The Renault 4 Electric is due to be launched in 2025, in 2024. It is the modern reinvention of one of the brand's classics, the legendary 4L. This new version is in line with Renault's strategy of offering an environmentally-friendly solution for drivers concerned about their ecological impact.

In terms of design, it combines heritage and modernity. It's recognizable by its lines, hexagonal grille, iconic round headlights and Y-shaped taillights. 

 

The manufacturer has already announced that two versions will be available, a classic version and an "adventure" version. This offers a variety of choices for future buyers.

 

In terms of technology, the Renault 4 Electric does not skimp on innovations: 

 

  • 9.3-inch touchscreen for infotainment,

It is inspired by the Centoventi concept car presented in 2019 and promises to carry on the model's heritage.

The design is inspired by the lines and elements of the Panda, with a contemporary approach. The car is somewhere between a crossover and an MPV, reflecting a style that is at once "cool, popular and affordable".

Technically, it will be based on the Stellantis Group's CMP platform, like its competitors the Peugeot e-208 and Opel Corsa-e. This platform will enable the model to be equipped with a combustion, hybrid and electric option. The Panda will be larger in size, increasing in length to around 4 meters.

This new generation will stand out with a brand new base called Spotlight EV, (developed in collaboration between BMW and Great Wall Motors). It will retain its iconic design, while incorporating sleeker elements such as a smaller nose and a more pronounced wheelbase. This will enable the vehicle to maintain its 3.80 m stature.

 

The Mini will be available in two versions: 

 

  • the "E" with a 184 hp engine and 40 kWh battery, 

 

  • the more powerful "SE" with 218 hp and a 54 kWh battery, capable of a range of around 390 km in the WLTP combined cycle.
