2018 Paris Motor Show - Renault EZ-ULTIMO : inspired by French Design

The Renault EZ-ULTIMO, the latest in the 2018 trilogy of concept-cars illustrating the future of shared mobility, is a design showcase for a premium and immersive mobility experience. Here are some photos detailing this symbol of French style and elegance.

A mobile lounge for modern times. This is the ideal reference to define EZ-ULTIMO, the latest concept-car unveiled by Renault at the 2018 Paris Motor Show. This autonomous, connected and 100% electric "robo-vehicle" explores the shared mobility of tomorrow from the emotional side. Its promise: to provide you with a premium and immersive mobility experience, for a single trip, an hour or a day.

Renault EZ-ULTIMO has a two-tone bodywork juxtaposing deep black with green tones on the lower part with champagne from the upper part. The upper part is made-up of 600 diamond-shaped facets, treated like a one-way mirror. They filter the view towards the inside of the vehicle to preserve the privacy of the passengers - up to three people - while providing a transparent effect inside.

The EZ-ULTIMO cabin is presented as an intimate cocoon in which everything is done to make passengers feel like in a living room - typical of a Haussmannian-style apartment, an initial reference for the designers. There is a wooden floor arranged in herringbone, a marble band on the sides, leather and velvet for the armchair and bench. The structure that supports the veneers and the Corian® band that surrounds the cabin are reminiscent of wall and ceiling mouldings.

These top-of-the-range materials are processed in a modern way to meet the requirements of the automotive industry. In particular, they are very thin to limit their weight. Their presence allows passengers to enjoy a relaxing and pleasant living space. A space in which they are offered sophisticated, interactive and personalized content to enrich their journey and go beyond their simple destination.

Finally, the cabin is illuminated in an intimate way by two lamps in pale gold, while a light source of low-angled light highlights the floor. In the end, EZ-ULTIMO brings the Renault brand's "French Design" and "Easy Life" genes to life and presents itself as a high-end vehicle inspired by French elegance.
