Elec­tric GT con­cept

Auto Today - - Feature -

The Tre­zor is the French man­u­fac­turer’s idea of an all-elec­tric con­cept GT car. The sleek con­cept car came about in 2010 and since then, has of­fered styling cues to their cur­rent range of cars in­clud­ing the com­pany’s lat­est launch in In­dia, the Cap­tur. The Tre­zor con­cept mea­sures 4.7 me­ters in length, 2.2 me­tres in width and stands nearly a me­tre tall giv­ing it a dom­i­nant pres­ence and rightly tak­ing cen­tre stage at Re­nault’s pav­il­ion. Re­nault’s For­mula E elec­tric rac­ing tech­nol­ogy con­trib­utes to the Tre­zor’s pow­er­train with three driv­ing modes on of­fer, namely neu­tral, sport and au­ton­o­mous. The con­cept’s elec­tric en­gine de­vel­ops 350bhp and 380Nm and a 0 to 100kmph run of un­der four sec­onds. Like For­mula E, the car fea­tures brake force re­gen­er­a­tion. The in­te­rior com­bines wood and leather along with touch­screens for the dash­board and in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem. The party trick is the car’s one-piece clamshell roof that Re­nault de­scribes as the lid of a jew­ellery box.
