The 4EVER Trophy prototype will be unveiled on the 22nd of May.
This future retro-flavored crossover will be fully electric.
Renault will also launch an EV version of its mythical 5.
In North America, there is still an unconditional love for the Renault brand. More than thirty years after its withdrawal from the continent, there is still a craze for the brand’s products, mostly for the very popular Renault 5.
But we mustn’t forget the Renault 4, the car that will return to the French manufacturer’s lineup in a few years, in electric mode of course!
In this regard, Renault has just unveiled this superb concept clearly inspired by the old model but with a new color this time, called Bleu Ile-de-France. The concept, which was first unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show in a grey hue, will make another public appearance at the Roland-Garros Tournament in Paris later this month, on May 22 to be exact.
To enhance its adventurous appearance, parts of the concept have also been repainted in fluorescent yellow, including the roof rack straps, bumper, shock absorber springs and wheel emblems. And the manufacturer is not even hiding it: these fluorescent yellow accents are a nod to the color of the tennis balls that will be used during the tournament.
The French carmaker is already at the height of the electrification race with a few models currently powered by electricity such as the Renault Mégane E-Tech electric, the Renault ZOE E-Tech electric and the Renault Twingo E-Tech electric.
But it’s clear that a new, fully electric Renault 5 will be released, while this modern Renault 4 has everything it takes to appeal to drivers looking for a small utility vehicle, but also to those with a nostalgic streak.
Both retro-flavored models will be based on the new CMF-BEV platform for B-segment vehicles, also known as sub-compacts in North America.
While the chances of seeing a diamond-tattooed model on this side of the Atlantic are nil, you can bet that the Renault 5 and Renault 4 would be a hit, especially with nostalgic consumers.
