The Renault 4Ever Trophy There are design touches to the concept car, but underneath it all it’s clear what we can expect from the production model in 2025.

The famous Renault 4 badge returns after a 30-year hiatus.

Reflecting the times, this new version of the affordable and durable icon – sales eight million in 100 countries – will be a B-segment electric SUV.

At only 4160mm long, the Renault 4 concept is about the same size as a car Volkswagen T-Cross. The body shape suggests that the car will indeed have small front and rear overhangs and plenty of ground clearance.

By mid-decade, it will compete in Europe and beyond with The upcoming trio of light electric SUVs from the Volkswagen Grouprevival Jeep Avenger EV and Aceman mini EVs.

It will sit beside those who are reincarnated 2024 Renault 5Another nod to one of the company’s biggest hits.

“Renault 4 is a legend. And legends never die! The R4 is a vehicle that everyone can love, and today we wanted to rediscover this universal size through a modern and electric reinterpretation,” said the company CEO Luca de Meo. .

Style ties to the OG Renault 4 include the silhouette with its rear C-pillar. 4Ever Trophy brings a new twist on the horizontal grille with integrated headlights, now LED Matrix lights.

It also uses side cameras instead of side mirrors, like Genesis GV60.

Some of the wild elements of the concept are the bright red roof straps, suspension springs, and wheel emblems; hollow bonnet with gas-forming cutouts; overhead spare tire, shovel and board; and large 19 inch wheels.

Its off-road stunts pay homage to the 4L Trophy desert humane rally: each wheel has a display compressor that can be used to adjust your tire pressure for suitable for sandy terrain.

Like the Renault 5, the reincarnation 4 will be produced using the CMF-BEV platform of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, which also underpins the next generation. Nissan Micra. All vehicles using the CMF-BEV will be built at the ElectriCity center in northern France.

Renault added that the market positioning of the future Renault 5 and Renault 4 “will be the same as that of the Clio and Captur”.

Although there are no details about the powertrain yet, Renault last week details 5’s new ‘ePT-100kW’ synchronous motor with wound rotor – and no rare earth materials – will generate 100kW of power. Expect this to be done.

This new electric motor is an evolution of the more powerful ‘ePT-160kW’ electric motor used in Renault Megane E-Tech Electric.

The battery is expected to feature nickel-manganese-cobalt chemistry (NMC) and the CMF-BEV platform will provide a range of up to 400km according to the WLTP test.

Reports have suggested that the Renault 4 EV will enter production in 2025.

While the Renault 4 and 5 EVs on the road are still a few years away, it is understood both are on the card for Australia.
