CTOnews.com December 11 news, German newspaper Handelsblatt reported that Volkswagen is in "very early" negotiations with Renault, hoping to jointly develop a cheap electric model. Of course, Renault is just one of the potential partners.
People familiar with the matter said the new car would cost less than 20000 euros when launched in Europe (CTOnews.com notes: currently about 155,000 yuan); Volkswagen and its partners can produce 200,000 to 250,000 new cars a year.
In fact, both companies have plans in the past, with Volkswagen planning to launch an entry-level ID.1 model in the next few years, while Renault is developing a redesigned Twingo electric model, which is expected to be less than £ 17,000 (currently about RMB153, 000).
According to data from automotive research firm JATO Dynamics, the average price of electric vehicles in Europe exceeded 65000 euros in the first half of 2023, while retail prices in China were slightly higher than 31000 euros, which is less than half the level.
In November, Volkswagen Group CEO Oliver Blume said he thought it was possible to launch a € 20,000 electric car in the second half of the century, but Volkswagen had yet to make a final decision on the project.
Volkswagen Group Chief Financial Officer Arno Antlitz said in June that the German giant was going all out to develop an electric car of about 20,000 euros; the larger ID 2 would cost about 25,000 euros. He added that raw material costs would be a key factor.
However, the company is currently embarking on a wide-ranging cost-cutting program. Thomas Schäfer, head of the Volkswagen brand, said that 10 billion euros (currently about 77.4 billion yuan) will be saved over the next three years, which may indicate that Volkswagen needs to optimize existing development plans and focus on cost effectiveness, so it is uncertain whether ID.1 will continue to develop.
Renault will launch a new Twingo electric car in 2026 for less than £ 17,000
