Renault targets 200,000 electric cars in 2015-paper

PARIS, June 7 (Reuters) - French carmaker Renault RENA.PA aims to produce more than 200,000 electric vehicles per year by 2015-2016, French paper La Tribune said, citing company sources.

At least 150,000 will be “Zoe” cars, which will be launched in mid-2012 using a modified version of the Clio platform, according to the article.

Renault says electric vehicles will account for a higher share of the group’s overall production than the 5 percent estimated for the industry in 2015-2016, la Tribune added.

Renault declined to comment. (Reporting by Lionel Laurent; Editing by David Holmes)
