Retro styled Renault 4
Retro Concepts, the New Renault 4 by designer David Obendorfer.
About the original car:
The Renault 4, also known as the 4L (pronounced “Quatrelle”), is a hatchback economy car produced by the French automaker Renault between 1961 and 1992. It was the first front-wheel drive family car produced by Renault.
Renault 4 was Renault’s response to the 1948 Citroën 2CV. Renault was able to review the advantages and disadvantages of the 2CV design and come up with a larger, more urban vehicle.
The result is a combination of modern lines and the classic’s features, coming together in such a way that none of the original’s smallness and cuteness is lost. It shows us how a car can be both simple in design, practical and incredibly charismatic. Something modern cars do not exhibit often anymore.
It’s a modern design with retro-styling cues, perhaps designed to be built on an existing architecture. And like most new cars today, the Revival has been designed with alternative power plants – such as hybrid and all-electric ones – in mind.
Much like the exterior, the interior is attractive in its simplicity. The instrument panel retains the look-and-feel of the original Renault 4.
