The Renault Trezor concept car debuted at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. The author of the appearance of the car was the chief designer of the brand Lawrence van den Acker, who tried to make the style of Renault more rigorous and concise.
Renault Trezor received a dynamic silhouette, narrow headlights and lanterns, embossed body panels with various textures. The coupe does not have traditional doors; to access the two-seater saloon, it is necessary to raise a huge “hood” that combines part of the roof, hood and panoramic glass.
The interior was no less futuristic. The polygonal steering wheel when switching to unmanned mode breaks into two halves, which are scattered to the sides. The central place on the front panel is occupied by displays and touch panels.
The technical “stuffing” of the Renault Trezor concept was borrowed from Formula E-series electric racing cars: an electric motor with a capacity of 350 liters. from. on the rear axle, two batteries and an energy recovery system. Also, the car is equipped with an autonomous driving system. Theoretically, a coupe with such characteristics should accelerate to hundreds in less than four seconds.
Renault themselves say:
“As the leader in sales of electric vehicles in Europe, we have installed a 100% electric motor in Renault TREZOR Concept. The Renault TREZOR Concept powerplant was borrowed from a Formula E racing car of the Renault e.dams factory team, two-time world champion. The engine develops power of 260 kW (350 hp) and a torque of 380 Nm, accelerating the coupe to 100 km / h in less than 4 seconds. As in Formula E cars, this car uses RESS (Rechargeable Energy Storage System) technology, which provides energy recovery during braking. ”
Interface that makes life easier
TREZOR gives you an insight into Renault’s new dashboard design. The unique L-shaped touch screen, which enhances the feeling of being in the car, combines the dashboard screen and multimedia screen.
It uses the latest OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) technology and Gorilla® glass. A thin curved screen reveals all the benefits of a customizable touch interface. Applications from your smartphone are displayed on the screen of the multimedia system, and you just need to drag the desired application onto the screen in front of the steering wheel.
Serial production of a car similar to the Trezor concept is not planned.
