RENAULT R5 Electric: the price ultimately much higher than expected ?

The price of the future electric Renault R5 should significantly exceed what was planned. If the leader of the Fabrice Cambolive group claims to work on an invoice to “less than 30.000 euros “, nothing has yet been set.

The separation of the Ampere electric subsidiary with Renault Group should “further reduce the costs of an electric car,” said Fabrice Cambolive recently. In an interview given to the Autogazette magazine, the manager of the diamond brand has however remained cautious about his new 100 % electric city car. Because it seems that the new electric Renault R5 can cost more than expected. It should see the light of day in the course of next year, after being presented to the public during the renaulution of 2021, Recalls Frandroid. While the manufacturer was initially tabling on an invoice around 20.000 euros, the forecasts gradually went around 25.Euros.

Renault is not yet fixed, justified its manager. According to Fabrice Cambolive, the electric city car should actually revolve around this price range, even if nothing has yet been validated. “We work hard to market the R5 for less than 30.000 euros ”, he confirmed. If no one still knows all the technical characteristics of the new model, it could get closer to the Renault Zoé, itself sold from 30.100 euros, ecological bonus of 5.000 euros deduced.

Costly workforce and high energy price

The increase in the price of the R5, which was initially to be cheaper than the Zoé, can be explained by the manufacture of the vehicle in France. It is indeed the Douai factory in the North, which is responsible for it. However, French labor has a cost. It is also necessary to take into account the price of raw materials, which has increased in recent months, just like that of energy, which is still not stabilized. The price of the R5 should thus be affected.

But Renault has every interest in not exceeding the terminals, because the manufacturer in the diamond wishes to apply for the electric car project at 100 euros per month promised by President Emmanuel Macron, point our colleagues. If the R5 is too expensive, it will not be able to get into the nails of the measurement, and this would lead to a significant drop in the purchases of the French, which will be numerous to condition their choice by this offer. Renault thus focuses on a simplified design and a battery offering greater energy density. The R5 must also be available in Alpine version, inspired by the concept A290_β.
