Renault's head of electric vehicles, Gilles Normand, will speak at the 2017 Automotive News Europe Congress.
Normand says mainstream acceptance of EVs is reaching a tipping point as more automakers develop battery powered cars and their driving ranges get longer.
Renault and its alliance partner Nissan were early believers in the electric car, investing 4 billion euros to develop cars including the Renault Zoe subcompact hatchback and Nissan Leaf.
Normand, a veteran of nearly 30 years at Renault--Nissan who started in his current post on Jan. 1, has led Nissan's sales operations in Latin America, then Nissan's operations in Africa, Middle East and India before returning to Europe to take charge of Infiniti and light commercial vehicles in the region. Before taking on his current role on Jan. 1, he was head of Asia-Pacific for Renault.
