Through its purpose, its sustainability strategy and the launch of the Renaulution strategic plan, Renault Group and its brands have embarked on a major transformation, moving from a race for volume to the creation of economic, environmental and social value, with the aim of becoming carbon neutral in Europe by 2040 and worldwide by 2050.
To help achieve these goals, Renault unveiled the world premiere of its new Scénic Vision concept-car at the ChangeNOW summit in Paris. It embodies Renault’s commitment to sustainable development and reflects the brand’s plan to decarbonize its entire lifecycle.
Renault is writing a new chapter in its history with an innovative concept-car that is both pioneering and visionary. From the outside, it foreshadows the future 100% electric family vehicle in the Renault range. Inside and technologically, it invites you to travel into another time, into a future where technologies and innovations will serve a more sustainable and environmentally friendly world.
“All our corporate commitments are not enough if we are not taking them all the way down to our vehicles. That’s why I requested the Renault teams to come up with the 1st concept-car that fully embodies our new ESG strategy and its 3 pillars: environment, safety, and inclusion. We called it Scénic Vision. Scénic, like our iconic “voiture à vivre”, and Vision because it fits people’s new expectations.” said Luca de Meo, CEO Renault Group and Renault brand.
Scénic Vision sets a new path for more sustainable, safe and inclusive mobility. Visionary and exploratory, it embodies the most advanced technological prospects for decarbonization and embodies the three pillars of Renault Group’s sustainable development strategy: environment, safety and inclusion.
- Eco-design and circular economy innovations, incorporating over 70% recycled materials, including several closed loops, and 95% recyclable, contribute directly to resource conservation.
- Its hybrid electric and hydrogen powertrain, aims to reduce downtime related to energy recharging while reducing the carbon footprint, including the battery. Renault Scénic Vision is zero emission in production and in use with a 75% smaller carbon footprint than a conventional battery electric vehicle.
- Onboard technologies offer enhanced safety for drivers and passengers, reducing the number of accidents by up to 70%. The design of this concept-car also reflects the teams’ desire to create a unique car that is accessible and suitable for everyone.
Scénic Vision concept-car is a true embodiment of Renault’s “Nouvelle Vague” and the result of a thorough design exercise and bold aesthetic choices. Its design prefigures different time horizons for the Renault range of vehicles. The exterior reveals the shapes and style of a new family model that will be marketed in 2024. Its interior design is a forward-looking study of future Renault interiors.
Its hydride electric and hydrogen powertrain, reflects Renault’s desire to find solutions for all types of use and is part of a longer-term vision, beyond 2030. This design opens the way to new perspectives, that of a world where cars and people converge towards the same values.
“Scénic Vision represents a new chapter in the history of Renault Group and for the brand. This concept prefigures the exterior design of the new Scénic 100% electric model for 2024 and the new Renault design language. The interior design, is a forward-looking study of future Renault interiors. Scénic Vision provides a suite of technologies and innovations at the service of a more sustainable mobility.” . said Gilles Vidal, VP Renault Brand, Design.
