AIX-EN-PROVENCE, France, July 6 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."
