2016 Paris Motor Show – Renault Trezor Concept
The Renault Trezor Concept is a wonderful collection of advanced electric and autonomous technologies developed by the French car maker. Unveiled at the Paris Auto Show, the sleek, two-door design offers a look of upcoming Renault models – the diamond badge might not be present on other vehicles, though.
On the outside, an innovative carbon fiber body benefits from flowing and smooth lines complemented by an elongated decklid and horizontal taillights. Other unique features include the absence of a traditional front grille and that red, wrap-around windscreen that gets your attention in an instant.
Renault Trezor packs some serious technologies, such as the electric motor derived from the company’s Formula E race car. It outputs 350 hp and 380 Nm of torque, allowing the Trezor to do 0 to 62 mph (100 km) in less than 4 seconds. Two batteries and a brake-operated energy recovery system work hard on keeping this concept on the edge, although the vehicle weighs in at 1,600 kg (3,527 pounds).
The Renault Treazor also brags about a fully-autonomous driving mode, featuring a central screen, with Renault promising to offer “hands-off/eyes-off” autonomous features to its range sometime after 2020. The aforementioned curved screen combines OLED technology with Corning Gorilla Glass – no back-lighting required. Does this remember you of a Mercedes concept a while back?
