The Trezor all-electric GT concept-car transfers track-to-road learnings from Renault e.dams two-time Formula E champion and focuses on performance, mainly the ability to provide acceleration from standstill to 100kph in less than four seconds. The Trezor is a successor to the DeZir which was unveiled in 2010.
Renault, that has revealed the car at the Paris Motor Show, said that the electric motor is similar to the one used in the Renault e.dams car consisting of 260kW and maximum torque of 380 Nm. Trezor contains two batteries with each a cooling system. In addition a Rechargeable Energy Storage System (RESS) has been developed thanks to what has been learned in Formula E.
The Trezor’s proportions also contribute to its engaging on-the-road manner. Its wide tracks (front: 2,048mm / rear: 2,106mm) and wheelbase (2,776mm) enhance road holding, while the ultra-low bodywork optimises aerodynamics to achieve a drag co-efficient (Cd) of just 0.22. Its centre of gravity is also particularly low (ground clearance: 25mm) for greater stability and less body roll.
To improve battery range and performance, Renault Design paid special attention to taking weight out of the vehicle. The chassis incorporates a central carbon cell mated to tubular steel frames front and rear. The monocoque and access hatch are made from carbon. Thanks to this work, the Trezor boasts the poise of a spectacular GT (length: 4,700mm / width: 2,180mm / height: 1,080mm) while tipping the scales at just 1,600kg.
