Renault Shared Mobility Concept Confirmed For Geneva

A futuristic Renault concept was recently caught on the streets of Barcelona and now the company has confirmed the model will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show.

The automaker was light on details but confirmed the concept “embodies its vision for shared urban mobility.” Renault went on to say they are “passionate about making life easier for customers” and the concept will embrace this philosophy. That’s not much to go on but it appears the concept will be an autonomous vehicle envisioned for use as part of a ride-hailing service.

Besides the concept, Renault will introduce the Zoe R110 which has an upgraded electric motor that produces 109 PS (80 kW) and 225 Nm (166 lb-ft) of torque. It enables the model to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 11.4 seconds, hit a top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph) and travel up to 300 km (186 miles) on a single charge.

Renault will also introduce a new engine for the Talisman and unveil an “exclusive new version of the model.” Furthermore, the company will showcase the Captur and Scénic with the new 1.3-liter Energy TCe engine that was developed with the assistance of Daimler.

Other Groupe Renault brands will be at the show and Alpine will announce “new developments” for the A110. The brand will also reveal news about its motorsports program.

Rounding out the lineup is Dacia which will unveil a limited-edition of the Stepway.
