Designers at French automotive manufacturer, Renault, have ceated a concept
car to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of France’s best-known 20th
century architect Le Corbusier, dubbed the Coupé Corbusier. With a long, high-level
hood, a low glasshouse cockpit, and dihedral doors hinged at the
rear, the Coupé Corbusier is a melange of geometric shapes and rounded angles that reflect the signature style of the great architect.
Renault has been testing a smart-charging system designed to reduce costs and lower the impact of car charging on the electrical grid. Tested using ZOE battery-electric cars, the in-home system has been shown to improve charging time by up to an hour.
Renault isn't wasting time working its way into the pickup truck market. A few months after showing its first pickup truck, it's previewing a one-tonne global pickup that it will launch in the first half of next year. The sporty Alaskan concept is ready for work, recreation and everyday driving.
