Concept 2018-2019 Renault Eolab



In recent years, the brand 2018-2019 Renault began to pay more attention to electric and hybrid propulsion systems.
There were serial electric Twizzy, of Zoe and Fluence ZE The development and new models, which confirms the concept car 2018-2019 Renault Eolab.


The 2018-2019 Renault claim that Eolab construction – around 100 technical innovations.
Thus, its body is made of special aluminum and magnesium alloys used in the construction of carbon, glass and ultra-thin – 3 millimeters.

Even the concept of brake discs are made of aluminum alloys.
Aluminum is used and chassis manufacturing.
Of this material are made, in particular, the sub-frame and suspension arms.
It is possible to reduce the weight of the vehicle just 400 kilograms – up to 955 kg.



Well-designed aerodynamics, so the drag coefficient – only 0,235 (the best index for serial cars – 0.23 – belongs to the Mercedes-Benz of CLA ).
In particular, in the front bumper retractable spoiler is provided, which improves the air flow under the bottom of speeds in excess of 70 kilometers per hour.

The hind wings are nominated flaps and wheel rims open holes for ventilation of the brakes.
Tires concept car is very narrow – the size 145/40 R17.

Hatchback looks quickly through the wedge of the window line and the shape of the roof falling.
Interestingly, the right hand he has two hinged doors, and on the left – one.



Honeycomb grille in the middle is decorated with a large 2018-2019 Renault logo.
And in the bumper air intake is placed wide.
Narrow lights – LED.
The sidewalls noticeable ventilation “gills” and the wings extended.

Roofs – completely transparent.
The narrow rear panoramic glass top covered with a spoiler and lights spread over the entire width of the body.
Salon French concept Eolab decorated cloth and a special light rubber.

The instrument panel is replaced by a digital counterpart.
Readings displayed on the display, which is attached to the steering column and adjustable with height it.
on the front panel keys are replaced with 11-inch tablet, which can be mounted both vertically and horizontally.



Interestingly, it can display information about overclocking, the level of battery power, aerodynamics and rolling resistance of tires.
four individual seats are installed in the interior concept.
In order to reduce the weight of the backrest are made thin.

Equipment includes a rear view camera and climate control.
The hybrid propulsion system concept consists of a 1.0-liter gasoline engine with 75 horsepower and 68-horsepower electric motor.
The total torque of 295 Newton-meters.

There are two modes of operation.
The “Weekday” mode (translated as “weekdays”) plays the main role the electric motor.
The speed is limited at around 120 kilometers per hour, and the battery charge is enough to drive 60 kilometers.



The mode «Weekend» ( «off») both motors work together and average fuel consumption in this case – only 1 liter per 100 kilometers.
For the concept Eolab developed a special 3-speed transmission without a clutch, because its role has all the same electric motor.

Interestingly, the first two transmissions are intended for both engines, and the third – only for gasoline.
Also the car has received the active air suspension with variable ground clearance: at a speed of 70 kilometers per hour, he is reduced to 25 millimeters.

Brakes Eloab also differ from traditional counterparts.
These nodes for the concept car 2018-2019 Renault engineers have developed together with the specialists of the company Continental.



A distinctive feature of prior art brakes is that the pads in the absence of pressure on the pedal is not in contact with the brake disc surface.

Moreover, if the electronics recognizes a situation in which a driver has to use the brakes, it will move independently pads closer to the discs.
This solution helps to improve fuel economy and extends pad life.

Concept 2018-2019 Renault Eolab presented at the Paris Motor Show.
Many of its solutions we will be able to see on a future production model which will represent up to 2020-year.





On the possibility of creating a production version of the 2018-2019 Renault in Eolab no information failed.
British publication Autocar says that the production-ready version of ultra prototype would be a rival air hybrids PSA group ( the Peugeot the Citroen ).
