The new Renault 5 Prototype is a design canvas on which the main features of all generations of models have been beautifully gathered. Such as the front light fixtures that maintain the old “style”, while at the same time hosting the latest technology.
For this reason, the brand brought it to the Munich Fair, and placed it right next to its ancestor, with the comparison that anyone can make.
The designer said that this model is a modern tribute to this model and that it will be an economical and state-of-the-art city car. So these words were confirmed by the brand’s plan and the electric Renault 5 will see it up close in early 2022 with a price of up to 25,000 euros.
Renault’s vice-president Gilles Le Borgne said: “It will be a very affordable car that will cost between 20 and 25 thousand euros but to bring us profits at the same time, it is the biggest challenge.”
Renault plans to unveil 7 pure electric models by 2025 with the first of these being the Renault 5.
The first Renault 5 was launched in 1972, designed to fill the large gap between the Renault 4 and the Citroën 2CV in the French small car market. The car was a huge success, as until 1980, it was one of the best sellers in the world.
Its second generation, known as the Supercinq, was released in 1984 with a new look and built on a new platform. It was permanently replaced by the Clio, which was released in 1990.
