At least 150,000 will be "Zoe" cars, which will be launched in mid-2012 using a modified version of the Clio platform, according to the article.

Renault says electric vehicles will account for a higher share of the group's overall production than the 5 percent estimated for the industry in 2015-2016, la Tribune added.

Renault declined to comment.
