Renault has been a partner of the French Roland-Garros tennis Open since 2022, bringing a specially kitted-out R5 concept in a satin-white finish at this year’s tournament. Furthermore, Renault will provide 185 hybrid and electric vehicles as official transport.
For the 2023 Roland-Garros tennis Open, French carmaker Renault is embracing its role as a partner. As a result, not only will the brand bring a fleet of 90 electric Méganes, 30 Hybrid Austral SUVs, and 20 all-new Espace 7-seater SUVs as official transport, but the brand is also preparing a bunch of little surprises.
The first one of them is the Renault R5 Prototype. Of course, that concept car is no news in the automotive world, as it was first showcased in 2021. However, the design study that prepares for a future all-electric new R5 will be dressed in a new satin-white color scheme for this occasion. In addition to that, it’ll also incorporate specific touches, such as side grills with a Saint Andrew’s cross pattern and the Roland-Garros logo.
Three retrofitted electric Twingos
To mark the 30th anniversary of the small revolution that was the first-generation Renault Twingo, the French brand is bringing three Twingos retrofitted with electric drivetrains.
They are the Twingo Gangsta Crew, inspired by the West Coast culture of Californian lowriders, the Twingo Top Model, arching back to catwalk shows of the 90s; and the Twingo Y2K, inspired by the boy band culture of the 2000s. Developed in partnership with R-FIT, these unique pieces will transport fans and guests around the stadium.
In addition to a free-floating car-sharing solution for fans by Mobilize, Renault offers the general public a first look at two additional show cars. They are the 4EVER Trophy concept car, kitted out in the colors of the first-ever 1962 4L, and the all-new Espace E-Tech hybrid SUV.
