Keep up to date with us with the evoltuion of the exciting new model.
More modern and electric than ever...
The Renault brand has entered a new era by launching its own “New Wave”. It brings a breath of modernity to the European automobile by becoming a mark of technology, service and energy.
Presented in January 2021, Renault 5 E-Tech electric Prototype demonstrates
Renault's desire to democratize the electric car in Europe, with a modern
approach to the popular car.
Renault 5 Prototype is a compact city car full of charm, which propels one of Renault's icons into the future in a 100% electric version. It keeps its fun and mischievous side, with a very "pop" yellow bodywork, its main lines of the original R5 design with a modern approach: the finishes and materials chosen are inspired by electronics, furniture, and sport.
To be continued in 2024...
A brand’s soul is born of its legacy. To pay homage to such heritage and reignite the spirit of times gone by, a brand must stay true to its origins and seek inspiration from within. This is the role that has fallen upon the Renault 5 Prototype. It will showcase how Renault is set to make electric cars widely accessible throughout Europe with a modern take on a popular yet essential car much like its dashing ancestor did back in its heyday.
Renault 5 Prototype is a compact city car full of charm that propels one of Renault’s timeless favourites into the future, with a modern all-electric touch. True to its fun and playful character, the yellow body colour really pops.

Gilles Vidal and his Design team were inspired by emblematic model of Renault's past that is known around the world with much acclaim: the Renault 5. The general look of the Renault 5 Prototype draws on the original design. Yet the modern approach is visible in the car’s forms, but also in the selected trim and materials that are inspired by the worlds of electronics, furniture, and sport.
The CMF-B EV platform out for its first spin...
Used for the first time on the future electric Renault 5, the new CMF-B EV platform will have to take on its position as the most competitive in its segment, while offering bestin-class performance. The platform has therefore taken 70% of the parts featured on the CMF-B platform used for Clio and Captur. Compared to ZOE, the CMF-B EV platform is 30% cheaper to manufacture.
The new modular platform is easier to make, develop, and optimize the performance of next-generation B-segment electric vehicles. The advantages of the new design mean that a new generation of electric vehicles can be created, with adjustable tracks and wheelbase to allow for different body types and styles. Like the Megane E-Tech electric, the future electric Renault 5 will be the benchmark for its segment in terms of driving pleasure. The optimized chassis with a multi-link rear axle (usually reserved for more prestige segments) and a lower centre of gravity with batteries installed under the floor will ensure greater dynamic performance.
The new engine and batteries also put through their paces...
The CMF-B EV platform engine compartment is more compact because the parts used for an electric motor are smaller than those used on an internal combustion engine.
The electric motor on the future electric Renault 5 will be based on the tried-and-tested electrically excited synchronous motor used primarily on the ZOE and Megane E-Tech electric. Not only does it boast better output than a permanent-magnet motor, but it also requires no rare-earth metals meaning that large-scale production costs and the environmental impact are both lower.
- the DC/DC converter that converts the battery’s 400V into 12V.
- the battery charger
- the accessory box that manages power distribution
By pooling together the different functions performed by these three components in a single box, the engine is smaller and lighter. Roughly 20kg lighter than that used for the ZOE, the future electric Renault 5 engine will be more enjoyable and dynamic to drive than its predecessor.
The new battery pack will also help give the vehicle the competitive edge sought after by Renault. The switch from the 12 modules seen on the ZOE battery to 4 large modulesmeans the architecture is simpler and 15kg lighter. Equipped with a single layer of modules, the battery pack is a perfect fit for the new platform. The future electric Renault 5 will need less space to transport more kWh.
Special care has also been
taken to house the battery pack inside the platform for added
protection. Its placement will provide added rigidity to the under body,
thereby also improving the acoustics and driving pleasure.
