Default Rumour: Renault to launch compact MPV & electric car by 2020

Renault is planning to launch four new products in India by 2022. These will include a compact MPV and an electric car. The announcement was reportedly made as a part of the company's 'Drive the Future' mid-term plan during the Groupe Renault Strategic Plan Conference held in Paris on October 6, 2017.

The compact MPV is expected to be based on the Common Module Family (CMF) platform which has been jointly developed by Renault and Nissan. The CMF-A platform currently underpins the Renault Kwid and Datsun Redi-GO. Renault's only other MPV currently on sale is the Lodgy which was launched back in April 2015. In the mass segment, Datsun - Renault's sister brand offers the GO+.

The company also plans to introduce 12 electric vehicles during the same period. These will be based on a new CMF-EV platform. One of the 12 EVs will be launched in India however it is likely to be based on the low-cost CMF-A platform.

Will the upcoming Dacia MPV spawn the next 7 seater from Renault? The Lodgy replacement with an SUV stance!

this model will adopt the CMF-B platform of the Renault-Nissan Alliance

The Dacia range will be enhanced by a new model in 2021. Having not met the desired success, the Lodgy will indeed be replaced by a vehicle still capable of carrying 7 passengers, but offering a more trendy look. In addition, it is expected to inaugurate hybrid technology for Dacia
Quote:
With a length of about 4.50 m, roughly the size of the Lodgy, this "SUV" will compensate for its size contained by a relatively square silhouette to offer enough space on board.
Quote:
This one will consist of classic engines, with the duo 1.0 and 1.3 TCe for the petrol part, and the 1.5 Blue dCi for diesel.
Quote:
Moreover, is the hybrid system compatible with the 7-seater offer, or will it only be offered in a 5-seater version? All these questions will be answered from spring 2021, when the model is launched. The E-Tech version will hit the market a few months later

Renault 4 electric SUV leaked in patent filings.

The new images indicate a design following in the footsteps of the recently-announced Renault 5 electric hatchback remake. However, the old Renault 4 hatchback shape, which was produced as a small front-wheel-drive family car from the 1960s, looks set to be ditched in favour of a high-riding body style, according to the leaked design sketches.

Design shows squared-off, boxy features for the reimagined Renault 4, presenting a far more utilitarian look than its namesake was known for. It’s expected that this car will be a small SUV counterpart to the Renault 5 electric light hatch, which was presented at the beginning of 2021.

The car also sports a set of stylised wheels surrounded by plastic cladding, horizontal lighting signatures and a vented C pillar.

Renault currently does not offer a small electric SUV in its line-up, though will introduce one soon with the 2022 Renault Megane E-Tech. With that, there is likely still space for a supermini SUV to sit underneath that model line, creating space for this Renault 4.

Some suggest that its design could also expand to offer a van variant, bulking up Renault’s already-expansive commercial line-up. Referencing history, the Renault 4 was offered in a two-door van variant.

While not explicitly mentioned, it’s expected that this SUV twin to the Renault 5 prototype will use a similar all-electric battery powertrain.

Renault’s 'Renaulution' business plan will see a focus placed on profits over outright volume and the introduction of 24 new models by 2025. Of those 24 new models 10 will be all-electric, which this Renault 4 reprisal is understood to be a part of.
