Along the spectrum of electric cars both conceptualized and realized, certain models stand out.
Which brings us to the Trezor concept that Renault just unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, a two-seat electric coupe which, for our money, is now the clubhouse leader for pin-up potential.
With a design based on the concepts of authenticity and modernity, the Trezor features warm lines, carbon bodywork with contrasting surface finishes, red glazing, fiber-optic laser lighting, a metallic finish and a one-piece clamshell roof that’s supposed to lift like the lid of a jewelry box.
The interior of the car is decked out with high-end touches like dashboard made of red wood with a touchscreen display, a front-of-the-vehicle luggage compartment and red leather seats.
The 350-HP Trezor can do 0-62 thanks in under four seconds thanks to its Formula E-inspired motor and also has a Rechargeable Energy Storage System that saves power while braking.
“This concept car is the fruit of a freedom of expression and prepares the way for the trends we are likely to see in our upcoming vehicles,” according to Renault. “These trends fall into two categories: Easy Life and French Design.”
This calls for a little “Zou Bisou Bisou.”
