The 2018 Auto Expo saw the India debut of the Trezor Concept that has been acclaimed for its design, the world over.
Renault India has showcased the Trezor concept at the 2018 Auto Expo in Delhi. The 2 door electric coupe points out towards future design language for the French company. The design is based upon warm, simple, sensual lines. The Trezor sees the brand explore a new approach to dashboard design with a unique L-shaped display that combines the dashboard controls and the multimedia system. This type of screen reinforces the interior’s cockpit feel while the satellite-navigation instructions continue to be visible on the upright part of the display.
The company also displayed the Zoe e-Sport Concept is a fully electric concept car which is made entirely from lightweight carbon fibre that helps to ensure outstanding acceleration from standstill to 100 kmph in just 3.2 seconds. The car tips the scales at a mere 1,400 kilograms, including 450 kilograms of batteries. It has a range of 300 kms in real life driving conditions.
Fabrice Cambolive, Senior Vice President, Chairman, Africa-Middle-East-India (AMI) region, shared, “2017 was a record year for Groupe Renault with sales of nearly 3.8 million vehicles globally. Over the last 5 years, we have consistently increased our global sales volumes. There is an increasing contribution from markets outside Europe, which is testament that our global growth ambitions are taking shape. India forms an important part of this growth strategy and we have invested heavily to ensure that we have a strong foundation in this challenging and dynamic market. We have successfully established the Renault brand in India in a short span of time. We will continue to work towards increasing our sales volume and market share here, aided by our strategy of range renewal and quick network expansion.”
Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, Renault India Operations, said, “The transformation to electric cars is inevitable in India, which poses a great opportunity to the automotive industry. It is time for the government to put in place a clear policy, time-frame and the necessary infrastructure to enable automobile OEMs to be adequately prepared and take strategic long-term decisions. Renault is the EV leader in Europe, with comprehensive knowledge about advanced and affordable EV technology, which we can harness through our technology centre in India. We have already made our presence strong in the focal segments of India’s automotive market and are future-ready to build our range, in keeping with evolving market needs and conditions.”
