2011 Frankfurt Motor Show: Renault Frendzy Concept

Renault unveiled today at the Frankfurt Auto Show the Frendzy Concept. The automaker had introduced four electric concepts (Kangoo ZE, Fluence ZE, Zoe ZE, and the Twizy ZE) in Frankfurt in 2009. These offered a preview of how the zero emission product range would look. It was only a year later that an electric supercar was revealed in Paris.

The Frendzy uses the design cues outlined by other Renault concepts like the DeZir, R-Space or Capture. The exterior highlights include separate body colors for the front and rear end, and a single sliding door on one side. An LCD screen was put in place rather than a window.

The rear end opens at both the top and bottom to show a minimalistic interior that features LED lights. Its key interior features include a futuristic dashboard as well as seat layout and functionality.

The Frendzy, which has a resemblance to the Kangoo ZE concept, may be used for work but will function just as well when commuting with the family.
