Electric Renault 5 takes over from Peugeot

Peugeot and Roland Garros go way back. Ever since the 205, Peugeot introduced Roland Garros versions of some of its models every few years, each of which had a fairly rich equipment and quirky yet classic decoration. The 106, 306, 206 CC and 806, among others, had such a version. Especially the color dark green often came back, in combination with a badge or two to indicate that you were dealing with a special edition. As far as the latter is concerned, little has changed now, but there is certainly change. Since last year, it is not Peugeot, but Renault that is committed to the tennis tournament as a French car manufacturer. That is why the brand now presents a Roland Garros version of its electric Renault 5 Prototype, with the French mentioning that it is the harbinger of a production version. Whether this concerns a limited special edition or ‘just’ a not too exclusive level of equipment, remains to be seen. The logo that you previously found on various Peugeots for years. Less ‘sporty’ color scheme than we have seen so far The Renault 5 Prototype that the brand will unveil at Roland Garros (which takes place from 22 May to 11 June) certainly does not lack the aforementioned badges. In addition, the car is sprayed by Renault in satin white, while the wheels are given a blue tint and the roofline has a light-colored accent. Here and there you will find references to the tennis tournament in and on the car, such as behind the front screens. The production version of the Renault 5 has yet to be revealed and may follow this year. The fully electric B-segmenter will be available at dealers in 2024, with Renault aiming for a sharper asking price than that of the competition. Incidentally, Alpine has also poured its sauce over the prototype, with this car as a result.
