Renault: the electric 4L will be a strong build

The new 4L “will be the first SUV of 100 % electric segment B of Renault”, exhibits Laure Grégoire, product manager. The distribution of roles with the R5 in 2025 will be the same as that which exists today between Captur and the Clio, she specifies. It will therefore be “significantly larger” than the R5 (with a length greater than 4 meters), and “significantly more expensive”, without more precision at this stage.

Renault 4L: 5 things to know about the final model expected in 2025

The future electrical Renault 4L is currently preparing, behind the scenes. What do we already know about it about style and technologies ?

Wiser, it will be similar to an urban SUV similar to the captur in template.

The new 4L will inherit many stylistic elements from the original model.

The dashboard of this concept car should largely inspire the cockpit of future R4 and R5 that both will be shared, again for the sake of profitability.

For the sake of economy, the future R4 and will rest on the same platform, from the Clio.

Unveiled at the Paris World Cup, last October, he announced the new 4L, promised for 2025.

The final model, of course, will give up the artifices of adventurers, and in particular the imposing ground clearance of the study.

The Paris Motor Show held in October was an opportunity for Renault to reaffirm its penchant for nostalgia, the diamond having already acted the return of the R5 for 2024. During the Paris Salon, the 4th grade concept car followed by the step, with the promise of a 4L revival, by 2025. Based on this study, Auto-Moto imagined what the definitive model could look like and reveals an exclusive illustration, devoid of artifices specific to the showcar. This is an opportunity to take stock of the information already known about this new model.

An electric Renault 4L larger than the R5

In the collective imagination, many people think that the original R5, by its surname, was more generous than the 4L in terms of temporary. That nenni. Exclusively offered in 5 doors, the R4 had to display a sufficiently imposing build (3.61 m long) to honor its functionality, where the R5 (3.52 m) asserted itself more like a urban snobinard. It is therefore logically that the future Renault 4 will be more lifetime than the Renault 5. While the latter will evolve around 4 meters long, as a pure city dweller, the 4L of modern times will play rather in the course of urban SUVs of the Captur type, to lie down on approximately 4.16 m.

A new, powerful 4L for the sake of versatility

The technical sheet of the future Renault 4L should remain faithful to that announced by the 4ther concept car which reports a 42 kWh battery capable of supplying an electric motor delivering 100 kW, or about 140 hp. A level of power essential to that which intends to play the role of mouse of cities as well as fields, with a level of autonomy which should amount to at least 400 km, see more according to the dazzling progress observed in the field electric. A simple Peugeot E-208 being capable of rallying 400 km to date, it would not be surprising that the 4L cuvée 2025 pursues this measure at 450 or even 500 km. Unless Renault’s thinking heads favor do not favor the price variable by focusing on a more modest battery in capacity.

A simple clio platform redesigned for the R4

At a time when many car manufacturers optimize 100% electric rolling through the development of expensive base dedicated to it, the ex-Regie will retain a monthly technical base evolve, once again for concern to control costs. A multi-energy strategy that was not won, at first glance, but which seems to smile at small size vehicles. Again, the Peugeot E-208 must reinforce the actors of the segment in this path, the small electric lioness having simply taken advantage of the adaptation of a thermal platform to achieve its ends. It is in this spirit that the new 4L will inherit a revised and corrected base of the current Clio (CMF-B), just like the R5 in the future.

An interior environment close to the R5

If no information has filtered when the design of the dashboard of the future 4L, the 4th grade concept that has not revealed a cabin, it is rumored that the serial model will share its cockpit with that of the Renault 5, Again to minimize the costs. Regarding his physiognomy, another rumor wants her design will be inspired by that sketched by the Renault 5 Turbo 3rd concept, unveiled last August on the occasion of the Chantilly elegance competition. The impressive baby unveiled a relatively stripped dashboard composed of several digital modules, housed behind the steering wheel, to echo the dashboard of the original R5.

The asset of made in France

cock-a-doodle Doo ! Those models will be assembled in France, more particularly in the North, around the new Renault Electricity pole, shared between Douai which will manufacture the Renault 5, when Maubeuge is responsible for the Renault 5. The ambition is to manufacture 500 00 new vehicles in this new ecosystem, from 2025, the largest unit in Europe, also including Renault Kangoo as well as the Future Nissan Micra Electric. Hopefully the component crisis does not come to find this organization, in the long term.

Renault: the electric 4L will be a strong build

The diamond manufacturer unveiled at the opening of the Auto World Cup a concept because which prepares the field for the Renaissance of the Renault 4. More imposing than its grandmother, the 100 % electric SUV will be as expensive than the future R5.

Resuscitate an automotive icon is to take the risk of seeing a part of the public cry out in betrayal if the new model moves too much from the original. The question arises at Renault, whose future electric 4L will have a significantly more pronounced build than its ancestor. The manufacturer therefore chose to prepare the field, by revealing Monday at the Mondial de l’Auto a concept Car which must familiarize the barge with the design of the vehicle expected in 2025.

Rectangular grille and front headlights all in round, rear capsal -shaped lights, rear trapezoid side windows with rounded corners … The “4th Trophy” makes stylistic references supported at 4L of original original. But his measurements which have much to do with the low ground imprint that characterized it. At 4.16 meters, it displays a length of half a meter, and it is also 50 centimeters wider.

A overlayed adventurer

The vehicle also celebrating 25 years of the humanitarian raid 4L Trophy, this muscular and adventurer aspect is overplayed, especially in terms of ground clearance and imposing black protections on the bottom of the body, which will not be kept. The message is clear, however: the new Renault 4 will not be the slightly frail car, but a SUV – a bit like the mini update by BMW.

The diamond brand justifies this transformation by recalling that the grandfather was comfortable in the countryside as in the city. More prosaically, it is a question of positioning the future model on a type of body which represents half of the market today, while avoiding cannibalization with the future electric R5, positioned, it, on the city niche.

Form a complementary duo with the R5

The new 4L “will be the first SUV of 100 % electric segment B of Renault”, exhibits Laure Grégoire, product manager. The distribution of roles with the R5 in 2025 will be the same as that which exists today between Captur and the Clio, she specifies. It will therefore be “significantly larger” than the R5 (with a length greater than 4 meters), and “significantly more expensive”, without more precision at this stage.

The two models will share the CMF-BEV platform, designed by the Renault-Nissan Alliance to offer affordable electric vehicles. The reuse of elements used since 2013 for the ZOE platform will allow a reduction in manufacturing costs of 30 % compared to it, says Laure Grégoire.

After this concept because, Renault reserves two years to reveal the lines of the future 4L, even if the final design is almost arrested. The manufacturer has already announced that the car would be assembled within its Electricity pole, and more precisely on the assembly line of Maubeuge, alongside the brand new electric Kangoo, also presented at the Motor Show.
