This is the Renault Trezor, and it seems to be a follow-up from the 2010 DeZir concept. It’s a two-seater all-electric coupe that represents the new design philosophy of the French manufacturer.
Based on this, it’s safe to assume that all future Renault models will have design cues based on this model, much like current models draw inspiration from the DeZir. The inspiration behind this design are French design and easy life.
The design claims to be a throwback to classic racecars. It stands 1 080 mm tall and replaces doors with a clamshell hatch roof. Front lighting is provided by LEDs but the rear makes use of an interesting fibre optic and red laser infusion.
Needless to say, interior space is limited but, while making use of red wood and leather, it at least appears to be quite luxurious. Again, this is an attempt to merge the past with the future. In this particular case, it’s hard to say it doesn’t work.
The dashboard, which makes use of an OLED interface, was designed by a firm called KEIM-cycles, which specialises in wooden-frame bicycles, while the steering wheel features influences from F1 cars.
Powering the Trezor’s rear wheels will be the Formula E style 260 kW and 380 N.m electric motor powered by two batteries. This gives the concept a 0-100 km/h time of less than four seconds. Regenerative braking is also included.
If you don’t feel like driving, the Trezor also has autonomous driving capabilities.
