The stunning Twizy from Renault!

French auto major Renault has said it is looking at launching zero-emission electric vehicles in India by the middle of this decade.

The company, which unveiled its city two-seater 'Twizy' in the country, also plans to produce up to 500,000 units of electric vehicles (EV) globally by 2014.

"We will launch the electric versions of our family saloon 'Fluence' and the compact utility vehicle 'Kangoo' in 2011 in Denmark and Israel, followed by the launch of Twizy. We hope to bring all these cars to India within four years of their global launch," Renault vice president (corporate affairs and communications) Ashish Sinharoy said.

He said the company will first bring cars to India as completely built units (CBU) but may look for local assembly of manufacturing later.

While Twizy has a single charge mileage of 100 kilometre, Fluence and Kangoo will run up to 140-160 kilometre in a single charge.
