Thermal and hybrid vehicles will probably still account for up to 50% of global passenger car sales by 2040. Developing efficient, low-emission technologies in this field is essential. Renault Group is committed to developing its core business with this in mind and is drawing on the expertise of its Horse subsidiary to develop a new range of internal combustion and hybrid powertrains for Renault and Dacia vehicles. In partnership with carmaker Geely, it is creating a global supplier of low-emission combustion and hybrid powertrains.
A major contributor to the Group's decarbonisation objectives, Ampere will develop, manufacture and market a range of 100% electric passenger cars under the Renault brand. Six electric vehicles manufactured in France will be launched by 2030. Ampere also aims to achieve carbon neutrality in its manufacturing from 2025.
With the aim of creating a European value chain for electric vehicles, Ampere will work with the most relevant players to gain access to know-how, ensure sustainable supply and gain greater clarity and control over costs and performance. From 10% coverage of the electric vehicle value chain in 2020, Ampere will cover more than 30% at its launch and will reach 80% by 2030.
A fully-fledged car manufacturer, Ampere will have around 10,000 employees. Thanks to Reknow University's training programmes, Ampere is also helping to develop and improve its employees' skills in the professions of tomorrow.
Alpine is developing a brand new range that will support its growth and international ambitions and will be fully electric from 2026. A fully-fledged, asset-light, technology-focused manufacturer with a team of 2,000 people, 50% of whom are engineers, Alpine gains access to Ampere's electrical and software technology assets within the Renault Group. Alpine aims to achieve manufacturing neutrality by 2030.
In 2022, Alpine launched the Rac(h)er programme to actively promote inclusion and diversity at all levels of the company, including Formula 1. This commitment is reflected in the fact that the Alpine Management Committee has already achieved gender parity. This programme is designed to reinforce equal opportunities through meritocracy, regardless of gender and in all areas of the automotive industry.
Mobilize combines financial, mobility, energy and data services. Aimed at private individuals and fleets, its offering is designed in a "Vehicle as a service" spirit, where users only pay for what they use, based on time or mileage.
The offering is based on three 100% electric vehicles, all of which have been custom-designed with service and user experience at the heart of their concept:
Mobilize supports an electric ecosystem by offering a complete recharging package with the Mobilize Powerbox®, a connected recharging station, and the Mobilize Charge Pass application, which gives access to a network of more than 260,000 charging points across 25 European countries.
In conjunction with the Refactory in Flins, Mobilize will be able to give a second life to batteries no longer used in cars.
