Iconic Renault 5 Turbo set to return as an electric car!



As part of Renault’s new strategic plan called the Renaulution which will take place in the next five years, the company has introduced the Renault 5 Prototype. It’s a throwback to the old Renault 5 Turbo with a modern twist, as it will return as an electric car.

14 models will be launched by 2025 (seven electric and seven C/D segment vehicles) and among them is the Renault 5 Prototype which will surely be welcomed seeing how well the new Honda e has been received. The company is also expecting its higher end models to make up 40% of its sales by the same year.

Renault is referring to it as a “cute, pin-sized, city car taking one of Renault’s timeless success to the future with a modern, 100% electric twist”.

Only several details of the prototype was revealed; it will feature aero flaps on the rear lights, with the fog lamps in the bumper doubling up as daytime running lights – like the new Mitsubishi Xpander in Malaysia.

In paying tribute to the original car, the number 5 is featured by the doors, tailgate and even front fog lamp housing.
