Belated: Renault 5 E-Tech Electric goes official, competitively priced at around EUR 25,000

6 March 2024, 10:08:22

Belated: Renault 5 E-Tech Electric goes official, competitively priced at around EUR 25,000Renault 5 E-Tech electric is the first vehicle to be designed entirely on AmpR Small, the new Ampere platform dedicated to B-segment electric vehicles. This makes it a unique vehicle with real competitive advantages including a flat floor, long wheelbase (2.54m), optimised interior space and boot capacity (326 litres), lower centre of gravity and reduced weight (less than 1,500 kg). The AmpR Small platform has also brought economies of scale in many areas without compromising on the electrical components or technologies that are useful to customers.

Renault 5 E-Tech electric introduces a new AC bidirectional charger compatible with V2L (vehicle-to-load) and V2G (vehicle-to-grid) technologies. This pioneering system is set to become widely used. It will make the vehicle a real player in the energy ecosystem through the services of Mobilize, feeding carbon-free electricity back into the grid. As a result, users will enjoy significant savings on their electricity bills.

Under the bonnet, the motor of Renault 5 E-Tech electric is more compact than the motors on Megane E-Tech electric and Scenic E-Tech electric, on which it is based. It remains faithful to Renault's preferred wound rotor synchronous technology. As it has no permanent magnets, it uses no rare earths, thereby reducing its environmental impact. Building on the experience of its predecessors in terms of durability, the motor will be available with three power ratings: 110, 90 and 70 kW.

Renault 5 E-Tech electric is a versatile car, at home in the city or on the open road, thanks to its 11 kW AC charger, its 80 or 100 kW DC charger and its battery up to 52 kWh giving it a range of up to 400 km WLTP. A rarity in the electric city car segment, it can even tow a trailer, with a towing capacity of 500 kg.

Renault 5 E-Tech electric features the latest generation OpenR Link system with Google built-in, along with over 50 apps and practical services such as integrating electric recharging in the planned journey. Alongside the connected services of Google, Renault 5 E-Tech electric is debuting Reno, the official Renault avatar, an intelligent, helpful and endearing travel companion.

Sound comfort is optimised with the patented smart cocoon soundproofing system and an acoustic windscreen, a feature borrowed from further up the market. For thermal comfort, an economical heat pump saves battery energy.

At the cutting edge of safety, Renault 5 E-Tech electric features driving aids (ADAS) borrowed from further up the market, including intelligent adaptive cruise control that reads the road, and Active Driver Assist, a level 2 automated driving technology. It also includes innovative technologies to make the work of rescue services easier in the event of an accident (Fireman Access, Pyroswitch and QRescue). The new dynamic braking system halves the reaction time for automatic braking. Finally, the Safety Coach supports the driver in reducing the risk of accidents.

Renault Group is committed to producing Renault 5 E-Tech electric – and its battery – in France from summer 2025. Vehicles and batteries will be assembled at the Douai plant, which was one of the production sites for the original Renault 5. The motor (electric machine, reduction gear, power electronics) will be manufactured at Cléon and the modules produced by the Douai Gigafactory (Envision AESC partnership) from summer 2025. By 2030, the carbon footprint of the modules will be 35% smaller than for ZOE. Renault 5 E-Tech electric will be built in northern France, using a compact ecosystem of suppliers located within a 300 km radius of the ElectriCity complex.
