The French brand wants to take care of safety on the roads. For this reason, new Renault models will be able to reach no more than 180 km/h.
The first of the automotive concerns to propose a technical speed limit on the manufacturer’s side was the Scandinavian brand Volvo. Regardless of the power or performance, the models produced by the concern reach a maximum of 180 km/h. Now it is the turn of the French brand.
Renault plans to introduce 180 km/h limits for all combustion engines. What is more, in the case of electric cars, the maximum speed will be limited to just 160 km/h – mainly in order to maximize the range of the vehicle.
