Renault is gearing up to increase its electric model drive. It will unveil a new electric SUV concept and a production version of the Dacia Spring. The latter supposedly being Europe’s most affordable electric vehicle.
While few details have been released many believe it will borrow heavily from the Morphoz concept, of course with more production details.
The Morphoz was famous for its so-called “shape-shifting” functions. For example, its ability to shift from 4400mm long in “city mode” to being 4800mm long in “travel mode.” While features like this aren’t likely to be road ready anytime soon the purpose of the Morphoz was to show how flexible a vehicle could be—that is one created by the Renault Mitsubishi Nissan Alliance’s new CMF-EV platform. The new concept is assuredly based on this.
The new SUV was described as Kadjar sized. Its features will compete with other mainstream EV’s like the Skoda Enyag or Kia e-Niro. This is expected to be a new direction in style for Renault. They are expected to use the less radical style elements of the Morphoz.
A final word, it has been confirmed that the Renault emblem will be illuminated on the new vehicle—a first for Renault.
