PARIS, Sept 11 French carmaker Renault
is set to partner Bollore to boost its presence in
electric cars, Le Figaro newspaper reported on Wednesday.
The partnership would apply to the use of charging stations
and batteries, Le Figaro said, without citing its sources.
Renault, which currently buys lithium batteries from South
Korea's LG Chem, might also design a vehicle using
Bollore's lithium-metal-polymer technology, the paper added.
Renault and Bollore declined to comment.
The Bollore family firm is behind Autolib, the electric
car-sharing scheme that has won 100,000 clients since it was
launched in Paris in late 2011.
