Spectacular Renault Trezor Concept photos, videos and info
Renault has unveiled the Renault Trezor Concept at the Paris Motor Show, and it offers a strong hint of the future Renault range. The stunningly low, wide, sleek and smooth grand touring coupé embodies the design philosophy that Renault introduced with another of its concepts, the DeZir, which went on to inspire the lines of the new Clio in 2012.
‘Warm, simple, sensual lines’, along with a clearly defined family face and the C-shaped lighting signature, are styling cues all Renaults share, but the Trezor takes things further and prepares the way for styling trends likely to be seen in upcoming Renaults.
There are certainly some unique concept-car touches, however, such as the hexagonal shapes in the bonnet, which provide variable-geometry intakes, and the fuel filler hatch replaced by an analogue gauge, showing the vehicle’s battery charge. The futuristic cockpit also offers a taste of the sleeker, more refined interiors of future Renaults, complete with cutting-edge connectivity and highly customisable displays. Autonomous driving is a highlight of the Trezor, and this supports Renault’s target to make ‘hands-off/eyes-off’ technology available for its mainstream vehicles beyond 2020.

Despite being able to drive itself, the Trezor majors on driver pleasure as well. In addition to being Europe’s best-selling electric-vehicle manufacturer, Renault is a specialist in all-electric motorsport through its participation in the FIA Formula E Championship, and this shines through in the Trezor. Its electric motors are derived from the Renault e.dams, two-time winner of the Formula E Teams’ world title, and they boast a maximum power of 350hp and peak torque of 380Nm; it will do 0-62mph in less than four seconds. With Renault’s commitment to all-electric drive, it looks to be an exciting future for Renault cars.
