Zapping Autonews Green What new car will LPG buy in 2022?

After the R5, it’s time for another cult Losange model to be reinterpreted as a concept car. On the occasion of the Paris Motor Show 2022, Renault presents the Renault 4EVER Trophy, a style study that takes the form of a modern, electric version of the Renault 4. What is usually called the 4L thus becomes a small SUV, which pays homage to the 4L Trophy solidarity raid.

Whoever says SUV, necessarily says it looks a little muscular. The Renault 4EVER Trophy is no exception and adopts an imposing silhouette, even if Renault says it wanted to maintain a connection with the 4L. We thus recognize the silhouette of the famous small car, especially at the level of the rear face. Equipped with guards, the wheel arches are particularly wide. A sign that the car is capable of getting off the beaten track, with its overhang of more than 20 centimeters.

On the front of the concept car, the horizontal grille is particularly elaborate. There are round Matrix LED lights, which surround an illuminated Renault logo. The hood is pierced by an air inlet designed to optimize “the operation of the radiator”. The taillights adopt a capsule-shaped pattern, a nod to the original 4L. The Renault 4EVER Trophy sports a silver body color with pink inserts.

The car is supported by 19-inch rims, mounted on wheels that incorporate compressors so that tire pressure can be regulated from the cabin. It is also equipped with a carbon trunk, where there is a spare wheel. A shovel and sand boards are stored on top of the tailgate. The Renault 4EVER Trophy is 4.06 meters long, 2.1 meters wide and 1.9 meters high. Its wheelbase reaches 2.57 meters.

100% electric, this Renault 4EVER Trophy features a 100 kW or 140 horsepower wound rotor motor. The French manufacturer gives little information in the technical sheet of its concept car, but indicates that the car is based on the same CMF-BEV platform as the future electric Renault 5. The concept car’s lithium-ion battery pack has a capacity of 42 kWh.

According to the manufacturer, this Renault 4EVER Trophy should no longer be a simple concept car. The car heralds a future electric SUV that Renault plans to market in 2025. In terms of positioning, it should be to the electric Renault 5 what the Captur is to the Clio. The future SUV prefigured by the 4EVER Trophy concept will, in any case, be manufactured in France, within the ElectriCity center located in the north of the country.

The Renault 4EVER Trophy concept car is on public display at the Paris Motor Show from 17 to 23 October 2022 at the Paris Expo exhibition center at Porte de Versailles in Paris.
