Renault 5 Prototype is a compact city car full of charm that propels one of Renault’s classics into the future, with a modern 100% electric touch. True to its fun and playful character, the yellow body color really stands out.
Gilles Vidal and his Design team were inspired by an emblematic model from Renault’s past known throughout the world with great success: the Renault 5. The general look of the Renault 5 Prototype is inspired by the original design.

The exhibition will include an orange TL, a black Le Car Van, a blue electric model and a champagne-colored TX.
