Published on July 1, 2024, this document first discusses the integration of LFP (lithium iron phosphate) battery technology alongside NMC (nickel manganese cobalt) solutions at Ampere, the group's subsidiary dedicated to electric vehicles.

Renault also explains that it has developed Cell-to-Pack technology with LG.Cell-to-pack will allow more cells to be integrated into a given space, improving autonomy with vehicles equipped with LFP. A way to get around the defect of the lower energy density“, noted Clean Automobile.

For Renault, the introduction of these two technologies would be a big plus on the production side. The group is indeed talking about a 20% reduction in the cost of batteries from the beginning of 2026 thanks to the latter. We can therefore expect that the Twingo And R5 electric take advantage of it.

As a bonus, we learn that the production process is 100% European thanks to “four leading partners in batteries”:

  • AESC, located as close as possible to the Ampere ElectriCity site in Douai (France), for NMC batteries
  • CATL for LFP technology, from its factory in Hungary
  • LG Energy Solution established in Poland, for NMC and LFP technologies
  • Verkor, for NMC technology from its gigafactory in Dunkirk (France)
