Listen to the audio version of the article

Debut at the Geneva Motor Show for the Renault 5 E-Tech Electric. The main novelty of the Swiss event, the new electric Renault 5 represents a crucial model for the electric transition of the French group. Strongly desired by Luca de Meo, the Renault 5 E-Tech Electric built on the AmpR Small platform brings a retro style to the road but combined with one of the most interesting technical packages in the B segment. Capable of traveling up to 400 kilometers on a full tank of energy in the versions with a 52 kWh battery, will be on sale at a price of less than 25 thousand euros for the models with a 40 kWh battery and 300 kilometers of autonomy.

Renault 5 electric dimensions

The first strong point of the new electric Renault 5 is represented by its dimensions, perfect for city use but at the same time capable of ensuring noteworthy on-board space. 3.92 meters long, it is positioned between the Twingo (30 cm shorter) and the Clio (9 cm longer), it is 1.77 meters wide and has a wheelbase of 2.54 meters with reduced overhangs. An element of style comes from 18-inch wheels which are found on all versions. The 195/55 R18 tires are supplied with nut covers in the Evolution set-up and alloy wheels in the Techno and Iconic Cinq versions. For launch, the car will be available in five exterior body colors, including Pop Yellow and Pop Green. They are directly inspired by the two legendary colors of the 1970s catalogue, which collective memory associates with the Renault 5. Another strong point comes from the style, strongly inspired by the models of the past and very similar to the concepts already shown.

Lots of technology on board the new electric Renault 5, starting from the 10” digital dashboard (7” “flush” on the basic models), which presents all the information connected to driving, with the possibility of choosing between five views. Instead, the central multimedia display measures 10” in all versions. It is powered by the OpenR Link system with Google integrated into the Techno and Iconic Cinq trims. It gives access to Google Maps services, Google Assistant and many applications (50 or more depending on the countries and versions) available in the Google Play catalogue. The pop colors and exclusive textures, which in turn reflect the theme of the logo, can be customized according to the driving mode and, more generally, the driver’s mood and desires. By combining 8 colours, 2 densities and 4 textures, over 128 combinations are possible for an extremely personalized on-board experience. There is a wide range of accessories, such as the wicker baguette basket. Also new is Reno, the official Renault avatar. According to the French brand it will not just be an assistant but a “next generation humanised co-pilot capable of offering a digital experience that will completely immerse users in the world of Renault, for new driving and on-board experiences”.

New electric Renault 5, autonomy and batteries

There are two batteries available: the larger one, which will be the only one offered at the commercial launch of the vehicle, is 52 kWh, with a range of up to 400 km WLTP. The second is 40 kWh, with a range of up to 300 km WLTP. Both have NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) chemistry. The 52 kWh battery features 4 large modules in the battery compartment, compared to the 12 smaller modules found on the Megane E-Tech Electric and Zoe. This simplified architecture allows for a weight reduction of 20 kg compared to Zoe (approximately 300 kg). 46 cells are assembled in each of the 4 modules, whose unit weight is around 55 kg. The 40 kWh battery, on the other hand, is made up of just 3 large modules, gathered in the same compartment. Each of the 3 modules has, this time, 31 cells of greater thickness, weighing approximately 240 kg.
