The Renault EOLAB – a prototype that is adamant to rewrite what’s possible

Posted on Sep 29, 2014 by

seems to be at the forefront of zero-emissions mobility, after all, it has already managed to stock showrooms across the country up with its slightly comical Twizy, but it’s not ready to stop there, as the EOLAB prototype features the impossible; a thirst rating of just one litre of fuel for every 100 kilometres!

To achieve such low figures, the designers focused their efforts on three main areas: minimising weight, refining aerodynamics and using “Z.E. Hybrid” technology for all, a brand new initiative which permits zero emissions motoring during everyday use.

For Renault, the purpose of the EOLAB is to remain true to the company’s DNA, by ensuring that ultra-low fuel consumption becomes a reality for as many people as possible. This in turn means making its technologies available at a price that people can afford.

Featuring magnesium and aluminium, both which are extremely light and also much cheaper than titanium, the EOLAB stays light on its feet at just 400 kg to increase fuel economy. More importantly, the French manufacturer also dials into the plan of having the EOLAB mass produced within the next 10 years.

    Dear Renault.
    I am Rudolf H. P. Meyer a former financial consultant. Now at the age of 77 I am a German Pensioner and live since 2013 for my charity work in Togo. See my website…I hade a dream…http://www;
    I designed a finance concept which is that with a payment of $ 300 I can establish a 100 percent buyer financing. That I like to use that you help me to build a Renault with 3 rows 3 seater with a wing door for the last 2 rows for a Taxi Business to transport people starting in Nigeria to Senegal; That will outprice the Air Line transportation.
    I saw the Renault Duster Limo which need only to have an E- drive train with solar panell on the roof for staddy recharging and the wing door.
    Please help me to build a manufactoring plant in Togo.
