Lately, the automotive world has witnessed the unveiling of many dream car concepts. The move has created an upbeat feeling on the future of electric mobility. But, all the credit goes back to the Renault Trezor Concept, the car that marked a fresh beginning of concept cars.
The initially revealing was at the Paris Motor Show in 2016. Still, in the same year, it won an award, the Festival Automobile International’s Most Beautiful Concept Car. Without a doubt, the model explores some exciting future full of styling and design possibilities.
The Trezor succeeds in the 2010 DeZir Concept, which marked the introduction of creative styling in most recent Renault models. Unlike DeZir, the expectation then was that the Trezor would become a commercial unit by 2020. But, what is certain is that the French automaker will imbed DNA designs of Trezor into future models.
Performance and Sportiness of a Dream Car Concept
The sportiness adapted by Trezor is that of a fast car. From the proportion to pushing the cabin far back only illustrate what kind of internal combustion to expect. Besides being extended, the Trezor is low, broad, and measures 42.5 inches tall. While the sleek design contributes to the drag coefficient of 0.22, making it the most efficient aerodynamic car in the world.
Under the long hood, you find an electric motor powertrain capable of generating 260kw(350hp) and 380 Nm of torque. The output is enough to get the Trezor from zero to 100kmh within four seconds. Further, the French automaker added a regenerative braking system found on Renault Formula E race cars.
Renault did not stop there; they also integrated Trezor with RESS, commonly found on their Formula E racing counterpart. The reusable energy storage system enables the fast car to recover power when braking, which means it goes more miles before recharging.
Above all, the dream car comes with three driving styles. They include neutral, efficient for normal driving, the sport, for those moments you’re looking to have a bit of fun. The last one is autonomous. Yes, the car can drive itself freely.
All the driving styles are found and chosen from the Renault Multi-Sense system. Also, the system allows you to alter the cabin’s lighting.
Styling and Imaginative Designs of Renault
The Trezor Concept features famous redesigns that you should expect in future Renault cars. For example, it’s warm, simple, and has beautiful lines. Also, it possesses a defined face, and a signature lighting, the C-shaped LED.
For enhancing battery cooling, the bonnet has honeycombed air inlets. On the rear section, the car comes with a cover that changes form whenever gliding into the arches of the rear wheel curves. The French automaker calls it parometric design.
Imagine a two-seater luxury car with no doors. Yes, no actual entries, meaning the driver and passenger hop in after the upper part opens up. The red cabin is luxurious and there is a large compartment incorporated in the red wooden dashboard.
Other outstanding elements are the sleek lines highlighting the dashboard, an enormous touch screen, and a rectangular steering wheel also with a touch screen. The headrest is terrific; it automatically moves back for more driving comfort.
The concept car, Trezor is beautiful, and wow’s eyes like it did at the Geneva Motor Show. Its designs are impressive, wild, and dazzling for a car yet to undergo production. However, the styling and technology are a welcome to future models carrying the Renault vision and automotive passion.
Meanwhile, Trezor is just but a concept car, and for now, it remains a dream car. But the elements will leave on; for instance, the manufacturer plans to use the autonomous system on all models beginning in 2020.
