AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France, July 6 (Reuters) - French carmaker Renault and its Japanese partner Nissan will have sold 100,000 electric vehicles this month, Carlos Ghosn, chief executive of both companies, said on Saturday at a conference in the southern French city of Aix-en-Provence.

He also said that he does not expect any strong recovery in the troubled European auto sector in the medium term.

Ghosn, who has ploughed a bigger share of his companies' cash into electric car technology than any other mass-market carmaker, said that the alliance's investment in hybrid and electric vehicles "is not a bet, it is a certainty."
