In 2010 Renault announced that the direction of their next series of concept cars would reflect six stages of life; falling in love, discovering the world, starting a family, working, having fun and becoming wise that a Renault customer might encounter.
The Renault DeZir first shown at the 2010 Paris Motor Show reflects the falling in love stage.
It’s sensual coupé body with red leather interior is fitted with a pair of butterfly doors, the drivers opening to the rear with the passengers opening to the front.
Power comes from a 148hp mid mounted electric motor that gives rest to 60 mph in five seconds performance and a top speed of 112 mph.
While no plans have been announced for the DeZir to go into production the design of 500hp twin turbo V6 Renault Sport R.S. 01, which will compete for the Renault Sport Trophy, took the Dezir Concept as the starting point for it’s body.
Since the 2010 DeZir Renault has shown concept cars representing; discovering the world – 2011 Captur, starting a family – 2011 R-Space and working – 2011 Frendzy, but there has been no sign of any concepts representing the having fun or becoming wise stages.
