Design Renault 5 E-Tech electric

Take the headlights. They make the front end instantly recognizable. Not only is the shape distinctive, but also the central lens reminiscent of the pupil of the eye. This is a reference to the ads from 1972, with “The Adventures of Supercar,” just so you know. Wide wheel arches and corner-mounted, vertical taillights are other features of the model.

Charge status indicator

The air intake on the hood of the classic Renault 5 has been omitted from the new Renault 5 E-Tech electric. In its place is a charge status indicator, whose lights form a “5” when the battery is fully charged. The indicator is a playful element, as well as a functional one. This allows the charging status to be read at a glance, even for bystanders.
