Renault Symbioz Concept portrays the brand’s vision for mobility beyond 2030. This will be the time when cars will become interactive. Vehicles will interact fully with connected cities, road infrastructures and homes. Well, Renault Symbioz actually is an integrated car and house. This works together in symmetry. However, such a concept vehicle and connected home have been revealed first time at a motor show. Thierry Bollore, Renault VP spoke few words about the concept. He said that the way of using vehicles is changing. A car is already more than only a medium to go from one place to another. Cars are now fully equipped with technology. As such, they are becoming a personalized and interactive space. Moreover, it connects passengers to other people, objects and cars around them.
If we look to 2030, then we can imagine new scenarios. There will be more effective energy use, connectivity as well as autonomous driving scenarios. However, this would improve how we travel and live. Well, all-electric motors power the Renault Symbioz Concept. It is situated on rear axle with every motor driving one wheel. In case of power, we can expect a massive 680 PS (500 kW) and 486 lb-ft (660 Nm) peak torque. However, it indicates that it can cover 62 mph from a standstill within less than six seconds. Renault Symbioz Concept will travel more than 310 miles (500 km) in real-world conditions of driving on motorways. Moreover, the car comes with 72 kWh batteries. You can charge it to 80% of their capacity within 20 minutes through an inductive charging system. Renault Symbioz will work by driving into the house. There it would become an added, connected space or modular room.
Laurens van den Acker, the Renault boss for corporate design added that they no longer can think of a vehicle design isolated from our surrounding ecosystem. Renault Symbioz Concept is really a unique project. It allowed the brand to work with designers, planners, architects and engineers. Moreover, their goal was exploring new boundaries in technology, design, and energy use and customer experience. This will create entirely a new global experience. As per the French automaker, an autonomous, connected, electric demo car might be available later this year to test. The car would be somewhat similar to Renault Symbioz Concept. However, the demo car is expected to embody the mid-term vision of the brand before 2023. This involves technology such as Easy Connect, Easy Drive and Multi-Sense.
