Renault will launch an urban electric SUV by the end of 2020. The French automotive group has already developed a vehicle inspired by Morphoz, its modular concept car. Expected on the 2021 market, the SUV would offer up to 600 km of autonomy thanks to its CMF-EV platform.
This concept car was supposed to be one of the stars of the Geneva Motor Show 2020, which was eventually canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Some of its sharp and futuristic lines remind the Tesla Cybertruck, especially in terms of optics and light signature. In detail, the Renault SUV would be 4.20 meters long.
The SUV would be based on the CMF-EV platform (“CMF” for Common Module Family and “EV” for Electric Vehicles), a modular platform reserved for electric cars that has no shortage of advantages. The space in the engine compartment is reduced, and the size of the parts of an electric motor is more compact than on cars with diesel or petrol engines.
Thanks to this revolutionary platform, the electric SUV would offer a range of 550 and 600 kilometers, depending on the model chosen. The SUV will be assembled in the same factories as the Scénics.
