Renault has unveiled today the first details on the Frendzy concept car set to make its official debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show this September. It is a fully electric concept with an asymmetrically body, that features some of the most impressive innovations of the moment: BlackBerry® PlayBook™ controls 37-inch digital screen on sliding rear door, unique "sound signatures" inside and out, fabric roof adapts to shape of bulky objects, magnetic fixings allow loads to be secured to floor, slate board in rear cabin for children to sketch on, touch-sensitive pad slides out from driver’s seat for rear passenger movie watching or gaming, two color ambient lighting settings to differentiate family and work time.

The concept is powered by an electric motor that delivers a total of 60 HP and a peak torque of 166 lbs-ft and is mated to a direct drive tranmission with reverse. The concept can hit a top speed of 80 mph.

Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President, Design Renault: "Frendzy is the fourth vehicle to illustrate Renault’s new design strategy, a series which started with DeZir. It takes an original and innovative stance on the world of light commercial vehicles - a key part of Renault’s activities".

I love the newest edition of Renault Concept Frendzy with the concept of electricity. The interior provides comfort to the driver and the passengers. The concept is amazing, and this is really a work of art.

If your planning to established a business or you’re already in the biz, you better have this chance to grab this amazing Frendzy. It’s innovative and original. The business would be a huge click if this is one of the vehicles you are using to reach recipients.

I love the interior of this one. It looks very luxurious and fun and as for the exterior appearance of it, I must say that it is more looked like a company car, and it is so strange on that design.

It is rather looked like a cartoon car for me, and I would bet Renault really don’t have any plan to put this one on the market, but I’m quite curious on what will be the interior of this one will look like.

Very styled and high-end car, having this surely make you the apple of the eye of everyone. Very unique and outstanding car ever made. The materials and this done well from roof, to exterior, wheels with perfect interior scenery.

All that I can say is I don’t like its concept aside from its name, which is cool. These electric cars are really an awful car having performance of 80 MPH. By the way, the upcoming auto show is not that famous.
