When thinking about all-electric automobiles, one would hardly expect to see one as sleek and sporty as Renault’s Trezor ($NA) concept car. Design director Laurens van den Acker has created a truly spectacular look for this huge, two seat electric coupe. With Renault being Europe’s top selling electric vehicle maker, the Trezor’s 260 kW, 350bhp engine is a proven workhorse.
Building up 282 torques of electric power, the Trezor can still hit 0-62 mph in less than four seconds by using the same rechargeable energy storage system as the Formula E. At 4.7 meters (15.42 ft) long and 2.1 meters (6.89 feet) wide by just over 1 meter (40″) tall, the Trezor is a commanding presence.
The bonnet (which hinges forward and up to access the interior) is covered in a honeycomb-hexagonal pattern that allows air cooling of the batteries. Along with the lightweight aluminum frame, there is also, surprisingly, a lot of wood in the structural core of this amazing blend of old-fashioned luxury and high tech automation.
