Renault & Bolloré team up on three-seater EV

The two groups have signed a letter of intent that covers plans for a possible joint venture to win and run new car-sharing projects, similar to the Autolib’ project spearheaded by Bolloré around the Paris region. This could also see Renault take a stake in the Bolloré Group’s BlueLy and Bluecab car-sharing services, based in Lyon and Bordeaux respectively.

Renault and Bolloré are also looking to co-operate on the production of Bolloré’s Bluecar four-seater model as well as the new convertible model due next June. This would see some production transferred to Renault’s Dieppe plan.

The firms are also looking at the development and production of a three-seater electric vehicle. The vehicle would have a range of over 200km / 120 miles and use a 20kWh Bolloré battery.
