Renault Tackles The Future Of Mobility With New Symbioz Concept

Renault has released the first teaser that previews an entirely new concept car, called the Symbioz, which will celebrate its premiere in Frankfurt, next week.

The study appears to have a futuristic 3-door design, with wide rear fenders, slim LED taillights and a set of large wheels, with the French company saying it’ll give us a taste of the brand’s future of mobility.

“This new concept addresses customer expectations for both mobility and lifestyle in the future, as well as the environmental and urban challenges that lie ahead”, Renault says. “It is also a way for Renault to explore autonomous, electric, and connected mobility in the future.”

The concept’s name is derived from the Ancient Greek word ‘sumbiōsis’ which means ‘living together’, as the Symbioz functions “harmoniously and in permanent interaction with its environment, road network infrastructure, and the digital lifestyles of its occupants”. As far the implementation of the letter ‘Z’ at the end, the French company says that it refers to the Z.E. zero-emission technology that lies beneath its body.

The new Renault Symbioz Concept will be presented during the press conference at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show, starting at 9:50am CET (3:50am EST) on September 12, but it won’t be the brand’s only premiere as the new Megane RS will also be there to shine under the spotlight.
