 2025, about evenly split concerning them, de Meo mentioned.
