Renault has recently unveiled the Renault Legend that marks a groundbreaking development in the electric vehicle (EV) industry. This announcement signifies a pivotal shift in the landscape of electric mobility, challenging the norm with its remarkably affordable entry price. Priced at less than €20,000, the Renault Legend is set to become a game-changer in the electric car sector, particularly considering the current average price of electric vehicles hovering around €40,000 in France.
The new era of affordable electric vehicles
The unveiling of the Renault Legend marks a significant moment for the automotive industry. This model is part of Renault’s ambitious plan to launch seven different electric cars by 2031. The introduction of the Renault Legend adds another vehicle to their lineup and makes electric cars accessible to a broader audience. With an expected monthly cost of under 100 euros and best-in-class fuel consumption of just 10 kWh/100 km, the Legend is poised to revolutionize the market.

A strategic vision for electric mobility
Renault’s strategy extends beyond the immediate launch of the Legend. The company is laying the groundwork for a comprehensive electric future with models like the Renault Mégane E-Tech and the Scenic E-Tech. The company’s dedication to this vision is evident in their plans to unveil a large SUV by 2027, featuring ultra-fast charging and an extensive range. These efforts are in line with Renault’s commitment to reducing CO₂ emissions by 75% compared to combustion-powered vehicles in Europe.
The competitive landscape
The Renault Legend enters a highly competitive market, where major players like Volkswagen and Citroën are also focusing on affordable electric models. However, Renault’s approach, particularly with its pricing strategy and focus on urban usability, positions the Legend as a strong contender in this race. The vehicle’s compact size and efficient consumption are tailored to meet the demands of modern city life.
Anticipating the future
