Renault today confirmed that two of its Z.E. (zero emission) concept cars will go into production.
The Twizy Z.E city car will be manufactured from 2011 in Renault's Valladolid factory in Spain.
In 2012, an electric supermini will go into production at Renault's Flins factory near Paris, and is predicted to account for two-thirds of the group's electric vehicle sales in Europe.
Flins will also be the site for the manufacture and recycling of electric vehicle batteries.
The Valladolid factory will also produce a new internal combustion engine in 2012, and a new fossil-fuel car in 2013.
