Renault presented at the Frankfurt Auto Show the Symbioz prototype that relies on an electric propulsion system and integrates autonomous functions.
The French concept represents Renault’s vision of how cars will look like in 2030 when they will be largely electric and autonomous.
The Renault Symbioz is 4.7 meters long, 1.98 meters wide and 1.35 meters tall. The electric concept has a maximum output of 500 kW and a torque of 660 Nm. Acceleration from 0 to100 km/h is achieved in less than 6 seconds as previously stated.
The range is 500 kilometers under highway conditions and the 72kW batteries charge at 80 percent of capacity in just 20 minutes.
Renault developed the Symbioz to provide a common home and car charging platform. Kilowatts-hours are shared via the intelligent network by the vehicle and the home.
In the scenario set by Renault, Symbioz enters in the intelligent house realm, being virtually a modular room, offering a mobile and connected space. The concept is Renault’s vision that the car is an extension of the house even during a journey.
A generous space is attributed to the rear-wheel drive configuration, with two electric motors located on the rear axle and floor-mounted batteries. The board retracts and the front seats pivot, helping the occupants detach themselves from the environment.
The car can detect the presence of passengers, which will give them seat settings, music and entertainment options according to their preferences.
