The French hit car, the R5, introduced in 1972, soon adds to the Renault range as a stylish electric car.

This is not the first time that Renault has tried to summon the exceptionally successful Renault 5, as we do not forget that Csaba Wittinger also evoked the rally version of the box-shaped small car in his study of the current farm-powered Twingo TwinZ and TwinRun. And now, if you can believe the press, we can see the quasi-series-produced new Renault 5 in the figures and video here. It is no coincidence that this recurring attachment to the R5, as it was consistently the highest-selling car in France between 1972 and 1986 and produced a total of 5,580,630 copies.

One cannot make a mistake with such a car, the heads of the French manufacturer thought, and by combining the pleasant with the useful, they immediately bring back the legendary type as an electric car; perhaps users will be willing to forgive possible trade-offs. The Zoe is popular with customers who were already looking for an electric car, but now Renault also wants to appeal to customers who haven’t talked about it before, influencing their childhood memories.

Of course, using modern technology, the details have been redesigned by the designers, the lighting is LED, which was an air vent on the hood, it will be the cover of the charging connector in the future – the charging column on the left and right will be easy to use this component – in addition to the rear lights, baffles that optimize airflow are added. The roof was covered with fabric, the front and rear markings were illuminated, and the French tricolor appears in the rearview mirrors.

“The Renault 5 prototype was inspired by the cult model of our heritage, the R5. This prototype simply embodies modernity, the age-appropriate vehicle: urban, electric, attractive, ”said Gilles Vidal, Renault’s director of design for the car, which is a precursor to the mass-produced model that will go on sale before 2025. We don’t know anything about the technical content yet.
