Renault Group places France at the heart of its industrial strategy for EV batteries

A major milestone of the ‘Renaulution’ road map, the Group's battery strategy comes to life through the signing of two major partnerships: with Envision AESC – a global player in world-leading battery technology and smart, digitalised, low-carbon battery plants, and a long-standing partner of Nissan – and Verkor, the Grenoble-based start-up specialised in development of EV battery cells. This strategy will help Renault Group become a more competitive and efficient EV player, accelerate its industrial transformation, and reach its ecological transition targets.

These two most recent partnerships go hand-in-hand with existing programmes within  Renault Group, in particular the historic agreement with LG Chem, which currently supplies battery modules for Renault's electric range and for the upcoming MéganE.  In parallel, there are ongoing discussions with ACC to potentially join the ecosystem as of 2027.  Research also continues within the Alliance to deploy solid battery technology from 2030, with the ASSB project (All Solid-State Battery technology).

Luca de Meo, CEO of Renault Group, said: Our battery strategy builds on Renault Group’s ten years of experience and investment in the electric mobility value chain. The latest strategic partnerships with Envision AESC and Verkor greatly bolster our position as we ensure the Europe-based production of one million electric vehicles by 2030. This marks a major milestone as we strengthen our competitive edge, by rooting our Group in the underlying momentum of French industry and striving to reach our carbon neutrality objectives. The Group thus reaffirms its willingness to produce popular, affordable, and cost-effective electric cars in France.”
