The 2025 Alpine GT X-Over EV Chassis-Testing-Mule Caught Playing In The Snow

The 2025 Alpine GT X-Over EV Chassis-Testing-Mule Caught Playing In The Snow

The first from the three electric models Alpine has planned for the future is

Back in 2021, Alpine announced that after only four years on the market the A110 sports car will be discontinued, and that, for the future, the brand will mostly focus on electric cars. The first teaser image, revealed at the same time with the announcement revealed that Alpine is working on three different electric cars: a small hatchback, a compact crossover, and a sports car.

The electric crossover will be called Alpine GT X-Over, and it seems that it has already begun testing. Our spy photographers caught an experimental vehicle based on a heavily modified Dacia Duster body out for some testing session around the Arctic Circle.

The Renault MeganeE Could Strengthen Renaults Electric Foothold in Europe

The Renault MeganeE Could Strengthen Renaults Electric Foothold in Europe

The Renault MeganeE will be the company’s largest electric car to date, and a sign of bigger things to come

Renault recently revealed the 5 Prototype – the car that will eventually revive the Renault 5 name. Before that, however, Renault revealed the Megane eVision concept, which not only served as a visual representation of the company’s future plans but as a basis for the new prototype that you see here: The Renault Megane E-Tech or Renault MeagneE for short. It’s not a production model just yet, but one of 30 prototypes that Renault is putting into the testing phase as it prepares for (hopefully) a 2022 launch.

Alpine Becomes An EV Brand And Something Even Bigger Is Brewing

Alpine Becomes An EV Brand And Something Even Bigger Is Brewing

Alpine and Lotus join forces to create all-electric successor for the cool A110

Rumors claiming that Renault will turn Alpine into an all-electric brand have been confirmed today. The French automaker announced that the marque most famous for the A110 sports will focus on EV vehicles for the future. Renault also released a teaser image that previews three upcoming Alpine models, a small hatchback, a compact crossover, and a brand-new sports car. All are connected to charging stations, so all three will feature battery-powered electric motors. But the French also announced that the sports car will be co-developed with Lotus.

2020 Renault Megane eVision

Renault details plans about its future EVs with the eVision prototype

Renault is outlining its EV mobility plan with a sleek-looking concept called eVision which heralds the use of a new battery pack, “one of the thinnest on the market.” The production model derived from the concept will sit on the CMF-EV platform, but it’ll take at least one year before we see it in the metal.

The German Government Is Basically Giving Away Free Electric Cars

The German Government Is Basically Giving Away Free Electric Cars

Thanks to a generous grant, German citizens can lease a Renault Zoe for two years without paying a single Euro cent

Germany is setting a new standard when it comes to encouraging people into cleaner cars and the distribution of EV grant money. The government is currently offering a €6,000 grant for the purchase of a new EV and, thanks to the way things are set up, this means you can lease a brand new Renault Zoe without paying a penny. Here’s how it works.

2020 Renault MORPHOZ concept

2020 Renault MORPHOZ concept

The Morphoz Concept represents a future where cars transform and what’s yours isn’t always yours

Renault, like all other automakers, were forced to skip the Geneva Motor Show, but that sure didn’t stop it from unveiling what will probably be written in history as the weirdest futuristic concept of 2020. The Morphoz is, essentially, a vehicle that can transform based on range need, from a shorter, city car to a longer travel car. It sounds like the Morphoz will be a city car by default and would require you to stop by a station and swap to a larger battery if you plan to take a longer trip. The batteries, whether in the car or not, will be used to power infrastructure when not in use. I tend to speak too soon about a lot of things, but I’m going to come right out and say that this thing will never see production, but it could represent the future of automobiles, so here’s what you need to know about it.

2020 Renault ZOE EV has sharper looks, more range and two motor options

2020 Renault ZOE EV has sharper looks, more range and two motor options

Renault has cranked up the design aggression meter up to eleven on the 2020 ZOE and its interior is finally pleasant

Our readers from North America may not really be familiar with the Renault Zoe, but it is actually the best selling all-electric vehicle in Europe, so the fact that a new one has been launched is a pretty big deal. It’s definitely an evolution of the old car and not a dramatic, revolution, but it addresses some key concerns people had with it in the past in order to make it even more enticing for city types who don’t want a small EV.

The 2020 Renault ZOE has freshened up exterior design, a much improved interior (it sorely needed), a battery pack has 30 percent extra capacity over the old one and new tech that was not available on the old ZOE. And having improved the car in all these areas, Renault has a chance of staying on top of EV sales in Europe, even though there are far more rivals out now than there were when the ZOE debuted, back in 2012.

The 2020 Renault K-ZE EV Showed up in Shanghai Ready for Production

The 2020 Renault K-ZE EV Showed up in Shanghai Ready for Production

Renault’s brand-new EV is a tiny crossover

Six months after it made its debut as a concept car at the 2018 Paris Motor Show, the Renault K-ZE broke cover in production form at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show. The tiny electric crossover was designed in China as part of the eGT New Energy Automotive Co. Ltd. joint venture between the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance and local carmaker Dongfeng.

2018 Renault K-ZE

2018 Renault K-ZE

Is this the electrified future?

Renault is previewing its future mini electric crossover with the K-ZE concept revealed at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. Taking a closer look at the K-ZE, it becomes immediately apparent that it is, in fact, just a dressed up Kwid (which Renault already sells in emerging markets) which has had its internal combustion powertrain swapped out for a full-electric one.

The future electric crossover will look much closer to this concept, than it will to the current Kwid, although it will maintain its basic body shape. What will set it apart visually more significantly are the new, redesigned front and rear fascias, as well as various details around the exterior. It also promises to offer “class leading” range for a vehicle in its size-bracket.

The Future of Renault Lies in this KWID-Based Electric Crossover Concept from the Paris Motor Show

The Future of Renault Lies in this KWID-Based Electric Crossover Concept from the Paris Motor Show

Renault enters the fray with a small crossover for the masses

Renault premiered the grand stage with an all-electric crossover concept called K-ZE. It will eventually head to the production line and reach the masses next year. The concept looks funky, and the production version may not be very different from the concept. Given the segment Renault has slotted it in, the car will most likely fetch big sales numbers.

The Renault EZ-Ultimo Takes Another Futuristic Approach to Driverless Mobility

The Renault EZ-Ultimo Takes Another Futuristic Approach to Driverless Mobility

The luxury limo of tomorrow is surprisingly tasteful

Renault completes the EZ line of prototypes that envision an autonomous future with the EZ Ultimo, a luxurious full-size sedan with outlandish styling for the VIPs of tomorrow.

It’s long, sleek, with a gold-and-black sci-fi bodywork and stands as Renault’s view on luxury travel in the future. The chauffeur of the EZ Ultimo, however, isn’t a person, but rather Level 4 autonomous system. It’s a change of pace for Renault whose previous two EZ concepts were rather more mundane: the compact EZ Go, a futuristic taxi, and the EZ Pro light delivery truck.
