The Renault 5 EV due on sale by 2025.
Renault has revealed that the iconic 5 hatchback is to be revived as the keystone of an electric transformation from the brand that will see seven fully electric Renaults launched by 2025.
Renault labels the new 5 iconic hatchback here as a prototype rather than a concept, which means the production version likely will not stray away from this retro tastic design. That red stripe is likely a nod to the hot hatch version dubbed Renault 5 GT Turbo back in the day, which may hint its modern day EV counterpart will spawn a performance derivative.
The new Renault 5 will be a five door electric supermini with the rear doors neatly integrated into the design and hidden door handles in the C-pillar. Huge flared wheel arches are a nod to the more extreme Turbo I and II variants of the original Renault 5 homologated for world rallying.
No interior shots have been revealed, but the cabin appears to be a minimalist environment, with only a transparent digital instrument panel visible on top of the dashboard.
The company is also setting up the Mobilize sub-brand with four EV a tiny Twizy like model, the Dacia Spring, Jiangling Renault GSE and a cargo van.
