Paris Motor Show LIVE: Renault Trezor concept image

The all-electric Trezor concept has been designed as a futuristic grand tourer but more importantly it shows the direction of the styling department on future Renault models.

The Trezor is a direct descendant of the DeZir concept from six years ago – and has the same function: preview the automaker’s new iteration of the corporate design language. The prototype is a two-seater GT with a lovely and sleek design – the body is made out of carbon fiber and there’s also a splash of red glazing. With a low-slung profile, the vehicle has a very long hood muscular fenders for a total length of 4.7 meters – the aggressive stance is even more obvious due to the large 21-inch front and 22-inch rear wheels. The monocoque body is also extremely aerodynamic – with a drag coefficient of just 0.22 – and a spectacular cockpit access hatch. The concept tips the scales at 1, 600 kilograms (3,527 pounds), good for an electric powertrain and its dimensions.


The single piece clamshell roof delivers access to a futuristic interior with room for just two persons. Inside the 2.7-meter wheelbase cabin sits a massive OLED curved display using Corning Gorilla Glass. There’s also autonomous driving assistance on board and the steering changes shape when not in use. Renault has deployed a Formula E-inspired powertrain with 350 hp (260 kW) and 380 Newton-meters (280 pound-feet) of torque, sent to the rear wheels. No range credentials have been advanced, but the model does sprint to 62 mph (100 kph) in less than four seconds.
