The soul of a brand comes from its roots. Without sinking into the past, it must remain attached to it and be inspired by it to rediscover the spirit of the glorious times.
Renault finally seems to be looking back on its past to offer an electric reinterpretation of its famous icon. Fiat made a big splash for years with its 500, when BMW brought the Mini up to date. Even Volkswagen had tried it (but with less success) with its Beetle. So why not Renault!
With Renault 5 Prototype: Renault wants to democratize the electric car in Europe with a modern approach to the popular and essential car.
Compact and charming city car, it has kept its fun and mischievous side, with a very “pop” yellow body. Renault 5 Prototype takes up the main lines of its original design. The modern approach is also visible in the finishes and materials chosen which are inspired by the world of electronics, furniture and sport.
The R5 is immediately recognizable but with a resolutely contemporary design.
Stylish cues inspired by the original and modernized R5 hide modern functions: the air intake in the hood hides the charging hatch, the taillights incorporate aerodynamic deflectors, and the fog lights in the bumper have become lights LED daylight.
Nods to the original “5” are found on the side grille, wheels and rear logo.
The fabric front and roof are inspired by the world of furniture to give a touch of French charm to the vehicle, a hint of mischief and character that plays on nostalgia.
Front and rear logos light up to bring the car to life. Finally, the French flag on the exterior mirrors underlines the “French touch” of the vehicle.
No date has been given for the production version, but Renault plans to launch 14 new models by 2025, including 7 electric.
