Given that the price has not been confirmed, in what way is the car "finally here"?

I don't know which videos you are referring to, so the answer is probably no. But looking at this from another angle - the Renault 5 is not listed on Renault's website as one of its electric cars. So my question stands - in what way is this model "finally here"?


I like a car where you sit high up like the Zoe. I doubt you will in the 5 and you don’t in the Megane. It’s a shame there isn’t an electric Dacia Duster

We need less tall, heavy SUV’s, not more. They’re completely unnecessary and their heavier weight and worse aerodynamic qualities are ultimately worse for the environment whether EV or petroleum. They’re also worse for pedestrians in impacts.


For me, there’s no way I’d sign up with a deposit to join the queue for a 5 without first having a drive in one and on a more basic level, even seeing how comfortable and ergonomic the driving position is.

Properly insulated cabin and battery to maintain heat during winter?

Increased warranty time for all electronics to at least 6 years 200000km whatever come first.

True and working OTA and firmware/software team that have all intention to maintain and improve everything of the car for at least 10 years.

In short improve on all…


Looks nice
