Renault R5

electric model at Geneva Motor Show

At the Geneva Motor Show today, Renault unveiled its highly anticipated new electric R5. Renault R5 is a model that draws direct inspiration from its 1972 bestseller.

Paying homage to the original R5 and Super 5, which collectively achieved sales of over nine million units, the new model incorporates iconic design elements such as vertical lights and vibrant colors.

Battery: 52kWh Range: 400 km


The company also claims that R5 has a towing capacity of 500 kilos. Notably.

The R5 boasts bidirectional charging capabilities, allowing owners to sell their battery’s energy back to the grid. 

The Envision battery pack, facilitating this functionality, will initially be imported until the completion of Envision’s gigafactory in northern France, expected to commence production in 2025.

Renault stands as the sole major European automaker participating in this year’s Geneva show, marking a significant return since the pre-pandemic year of 2019.
