Renault-Nissan CEO at Paris Auto Show: Diesel Isn't Dead Yet

Thursday, 29 September 2016 07:43 AM

PARIS (AP) — Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn isn't ready to give up on diesel — though he admits that tougher emissions rules emerging from the Volkswagen scandal are a boon to his company's bet on electric cars.

In an interview Thursday with The Associated Press at the Paris auto show, Ghosn said, "Without any doubt we will continue to develop diesel," particularly for SUVs and other high-range cars.

Renault also invested early and big in electric cars, and he added, "Anything that goes toward more electric cars is good for us." Renault unveiled its latest Zoe electric car model Thursday, with 400 kilometers (240 miles) of autonomy.

European authorities are tightening environmental rules and investigating carmakers after Volkswagen was found to have used engine software to cheat on U.S. diesel emissions tests.
