In a press release, Renault posted two teaser photos of the all-new Renault 4 electric car, which will debut at the Paris Motor Show on October 17th.But they clearly hint at his SUV-type vehicle, which is small with excellent ground clearance and the ability to take intrepid travelers wherever roads, trails, or cartpaths are available. They are showing a car with a thick atmosphere Ara The new Ford Bronco, the iconic Jeep Wrangler, and multiple products from other manufacturers who want to make money on rugged off-road, the “let’s sleep under the stars on the roof of our car” move.
The Renault 4 will be one of ten fully electric models to be launched by the Groupe Renault by 2025. These include the compact Mégane E-Tech, which will go on sale earlier this year, the Renault 5 in early 2024, and a compact SUV to be called Scénic. , a midsize SUV, and his two models of the sports car brand Alpine (a small “hot hatch” and a large SUV).
The Renault 4, Renault 5 and Alpine small cars will be built on a new platform called CMR-BEV derived from the existing Renault/Nissan CMF-B platform.according to auto news europe, The architecture has a new central section to house the flat battery pack, but 50% of its components are carried over from the CMF-B platform. Renault and Nissan will share his CMF-BEV platform for small cars and his CMF-EV platform for small and medium-sized cars. By 2030, all new Renault models launched in Europe must be electrified, said Renault CEO Luca de Meo.
The original Renault 4 was a practical five-door car that sold nearly 8 million units over its 30-year lifespan. It was the latest version of the Deux Chevaux, the cheap, underpowered, very capable car that helped France get back on the road after the war.
The 4 featured the quirky style typical of French cars (see our recent article on the Citroën Ori), but like the Deux Chevaux, it was just what the market needed at the time, at an affordable price. It was a practical basic means of transport.He also made a cameo appearance in the movie Romancing the StoneHints of the original 4L can be seen in the headlights and trapezoidal side windows in the teaser photos.
It’s not uncommon for car companies to reach out for model names that resonate with their loyal customers. Ford has the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, and GM has his new Equinox, Blazer, Silverado EV and Hummer EV. Indeed, Renault hopes to capitalize on the reservoir of goodwill left over from his original 4L and 5 (known in the US as his Le Car) as it transitions into the electric car era. If the new car were as popular as the original, the Renault C-suite would have a lot of smiles.
