This is the Renault Trezor Concept and its been making some waves at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. It’s a two-door electric sports coupe that features a long hood and muscular lines.
Laurens Van Den Acker, corporate design cheif mentioned that “This concept car is the fruit of a freedom of expression and prepares the way for the trends we are likely to see in our upcoming vehicles,” although this might be a long shot, seeing how Renault is focused on smaller hot hatches rather than coupes and exotic supercars.
The Renault Trezor Concept is as low as they come, with 22 inch wheels in the back and 21-inch wheels up front. You wont mistake this car for an average sportscar. Never-mind the snazzy huge rims, the paint is infused with bee-hive pattern shapes to make it look exotically futuristic and the entire roof can be lifted up because there aren’t any doors like you would find in a normal car.
Overall, the Renault Trezor Concept is a fantastic preview of the future and a danm good example at showing auto enthusiasts that electric cars aren’t going to be boring. The electric motor was derived from Renault’s two-time winning Formula E team, it can produce 350-hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. The Renault Trezor Concept can hit 0-62 mph in under 4 seconds.
The electric motor is aided by two batteries that have their own cooling system utilizing the air intake in the bonnet, while regenerative braking is used to assist in electric power – the same system developed for the Formula E series.
Renault also mentioned that the Renault Trezor Concept has autonomous capabilities. With three modes that include; Neutral, Sport and Autonomous giving the driver full control. Renault is expecting to advance its autonomous eyes off/hands off technology by 2020 for the public on its production vehicles.
The interior of the Trezor gives us a look at the direction most cars are headed for in the near future with barely any buttons and a huge L-shaped touch screen that houses all the information you need.
