Risks and opportunities


Renault is awarded a trend score of =. If Renault were reassessed in the near term, its score would most likely remain the same. The primary area Renault needs to improve is its share of sales that come from low carbon vehicles. While Renault has a short-term electric vehicle strategy, the company does not show any intention of selling fewer internal combustion engine vehicles. Furthermore, the company’s consumer engagement does not show clear promotion of low-carbon vehicles over conventional higher-emitting ones, suggesting that in the short-term Renault’s sales of internal combustion engine vehicles will continue to far outweigh its low-carbon vehicle sales.
