Renault Scenic Vision is a hydrogen-powered concept

Renault has introduced the long-awaited hydrogen-powered concept. The Renault Scenic Vision is radically different from all its predecessors, as it comes with an SUV-style body.

It is also equipped with an unconventional hybrid drive that combines an electric motor with a fuel cell generator.

The highlight of the concept is H2-Tech technology, which aims to reduce downtime for charging and carbon footprint.

The powertrain consists of a front electric motor that produces 218 hp, a hydrogen fuel cell with a range extension that generates 22 hp and a 40 kWh battery.

This hybrid setting allows the vehicle to carry a twice as light battery for the same range. According to Reno, the Scenic Vision has a 75 percent lower carbon footprint than a conventional battery-powered electric vehicle.

After 2030, when the network of hydrogen stations will (hopefully) expand, the company expects a range of up to 800 km with a hydrogen filling time of about five minutes.

The concept based on the experimental platform is bigger than Megana E-Tech. It weighs 1,700 kg, which is close to the highest equipment specification for the Megane despite the addition of a hydrogen fuel cell.

Chief designer Gilles Vidal said that the concept is 90 percent ready for production, and that the exterior design will be developed.

The concept announces a serial model that will be presented in 2024 – most likely as the fifth generation Scenic.

It will replace the electric-hydrogen drive with a more conventional battery-powered electric drive and will be based on an expanded version of the CMF-EV architecture that will be widely used by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance in the coming years.

As for the use of hydrogen, Renault is already offering the production of commercial fuel cell vehicles under the HIVIA brand and will continue to develop an experimental hydrogen-electric architecture for potential use in future models.
