the future is now!
Unveiled in 2020, Renault Morphoz represents the future of mobility (after 2025 anyway!) as seen by Renault: electric, personal, autonomous and shareable. The electric modular platform from the Renault-Nissan Alliance served as the basis for developing Morphoz, a 2-in-1 vehicle that can change lengths! In certain well-defined driving situations, the driver can let go of the wheel in the Level 3 autonomous car.
The Renault Morphoz concept car can carry extra batteries not only to increase its driving range (up to 700 km by switching to the back-up batteries at the station) but also to share—how nice! The induction rechargeable batteries remain in the vehicle and can be used to power devices in the home or neighbourhood.
Renault Morphoz is modular: it can go from a short City version (4.4 m) to a long Travel version (4.8 m) depending on your needs. It stretches via a sliding chassis at the boot and ahead of the front doors. The rear-hinged doors make it easy to step into the welcoming interior, in grey and yellow tones for some added pep. Morphoz introduces “LIVINGLIGHTS”, the new lighting signature of Renault electric cars going forward.
In Renault Morphoz, connectivity is on full display: the raised front centre console houses the “brain” of the built-in artificial intelligence. When the driver places their smartphone on this console, the AI “absorbs” the smartphone and its data to become a virtual assistant and offer personalised music, screens, and more. Everything runs through the smartphone, particularly the door locking system (which can be shared using an unlock code).
