Renault has announced details about the Renault Scenic Vision concept car, equipped with a hybrid hydrogen-electric power plant. The new concept has dimensions of 4.49 m in length and 1.9 m in width, weight - 1700 kg, made in the body of a crossover. According to the company, the new model will be made from 70% recycled materials.
The concept is powered by a 160 kW (218 hp) electric motor powered by a 40 kWh battery. There is also a hydrogen cylinder (about 2.5 kg) and 16 kW hydrogen fuel cells, it takes only 5 minutes to fill the cylinder with hydrogen. Renault called this system H2-Tech.
Renault also said the 40kWh Scenic Vision battery is recyclable and will be produced at a plant in France in 2024. In the same year, the company will launch mass production of an all-electric version of the Scenic Vision based on the Renault-Nissan CMF-EV universal platform, and the launch of a crossover on a hydrogen-electric power plant should be expected no earlier than 2030-2032. The company said the hydrogen-electric plant is part of its long-term plans beyond 2030.
It is assumed that in most cases Renault Scenic Vision Concept will be used as an electric car: the battery capacity is enough for daily trips around the city, and for trips over short distances. If you need to go a long distance, hydrogen elements are used. According to the manufacturer, the range of Renault Scenic Vision will be about 500 miles (on a full battery charge and a full tank of hydrogen).
