Renault has committed to selling by 2008 one million vehicles emitting less than 140 g/km of CO2, of which one-third emit less than 120 g/km. The Renault eco² signature backs up this pledge by proposing a range of economical cars consuming less than 5.3 l/100 km, for diesels, and less than 5.9 l/100, for gasoline models*.
Some Renault eco² vehicles run on biofuels, which help to reduce CO2 emissions by 20% to 70% depending on the biological matter used*. Renault plans to boost its offer by 2009, with 100% of its diesels able to run on biofuel and 50% of its gasoline powerplants able to run on a gasoline/ethanol blend.
The Group is also committed to developing its range of vehicles running on compressed natural gas (CNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). And the Renault Nissan Alliance’s “zero emissions” objective is reflected in a significant investment in electric vehicle development.
