Renault presents visitors to the Frankfurt Motor Show with the prototype of a vehicle for the cities of the year 2030. Named the Symbioz model, since, according to the French brand, it is a concept that represents the vision of the future of mobility, being a car with the capacity to interact in symbiosis with cities, dwellings and road infrastructures. In fact, to demonstrate this interactivity between vehicle and housing, Renault did not just show the Symbioz Concept: also showed the prototype of a house that communicates with the car. “The way we use cars is changing. Full of technologies, vehicles are becoming a personalized and interactive space that connects passengers to other cars, people and objects around them, “points out the brand that justifies the reason that led her to present in an automobile event more than a car : “We can not think about the design of a car, isolating it from the ecosystem that surrounds us.”
The Renault Symbioz is an electric vehicle, of autonomous and connected driving, based on which, Renault will make a demonstration vehicle, at the end of the year. “This demonstration vehicle will integrate the medium-term vision of the brand and anticipate the Renault technology that customers will find in their cars in the near future. It includes an evolved version of Multi-Sense technology, which already adapts the environment and the driving experience to the mood or needs of the driver in some models of the current line, such as Mégane, Scénic, Talisman and Espace “, informs the brand.

The smallest model of the French brand tries to increase its sales with a special edition and limited to 2,000 units.

Developed along with the Smart Forfour, the Twingo is now offered with front-wheel drive and its characteristic three-door version to a five-door model, increasing its versatility and making it more practical, but it appears that it is not having the expected success . Based on the Intens + finish level of the Twingo, the ‘La Parisienne’ features a more elegant style reminiscent of the old 4L with carcases of mirrors in the black color, as well as in the embroidery grid, and has a decorative strip that uses the waist line with a good French taste.
In addition, the aluminum wheels are 16 inches with a diamond finish and center caps in the color pistachio green. A discreet emblem on the body side guards and door sills identifies this limited edition. Inside, the same pastel green color repeats on different elements, on the air intakes of the air conditioning system, on the edge of the dashboard and on the center console screen, as well as on the multifunction steering wheel controls. The equipment has also been upgraded with optional features now part of the series list, such as the Comfort package with automatic climate control, light sensors, rain sensors and curved lighting, plus rear parking sensors and a specific padding combining leather and fabric with seams on the armrests. For those who enjoy the open skies, the equipment can be further improved with a canvas ceiling. Mechanically there was no alternation.
2017 – RENAULT ZOE e-SPORT CONCEPT
One of the most interesting innovations presented by Renault at the Geneva Motor Show was the Renault ZOE e-Sport Concept. This is an impressive concept based on the small electrical of the French brand: the ZOE. The small sport is an evolution of the small electric model, which loses its tranquil character and urban image for a more proper aspect of a circuit. Just as it defines Renault, ‘from urban to suburban’, although it is really the transformation of small electric into a racing car. The ZOE e-Sport concept has two electric motors, each one on a single axle, with a total combined power of 460 hp, and a new, vastly expanded body made of carbon fiber.
At the front there are exaggerated air intakes and on the side we can appreciate the wide arches of the wheels. At the rear comes a prominent diffuser, but of course there are no exhaust outlets. The resulting image is spectacular, almost unreal. The ZOE is completely transformed and the new sporting design is reminiscent of the preparations that were made by Matra and Renault with the Espace F1 in the early 1990s, which fitted the engine used in the Williams-Renault Formula 1. The colors and design details are taken from the single-seater Renault Formula E team. Thanks to the manufacture in carbon fiber, the set weighs 1,400 kilos, counting also with the package of batteries, that weighs alone 450 kilos. This allows the ZOE e-Sport to reach 100 km / h in only 3.2 seconds.
