The Renault 5 EV is the electric version of the Renault 5, a classic French car that is being revived by the company. It will be released in 2023 in Europe and in 2024 in the UK. Here are some of the features and specifications of the Renault 5 EV that we know so far:
It will have a retro design inspired by the original Renault 5, with a sloping rear, round headlights, and a black grille. It will also have some modern touches, such as LED lights, a digital dashboard, and a touchscreen infotainment system.
It will be based on a new platform called CMF-BEV, which is designed for small electric vehicles. This platform will allow for more interior space, better performance, and lower costs.
It will offer two battery options: a 40 kWh battery that will provide up to 190 miles of range, and a 60 kWh battery that will provide up to 250 miles of range. The batteries will support fast charging up to 130 kW, which means they can be recharged to 80% in about 30 minutes.
It will feature vehicle-to-grid technology, which means it can feed electricity back to the home or the grid when it is not in use. This can help reduce energy bills, balance the grid, and support renewable energy sources.
The Renault 5 EV is expected to be a popular and affordable electric car that will appeal to both nostalgic and eco-conscious customers. It will be one of the many electric models that Renault plans to launch by 2025 as part of its strategy to become a leader in electrification.
