2019 Renault EZ-FLEX Will Test Last-Mile Delivery In Urban Environments

Renault has turned the EZ-Pro Concept into the EZ-FLEX, a more production-ready version of the car, which will be on display at the VIVA Technology fair in France, between May 16 and 18.

The EZ-FLEX focuses on the future of urban mobility – or, more accurately, urban delivery – and the automaker will lend a dozen units to different companies, professionals, cities and municipalities across Europe.

The experiment should last about 2 years and, during this time, the on-board sensors will transmit different data, such as geolocation, mileage, speed, stops, range, use of cargo opening and others. This information, which will be sent either daily or in real time, will help Renault understand the reality of daily urban use.

At 3.86 meters (152 in) long, 1.65 meters (65 in) wide and 1.88 meters (74 in) tall, the EZ-FLEX has a 3 square-meter (32.3 sq-ft) load capacity and a 4.5-meter (177.2 in) turning circle. This makes it suitable for congested cities, while its electric powertrain will allow it to access city centers. The vehicle has a range of 100 km (62 miles), or about double the distance traveled each day by the average urban delivery driver.

The driver-focused interior is easily accessible through the wide-opening doors. The cabin features a large windscreen and a glass roof, as well as a central display mounted on top of the dashboard that provides access to the usual driving information.

The cargo area has been designed to support different configurations and can be adapted to meet the different needs of professionals.

    Cool little thing. Practical looking as well.

      I know, Postman Pat is gonna be stoked

  • these traditional (ICE) car makers are still after that stupid idea that EV’s must have stupid names, stupid designs just in case of being un-traditional.

    They’re still just not awake after Tesla bomb that hit the market.
    I’m making up EV names; check:

    Idiots.

    • Tesla’s design language is traditional. All car designers come from the same industry. Tesla could have made their cars any shape but chose a traditional design as not to offend. Removing a grille isn’t a revolution. The Jaguar I-Pace is more forward thinking from a design point of view

        True, but in which direction was anybody thinking while approving the Model Y design….Kid´s Toys?

    3M squared of space.
    looks like it is on a Twingo platform.
    This type of vehicle is already in heavy use. The StreetScooter is basically the same idea although it doesn’t look as attractive as this. Deutsche Post use them and our company has a few of them buzzing around the campus.

      This is much bigger than the Twingo, it will be on a different (probably unique being an EV) platform.

      • GlobalPostitpad

        It isn’t much bigger than a twingo and the twingo is already an EV when wearing a smart forfour costume. what remains of the dashboard appears to have everything in the same place as on a Twingo dashboard so heating and ventilation systems would be carried over for the Twingo . They’ve built 12 of them so that means they have an existing chassis to work with. they wouldn’t have made 12 prototype platforms. It is 20cm longer than the twingo and the rear overhang can account for the difference in dimensions.

  • Evo45

    Nice Multipla.

    Jokes aside, it looks interesting actually.

    • GSRiderX

      I agree. The problems with cars exist between the chair and the steering wheel.

  • SteersUright

    Man, this thing is absolutely stylish for a work vehicle!

  • IT LOOKS GOOD IN THE REAR 3/4 VIEW.

  • Mill0048

    I would love to own something as awesome as this!

    The front looks like the car is retarded or something…
