CEO Ghosn Says Dacia Could Enter Low-Cost Electric Vehicle Segment
It seems that someday Renault’s budget division, Dacia, could get in on the electric vehicle action, too.
Renault CEO Carlos Ghosn doesn’t rule out Dacia eventually entering the EV segment.
As Ghosn recently told Auto Express:
“When demand is ready for this, we will be there.”
“Obviously we are helping with demand by lowering the cost of electric cars and by signing agreements with cities across the world for electric cars.”
“As cities get charging stations more people are going to come, and of course the cost of the cars will come down too. So there is nothing that forbids an electric Dacia car in the future. The day there is demand, of course, we will be able to produce it.”
“Mark my words, in time they are all going to come to it. You cannot continue to prosper in this industry without electric cars and plug-in hybrids. Yes I am bullish about electric cars. In 2020, in this market [Europe], I believe 10 per cent of the market will be electric cars.”
