Renault’s R5 could be expected to go on sale around 2024 as an electric, low-cost hatchback; however, that’s only the initial indication of a hot model from the company’s performance arm Alpine that could launch in 2025.

What’s new 2024 Renault Alpine R5

  • Renault confirms 2024 production run for its all-electric 5
  • Alpine has previously announced a performance version
  • The new 5 will be manufactured by the factory that made the original car.

New 2024 Renault 5 Design

New 2024 renault 5 design

The blueprint for 2024’s Renault 5 is such a well-worn path that you’re left wondering why it’s not already created: copy the style of a beloved vintage (the first Renault 5) and fuse it with a contemporary interior and drivetrain and you’ll have a car that’ll be a huge hit.

Think about the number of MINIs and Fiat 500s you’ve seen.

Modern safety standards mean that this new Renault 5 will be much larger than the older model, however, the DNA that the two cars share is evident in the new model’s angular front end, offset vents for the bonnet (which conceals the charging port) and a constant sloping line of the boot and the vertical rear light clusters that extend into front windscreen pillars.

The latest model is mirrored to reflect the lower body contours of the older model, which helps it appear more rooted on the road.

The car is fitted with an opaque, dark-colored roof that can help remove visual weight from the top of the car, as well as sturdy pillars, which means it can meet the current crash test standards.

It’s likely to be fitted with LEDs that shine brightly on the front and back, but there aren’t the extravagant designs seen on this car.

2024 Renault Alpine R5 interior

Renault hasn’t revealed photos from the inside of its 2024 Renault 5 however you can get a sense of what’s coming by looking at the “Hello” message on the windscreen of the show car.

Similar to MINI Electric or the Volkswagen ID.3, which have multi-color interior LEDs to talk to their owners, you can anticipate that the Renault 5 has cutesy features that feel like it’s speaking, like Tamagotchi.

It will also have colorful information screens, maps, and great connectivity.

The huge screens suggest that, despite being a world apart in terms of their complexity, the new model will come with the same amount of buttons that are typical to the older model it mirrors.

It will be able to allow a classic design and trims for upholstery. Don’t be shocked to see two-spoke steering wheels and vibrant seat upholstery.

Renault will not be a top smaller car like its counterparts, such as the Honda e or MINI Electric. So, can we expect the plastic quality to be far from the standards of these cars since Renault keeps the five as accessible as possible?

The latest Renault 5 scores points over its Honda E and MINI Electric competitors by having doors in the rear that can be opened with a lever hidden inside the rear pillar that gives passengers easy access to the back of the car.

If the similarly-sized Zoe (which has the CMF-B chassis) is something to be believed, then you can anticipate the 5 to feature the space for taller adults in the rear and the boot will be big enough to hold two bags for a week.

2024 Renault Alpine R5 performance and range

New model for 2024 renault 5 performance

The MINI Electric and Honda E are equipped with relatively small batteries of 35kWh, allowing quick and smooth handling however, they are not as agile.

The Renault 5 will have a larger battery of 50kWh for a distance of 245 miles and more than double the distance the other models are able to go.

This allows Renault to be used in everyday situations, while the other models are more suitable for second vehicles for families with petrol or diesel.

The Renault 5 is to be offered in 135PS and 110PS versions, accelerating the car from 0-62mph within 11 seconds, while the latter can do it in just nine seconds.

Both will be much more responsive in real life, with scooter-like acceleration from the start and a single-speed gearbox that allows you to not think about changing gears.

The EV’s quiet running will allow you to relax in the city, and its regenerative brakes will slow down as soon as you step off the accelerator. This means that you don’t need to apply the brake.

New Renault 5EV batteries, Range as well

The brand new Renault 5 will come with approximately 250 miles in range once it launches in 2024. It’s about 10 miles more than the range you receive in the top-quality Renault Zoe today.

It is possible that the next Renault 5 will come with faster charging capabilities than the current Renault Zoe, as well.

What is the foundation for the R5 Perform Concept?

The R5 Alpine will be available in 2024. The model will follow with a coupe-style SUV that has dual motors as well as an all-electric variant of an Alpine A110. It is a Porsche 718 Cayman competitor. The electric A110 will also be an exact competitor, as we aren’t sure of the exact date of launch.

Price of 2024 Renault Alpine R5 Perform Concept

Alpine’s interpretation of The Renault 5 should be in showrooms by 2024. It will also signal an evolution in the brand’s position from a sporty automobile maker that is almost unheard of outside the car-loving community to a manufacturer of attractive, relatable, and functional performance vehicles.

Naturally, it’ll come with an enormous price increase over the regular Renault 5 electric vehicle that the company hopes to sell at a price of between EUR20 and 30,000 (PS17-26,000 24,000; $24-35,000) prior to government incentives.

This means that the Alpine will cost around EUR35-40,000, however, as one of the first electronic hot hatches (the significantly larger Cupra Born is Megane-sized) The hottest 5 may be shooting towards an open field.

Engine of R5 Perform Concept

The engine will drive both the rear and front wheels. It will also come outfitted with torque-vectoring technology that will provide the most enjoyable driving experience.

Alpine engineers put driver involvement at the forefront of their process of design, making it thrilling to view the final product.

Le Borgne tells us, as well, that the back wheels will still be driven, even though they will not be powered.

We’re going to be pleasantly surprised by the rear. We’d like to offer amazing performance for our Alpine and torque-vectoring.

Is it a Turbo-Electric?

It was the R5 Turbo launched to homologate a race version that was designed for rallying. The name of the car suggests that it was later upgraded with an engine that could produce power of about 160 horsepower initially. In addition, the four-cylinder is positioned behind the driver rather than the seat in front of it!

However, the new R5 is expected to be electric. Therefore, it is difficult to imagine a Turbo model, especially as the renovation program allows Alpine to build all the group’s sports cars.
