Renault denies tech at heart of spy scandal

Strategy and pricing info, not batteries

Build a business case: developing custom apps

The boss of Renault said spies found within the company's electric car division were after business information not technical secrets.

It had been assumed that the spying related to technology - most likely battery technology. Three senior Renault managers have been suspended without pay, and are taking legal action to clear their names.

Speaking to French newspapers and TV, Renault chief executive Carlos Ghosn said the information which had been taken related to Renault's "economic information... not technological information".

Carlos Ghosn said the spying would have no impact on upcoming vehicle launches.

He said he had no opinion on where the information was going - but that the investigation would find out.
