Trezor is from the Love 'petal' of Renault's 'Life Flower' design strategy - following in the footsteps of the 2010 DeZir concept - and previews trends likely to be seen in future Renault models.

Trezor, a two-seater electric coupé, embodies the new design philosophy Renault introduced on its DeZir concept in 2010 before inspiring the lines of new Clio in 2012.

With its powerful styling and Passion Red coachwork, the DeZir heralded the first stage of a design strategy founded on the cycle of life: falling in love.

The Trezor goes further, by symbolising feelings of maturity and commitment. It reflects the maturity of Renault's designs - a factor that, since 2014, has become the primary reason driving customers to purchase one of the brand's vehicles.

"The Renault range has now been completely renewed and upgraded with a spectrum of complementary models, each one of which has its own assertive identity. With the Trezor, we have pursued this renewal by introducing a new lifecycle sequence. This concept car is the fruit of a freedom of expression and prepares the way for the trends we are likely to see in our upcoming vehicles. These trends fall into two categories: French Design and Easy Life."

Trezor features the new Renault styling cues that are to be found across the contemporary range, namely warm, simple, sensual lines; a clearlydefined family face and C-shaped lighting signature.

The Trezor features striking red glazing and innovative carbon bodywork with contrasting surface finishes.

Smooth and silken at the front, this bodywork mirrors the car's dynamic character. At the rear, it features hexagonal panels that underline the Trezor's sporting temperament and technology. The metallic finish of the Trezor conveys an image that is both sleek and protective.

Its silhouette displays the classic attributes of a GT.

On the bonnet,the honeycomb-form air intake echoes the structure of the rear bodywork. These hexagonal shapes provide a variable-geometry intake, the movement of which embellishes the Trezor with extra dynamism and creates the impression that it is actually breathing.

On the left-hand side of the body, the fuel filler hatch has been replaced by an analogue gauge that indicates the vehicle's charge level, drawing on traditional sports car practice.

At the rear, the Trezor is equipped with resolutely modern fibre-optic lighting integrating a red laser. This 'rope-like' fibre assembly provides bright, distinctive lighting. Under braking, the torsion and stacking of the optical fibres creates an interesting visual effect and increases the intensity of the light.

Within the Trezor, there is a strong focus on evolving interior design.

The style is warm and sensual, with red as the predominant colour. The accent is on driving pleasure and extensive use is made of high-quality materials, including wood and leather. With its blend of craftsmanship, technology and a truly French touch, the cockpit offers a foretaste of the sleeker, increasingly refined interiors of future Renault models, complete with cutting-edge connectivity.

Providing a genuine link between the car's interior and exterior, the red glazing ensures a bright, warm cabin.

The Trezor's one-piece clamshell roof lifts much like the lid of a jewellery box to give access to the interior.

Standing just 1,080mm tall, the Trezor invites occupants to straddle the side of its body as they climb in. This style of entry is a throwback to the world of classic racing cars, where in drivers felt as one with their machines. The sporting and sensual manner of entry is accentuated by the red leather trim for the upper part of the pillar. It looks almost like a saddle, so you might be mounting a steed just as easily as getting into a car. Ingress is facilitated by automatically reclining headrests.

The Trezor provides another surprise when you climb in, with a dashboard made from red wood that incorporates a luggage compartment at the front of the vehicle. Made-to-measure cases are held in place by leather straps and remind how travel can be an art form.

The seats' rounded contours were inspired by the world of furniture design to create a plush, comfortable interior. Upholstered in smooth, deep-red leather, they embody the refinement of luxury goods.

The dashboard is the fruit of a partnership with the French firm KEIM-cycles, which is renowned for its custom wooden, high-performance cycle frames.

Using a high-precision process developed by KEIM-cycles, the dashboard comprises super imposed thin strips of ash. The finished article provides a level of strength comparable with that of modern composite materials and underlines the structural qualities of wood, namely light, strong, organic and warm.

The refined dashboard highlights the cabin's modern, high-tech appointments and features a big touch-screen display.

The rectangular steering wheel opens up the driver's field of vision and is redolent of the world of Formula 1. It features three screens, one centrally mounted featuring the logo and two touchscreen displays to either side instead of conventional stalk controls.
