Renault's production version of the 5 E-Tech Electric, a modern interpretation of the 1972 original, was officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

With a range of up to 400 km (249 miles), the French subcompact hatch retains the styling of its conceptual sibling from 2021.

Among the most affordable EVs on the European market, the Renault Zoe starts at around €25,000 ($27,100).

Using the expertise of Renault's newly established Ampere unit, the R5 E-Tech Electric was developed in three years.

The Clio and Captur are both based on the CMF-B technology that also underpins AmpR Small, the first production model to use that technology.

Its retro-inspired exterior echoes most styling elements, including the wheels, from the preview concept.

In honor of the original 5, the LED graphic on the darkened headlights resembles a pupil.

Among the Renault 5's most notable nods are the vertically mounted taillights.

Featuring subtle extensions from the side panels and connected by a black trim piece,

they enhance the hatchback's aerodynamic performance. This vehicle is notable for its hood-mounted charge-

indicator, which was inspired by the original Renault 5's signature intakes.

With a 10.1-inch touchscreen and digital instrument cluster, the car is the focal point.

ADAS Level 2 Active Driver Assist is included in safety equipment. There is also a prominent start button on the multi-function steering wheel

There is a 326-litre boot space and 500 kg (1,102 pounds) towing capacity with the hatchback.

Its single electric motor delivers 94 hp (70 kW / 95 PS), 121 hp (90 kW / 122 PS), or 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and can be ordered in three power outputs.

Battery packs are available in 40 kWh or 52 kWh capacities, with the latter providing WLTP ranges of up to 400 kilometers.

Charge rates of 80 kW and 100 kW are supported for DC fast charging.

Starting at around €25,000, the Renault 5 E-Tech is positioned to compete directly with a range of current and upcoming models.
