Battery Spy Scandal Revealed No 'Critical' Information, Says Renault
PARIS — A top executive at Renault said over the weekend that “nothing critical” appeared to have been stolen from the automaker’s electric vehicle program in an industrial espionage case that prompted the company to suspend three executives this week.
A French official, meanwhile, sought to play down the possibility of Chinese involvement in the matter, saying the government would wait for the results of an investigation.
In an interview published Saturday in the French newspaper Le Monde, Patrick Pelata, Renault’s chief operating officer, said that an internal investigation that began in August had led the company to conclude it was the target of “a system organized to collect economic, technological and strategic information to serve interests abroad.”
