Renault Fuego Concept Just Happens to Resemble the i8

Concepts

Reviving the 80s moniker with an "advanced hybrid propulsion system."

The Renault FuegoDesign Concept project by Idecore design studio has been in the works for quite a while. The name Fuegorevives a Renault sports coupe from the 1980s, and it comes with four doors,including two rear suicide openings. The 2+2 coupe is powered by what Idecore calls an “advancedhybrid propulsion system,” which includes a 95 horsepower electric motor and a1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine, good for 160 hp and a 255 combined horsepowertotal.

What sets the Idecore project apart is the four operating modesoffered by this powertrain formation: Hybrid, Full-electric, Sport and Ice,which all work simultaneously on the suspension, transmission and motors. Asfor its design, the firm has apparently independently developed the look,though we really can’t help but see the BMW i8 in every element of its design.
