The Renault Trezor Concept Pleases Our Eyes in Paris

Concepts are known for being futuristic, and the Trezor is exactly that.

Renault’s Trezor Concept is so futuristic that it looks almost otherworldly. This super smooth car offers all the latest innovations in interior experience from Renault, all wrapped up in an all-electric Grand Tourer. The two-seater coupe embodies the new design philosophy that Renault introduced on its DeZir concept back in 2010, a car that inspired the lines on the Clio model released in 2012. It's the first concept to revisit a ‘petal’ of the Renault ‘Life Flower’ design strategy, this one being for Love.

“The Renault range has now been completely renewed and upgraded with a spectrum of complementary models, each one of which has its own assertive identity. With the Trezor, we have pursued this renewal by introducing a new lifecycle sequence. This concept car is the fruit of a freedom of expression and prepares the way for the trends we are likely to see in our upcoming vehicles. These trends fall into two categories: French Design and Easy Life.” says Laurens van den Acker, Senior VP of Corporate Design. Inside the Trezor there's a strong focus on evolving interior design with the accent on driving pleasure, and the Multi-Sense system shows Renaults ambitions in autonomous technology. It's all very Star Trek like.

The all-electric powertrain links back to Renault's innovations in the FIA Formula E Championship, the motor is derived from the Renault e.dams, two-time winner of the the Formula E teams' world title. It offers up 350 hp with 280 lb-ft of torque that can propel the futuristic GT-esque car from 0-62 in less than 4 seconds. Tailor developed Continental tires are fitted to the 21 and 22-inch combination wheels, they look almost like street-legal slicks now that we've had a chance to take a closer look here at the Paris Motor Show. The Trezor has three drive modes, neutral, sport and autonomous. The latter allowing cross country trips while browsing the net or relaxing to a favorite movie. The future. It is here.
