French car­maker Re­nault plans to sell up to 40,000 elec­tric ve­hi­cles (EVs) a year by 2011, which is when the com­pany’s first EVs go on sale. Re­nault’s EV pro­gramme di­rec­tor Thierry Koskas said that num­ber should rise to more than 100,000 units a year be­tween 2012 and 2015, with the EV range span­ning four model lines – a small sedan, a light van, a five-seater city car, and a fourth ve­hi­cle ‘‘aimed at cus­tomers want­ing a car for short jour­neys’’.
