Renault Trezor Concept detailed

Six years after the Dezir Concept, created to anticipate the design of current Renault models, the French manufacturer returns with a simmilar concept. It is called Renault Trezor and it was unveiled during this year Paris Motor Show.

Trezor, a two-seater electric coupé, embodies the new design philosophy Renault introduced on its DeZir concept in 2010 before inspiring the lines of new Clio in 2012.

With its powerful styling and Passion Red coachwork, the DeZir heralded the first stage of a design strategy founded on the cycle of life: falling in love.

The Trezor goes further, by symbolising feelings of maturity and commitment. It reflects the maturity of Renault’s designs.

And it is really important if you think that design, since 2014, has become the primary reason driving customers to purchase one of the brand’s vehicles.

Standing just 1,080mm tall, the Trezor invites occupants to straddle the side of its body as they climb in. This style of entry is a throwback to the world of classic racing cars.

The Trezor provides a dashboard made from red wood that incorporates a luggage compartment at the front of the vehicle. Made-to-measure cases are held in place by leather straps.

The seats’ rounded contours were inspired by the world of furniture design to create a plush, comfortable interior. The dashboard is the fruit of a partnership with the French firm KEIM-cycles, which is renowned for its custom wooden, high-performance cycle frames.

The Trezor makes use of the latest Ultra High Definition developments. A combination of OLED technology (Organic Light-Emitting Diode) and Corning Gorilla Glass has produced a thin, curved screen which, unlike LED displays,does not require backlighting. The result is superior contrast and colour reproduction, along with deeper shades of black with no halo effect.

The Trezor’s motor derives from the Renault e.dams, two-time winner of the Formula E Teams’ world title. With a maximum power of 350hp and peak torque of 380 Nm, it provides acceleration from stand still to 62mph in less than four seconds.

The Trezor features two batteries, each of which has its own cooling system optimised by the variable-geometry air intake incorporated in the bonnet.

The Trezor also incorporates a brake-operated energy recovery system, courtesy of the Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) technology developed for Formula E racing.
