As part of its commitment to the electrification of the Spanish fleet, Mobilize, the Renault Group brand dedicated to new mobility, has announced at the Barcelona Motor Show the construction of a network of 200 Supercharger stations in Europe, of which 40 will be built. Spain.
All stations will have multiple chargers providing a minimum of 150 kW of DC power, they will be located on the main highways of the country in such a way that the entire national territory will be covered (one station every 150 km on the highest flow highways) ..
In addition to Superchargers, they will have rest areas open 24/7 where customers can comfortably wait for the vehicle to charge.
In 2011 Renault began manufacturing a full range of zero emissions vehicles, made up of the Twizy, Zoe and electric versions of the Fluence and Kangoo. Now the brand benefits from the expertise and successes achieved over the years, being the brand with the most electric vehicles on the road in Spain: more than 15,000. In addition, the 100% electric Zoe e-Tec and 100% electric Kangoo e-Tec vans hold the title of being the best-selling passenger car and light commercial vehicle in Spain during the period 2010–2023.
Its strong commitment to electrification also includes hybrid technology, which represents an optimal tool for achieving an orderly ecological transition. Renault’s e-Tec full hybrid models make it possible to reduce emissions in an accessible way, both economically and in use, as their drivers are not dependent on charging infrastructure.
Renault’s range of hybrid vehicles covers the main segment of the Spanish market made up of the New Clio, Captur, Arkana, Australasia and New Espace. Thanks to the brand’s revolutionary E-Tech full hybrid engine, which holds over 150 Formula 1 patents, the SUV range achieves the lowest CO2 emissions in its respective segment. In addition, Renault is the only brand with C-SUV and D-SUV range to receive the eco environment label awarded by DGT across all its variants.
All this has made Renault the fastest growing brand in the hybrid vehicle market, achieving a growth of over 120% over the previous year. Not surprisingly, Spain is the Renault group’s hybridization pole: in addition to the Captur and Megane, production of the Australasia and the Nuevo Espace have recently begun at the Palencia factory, the most “Made in Spain” cars in history.
