The fifth generation of the Scénic will reconsider its typical minivan-type body layout in favor of a design and aesthetic characteristics more common to premium automobiles, Renault revealed with the premiere of the Scénic Vision concept a few weeks ago. SUV design.
Everything points to the fifth-generation Scénic’s production version being introduced in 2024, according to recent unofficial information. This new edition will differ significantly from its predecessors in terms of its key characteristics because, in addition to the outside design style, its propulsion technology will be completely different.
In particular, the Renault Scénic V, which we can already think of as the older brother of the Mégane E-Tech and one of the VW ID’s main competitors in Europe, will debut as a fully electric vehicle. The production vehicle for the Vision concept will initially keep the same measurements as the concept, which are 4.49 meters in length and 2.83 meters in wheelbase.
The outgoing model, unlike the Vision, will not have the striking “suicide”-type opening doors or doors that open in the opposite direction because the B-pillar is not there. It is highly likely that the 2024 Scenic will feature a B-pillar in addition to “traditional” or conventional opening doors because this technological resource, which is very frequent in concept vehicles, is very expensive and involves numerous technical and structural challenges.
In the Scénic we’ll see in “real life,” the Concept Vision’s high-tech, futuristic interior will be quickly forgotten. By doing this, the hood won’t be “erased” by a panoramic screen at the base of the windshield, nor will one of the Tesla Yoke or Lexus Papillon’s aeronautical-style steering wheels be there. On the other side, there won’t be four separate seats either; instead, the interior design will feature five seats, with the option for longitudinal displacement on the back bench seat.
Mechanically speaking, a new electric motor with between 150 and 220 horsepower will take the place of the electric motor used in the Mégane E-Tech Electric in the Scénic. There should be two battery type options available: one with a 60 kWh capacity and the other with a higher level of up to 90 kWh. And what may the cost be? They have already forecast that the “basic” models may start around €40,000 in France.
