The famous Renault 5 returns in a new format – it will be a compact and inexpensive electric car. Sales of the hatchback will start in 2024.
The Goodwood Festival of Speed (UK) shows not only exclusive retro cars and supercars. It was here that the inexpensive electric car Renault 5 debuted. The details of the model were revealed in the press service of the French company.
The new Renault 5 was previously shown only in the photo, and now it has been shown to the public for the first time. The electric car will go on sale from 2024 and will be very affordable – from 20 thousand euros in the basic version.
The Renault 5 electric car is a modern version of the famous compact model of the 80s. The angular design of the modern hatchback is designed in the style of the famous ancestor. The rear door handles are hidden in the roof pillars.
The first specifications of the Renault 5 have also been announced. It will be built on the CMF-BEV platform, designed specifically for compact electric cars. It allows you to reduce the cost by a third compared to Renault Zoe. In particular, a nickel-manganese-cobalt battery helps to reduce the cost of a car. However, the power reserve will not suffer – in the top version it will be 400 km.
The power of the initial Renault 5 2024 is unknown, but it is stated that its flagship sports version from Alpine will receive a 218-horsepower electric motor borrowed from the Renault Megane E -Tech.
Renault 5 is not the only model of the brand that will be revived in the format of an electric car. The new Renault 4 will also be built on the same platform, and it will be an inexpensive electric crossover.
