Retro-styled reborn R5 electric hatch will go on sale in 2024 with a starting price that could be around £17,500
Renault says that its new CMF-BEV platform for small cars will give the eventual R5 production model a range of up to 400km (249 miles).
This range figure will be for the larger 52kWh battery pack, which will also likely come with a higher starting price. Le Borgne also confirmed that the entry-level model will be fitted with a 40kWh battery, which will offer a more moderate maximum range but will also be more affordable.
When it arrives in three years time, the new Renault 5 will become a more affordable rival for the Honda e and MINI Electric. It’ll also be joined by an equally retro Renault 4 electric crossover, which draws inspiration from the iconic small family car of the same name built from the 1960s to the early 1990s.
