Electric Car Surprise Renault e-Plein Air Open-Top: France

It's always nice to see an automaker giving an old car a breath of 21st-century air. For the 10th anniversary of 4L International, a festival dedicated to Renault's first front-wheel-drive family car, the French OEM borrowed from its current stable to create a very interesting one-off.

Renault e-Plein unveiled

Renault this week unveiled the e-Plein Air, an electric take on the automaker's doorless, open-top runabout. The e-Plein Air is the creation of Renault Classic, Renault Design and Melun Rétro Passion, which sells parts and accessories for older vehicles. The result is something that looks just as beach-ready as the day it debuted.

The automaker didn't give out too many details, but it did say that the e-Plein Air borrows its EV underpinnings from the Renault Twizy two-seater. Its 6.1-kWh battery only offers about 62 miles of range in the Twizy. Since we're unsure how close the e-Plein Air comes to the Twizy's 992-pound curb weight, it's unclear if this concept will get better or worse mileage than the quadricycle.

Nevertheless, it's a sharp little retro thing. The exterior isn't exactly the same as the usual Plein Air variant of 4L; there's some new livery along the lower body panels, and there's a much more modern grille up front. The interior gets a new set of seats, a cute little picnic basket in the back and a digital display that lets the driver monitor not only speed, but battery capacity, too.

Renault does not give away a lot of information about the retro built according it's classic predecessor. With the R4 e-Plein Air, Renault is celebrating the tenth anniversary of the ‘4L International’ event, where hundreds of Renault 4 owners visit each other every year. As the name of the e-Plein Air suggests, the engine is completely electric. It is the power unit from the Renault Twizy. The Renault 4 e-Plein Air is therefore not very fast, but that is not necessary either. It is the perfect car to drive from your mega yacht to the bakery on a warm morning for a few fresh baguettes and croissants.
