unusual hybrid

called scenic vision, the vehicle is a hybrid, but not in the usual sense. A 215hp electric motor and 40kW battery are combined with a 16kW hydrogen fuel cell.

The automaker explains that by combining electric and hydrogen power, the battery could run twice as light while providing the same range. As for the mileage, Renault said “if the hydrogen charging station network is large enough”, the Scenic Vision can manage up to 800 km on a single charge.

You can see it in action in the video below.

safety and technology

SUVs have all the other features.

In terms of safety, the EV is said to have a front-facing camera system that improves the driver’s visibility by up to 24%.

There is also a risk assessment function in the integrated ADAS that can detect risky behavior and “encourage defensive driving practices”.

Inside, a large display under the windshield and seven smaller displays dominate the cabin. Five provide information to the driver and two act as camera mirrors. Notice the little thing in the center of the dashboard that mechanically rotates towards you for easier viewing.

It also has a nice Formula 1 style steering wheel with a screen in the center!

eco-friendly architecture

what really makes What makes Scenic Vision stand out is our lofty goal towards sustainable manufacturing.. Because Renault is demonstrating the vehicle as a practical application of its transition plan to become a carbon-neutral brand by 2050.

So the concept car is 95% recyclable and made from 70% recycled materials.

For example, carbon fiber used in body parts and hydrogen fuel tanks is 100% recycled from aviation industry scrap and paper waste.

About 30% of the car’s plastic compartment is bio-sourced and the floor is made of 100% recycled plastic from milk bottles and plastic pipes.

Even Scenic Vision has no leather shards. Instead, Renault replaced it with recycled, low-carbon polyester. Even the tires are environmentally friendly using sustainably made natural rubber.

The Scenic Vision concept will be converted to a production version by 2024. It’s unclear what features of the concept will be implemented, but we hope Renault maintains a sustainable profile. Develop vehicles with the lowest possible carbon footprint.
