Today Renault, the French parent company of forward-thinking Nissan, announced that they would have not one, or two, but THREE electric cars on the consumer market by 2012. Two of the three will be based on current models, the Kangoo MPV and the Megane; one model will be an all-new five-seater, designed to appeal to a young, hip consumer. Renault plans to showcase the new EVs at the 2012 Olympics in London, using them to shuttle athletes and spectators to and from events across the city.
