Electric crossover concept inspired by the legendary Renault 4 is revealed - See photos!

The new Renault 4 is scheduled to be presented as an all-electric crossover concept in Paris Motor Show 2022, but before that, two photos of the model were revealed by the French automaker.

In the shaded images released by Renault, we can see the adventurous nature of the concept and the stunt LEDs.

According to Gilles Vidal, head of design at Renault, the new renault 4 and renault 5 represent a modern interpretation of the iconic models from which they are derived and differ in form from the rest of the French manufacturer's lineup.

In fact, the concept car has a similar retro feel to the original R4, which sold over eight million units between 1961 and 1992.

Renault 4 is a retro looking car

At the front, the model recalls the legendary car, as well as the rear side windows and vertical taillights.

On the side, it resembles a Dacia Duster, and the large wheels that protrude from the body indicate an off-road orientation. At the same time, the equipment on the roof resembles expedition vehicles.

The concept uses an SUV silhouette with high ground clearance and large-diameter wheels that appear ajar thanks to scalloped fenders.

In addition to the LED headlights, which are enclosed in a closed, illuminated grille alongside the new Renault badge, we see LED taillights with three vertically arranged elements, again like the original R4.

This isn't the first time we've seen a tribute teaser for the Renault 4 EV, as the French company showed off its grille and silhouette last year.

The new images depict a different and more extreme looking SUV, leading us to believe the show car will be toned down for production.

The concept comes 30 years after the end of production of the original Renault 4, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the 4L Trophy humanitarian rally.

The model's debut is scheduled for October 17.
