Renault Wins Order for Electric Cars: The auto maker has won what it claims to be the world's biggest single contract for electric cars with the sale of 150 vehicles to Nutek, a Swedish public sector organization promoting energy conservation and technology. An electric version of the French company's Clio hatchback will be tested by a 25-strong group of local authorities and public and private sector companies. Larger orders have been made for electric utility vehicles, such as rubbish disposal and delivery vans, but electric car orders have been for small batches. Nutek, which supplied the specifications for the tender, will provide a subsidy of $2,273 per vehicle. Each car, which has a top speed of about 59 m.p.h. and a range of 52.8 miles, will cost about $30,307.
