Renault Group unveils future plans: 24 new models by 2025, electric-only Alpine to replace Renault Sport

Renault has taken the wraps off 'Renaulution', its plan to "restore Groupe Renault's competitiveness", consolidate its product portfolio and boost profit worldwide. Whereas Renault's existing product roadmap saw it chase volumes and outright sales, the new plan – created under new CEO Luca de Meo, who arrived from Seat in early 2020 – will see the group streamline its model range and development processes worldwide, in an effort to increase per-vehicle profits.
