New All-Electric Renault 5 E-TECH Prototype

The cult classic Renault 5 supermini gets reinvented into a modern EV icon

Introducing the Renault 5 Prototype, a reinvention of the classic Renault 5 icon. Taking the same cheeky, playful character and bringing it up-to-date, the new Renault 5 Prototype is everything that made the original unique, adapted for the 21st century.

With the ‘winking headlight’ design of the original, the prominent Renault insignia on the grille and an iconic, edgy body, the Renault 5 Prototype is instantly recognisable. Much like the Renault Twingo that was reimagined and brought up to date, the new Renault 5 Prototype is a modern twist on an iconic design, resulting in a retro look and feel that so many drivers love. Keep up to date with the latest information by registering your interest.

An Icon Reborn

Predecessor to the Renault Clio, the Renault 5 was a worldwide success. With a quirky design and fun-to-drive characteristics, the 5 became a cult-classic and that same design can be seen today in the new fully-electric Renault 5 Prototype.

With its angular body, the large Renault badge taking centre-place at the front and headlights that give it the impression it’s smiling, the new Renault 5 is instantly recognisable as a successor to the original. In it’s prototype form, the bright yellow paint and contrasting black roof display every angle, crease and curve beautifully.

From concept to reality

The Renault 5 Prototype is an all-electric 5-door supermini. The off-centre bonnet air-intake cleverly serves as the EV charging point and the fog lights in the lower front bumper serve as daytime running lights.

New Renault 5 Technology

The future is electric and so is the new Renault 5 Prototype. Built on the same platform as the Renault ZOE, the new 5 will feature a 50kWh battery for a maximum range of 245 miles. Two electric motor options are currently on offer: either a 108bhp electric motor or a 132bhp motor.

108bhp will provide ample performance for a supermini of the Renault 5’s size. However, the 132bhp motor will unlock the chassis’ full potential and give the 5 the power it craves. With a hot-hatch history, the Renault 5 is the prime candidate to be the first-ever, fully-electric hot hatch.

Lighting the way

A design study in modern LED lighting, the new Renault 5 features both LED matrix technology and a distinctive LED signature. A demonstration into what’s possible with the latest LED tech, the Renault 5 Prototype features a welcome animation where the car seems to come to life as it’s headlights light up in sequence.

This not only adds to the character of the Renault 5 but shows what can be done with these new lighting units. These sequenced lighting animations seem to bring the car to life and can be seen animating from the new logo illumination that then moves outwards towards the main lights.
 

The future, inspired by the past


The original Renault 5 was one of the best selling cars in the world. Predecessor to the Renault Clio, the Renault 5 launched in 1972 and continued to be the supermini of choice until the 1990’s when the Clio arrived.

With the launch of the Gordini, the Renault 5 is known to be one of the world’s true first hot hatches, combining a small, fun-to-drive chassis with a larger more powerful engine. The Renault 5 GT followed in 1980 and has been an iconic hot hatch ever since. From here, Renault R.S. has built on this success and the new Renault 5 Prototype brings that hot hatch feel into the future.
