- Renault revealed another version of the 4Ever Trophy concept, this time in Île-de-France Blue paint, a reference to the original Renault 4.
- The concept was first revealed at last year’s Paris auto show, but which wore silver paint.
- The latest concept will be on stage at the 2023 French Open, which starts later this month.
Renault first revealed the 4Ever Trophy concept at last year’s Paris motor show, as a tribute to the original Renault 4 and in anticipation of the vehicle’s upcoming relaunch. The company has just revealed an updated version of the concept, this time finished in Ile-de-France Blue paint, complete with neon accents.
According to Renault, the new concept livery is meant to represent the “iconic tennis ball of the French Open,” which the company plans to introduce the car to. That seems like a bit of a stretch, but either way, we like the look of the concept.
The electric crossover sits on a set of all-terrain tires, with rugged panels running along the underside of the car while spare parts are strapped to the roof rack. Off-road accessories like tow boards and shovels are attached to the rear windshield to help if the little 4 gets stuck off-road.
The new Île-de-France Blue version is inspired by the launch color for the original Renault 4L, when it was launched in 1962. It’s been more than 30 years since the original car left production, and now Renault plans to bring it back in the form of a small EV crossover.
According to reports from Top gear magazine, Renault’s head of advanced design and concepts Sandeep Bhambra said the concept is “very close” to the production version. Of course, we won’t be getting the updated 4 in North America, but that won’t stop us from loving the image. Despite carrying a lower number designation, the new 4 is said to be sized and priced above the 5, which will be closer to the original city 4.
