Renault will reveal new concept in Frankfurt

French automaker Renault has revealed that it will present a new concept vehicle at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show. However. no other details have been specified.

You would have a tough time trying to guess whether we are talking about a hybrid, a combustion, an electric, or fuel-cell car, although the carmaker is known for its trendy, cutting-edge electric vehicles.

Rumour has it that the French car maker will release this concept car as a preview to the next-generation Megane. Although not a lot can be seen from the teaser image, it is already known that the new car will be the sixth entry in Renault design chief Laurens van den Acker's Circle of Life series. The series began three years ago, having debuted with the Renault DeZir concept at the Paris motor show. It includes other concept cars such as the Twin'Run and R-Space. 

The new concept will feature bespoke body panels, a large serving of chrome trim, LED lighting on both ends and elegant alloy wheels. Inside, the hatchback will come equipped with leather upholstery on the seats, door panels and dashboard, and a wide array of high-tech equipment including Renault's touch screen R-Link infotainment system.


If the rumor comes out true, the production version of the Clio Initiale Paris will be revealed at next year's Geneva Motor Show and go on sale in Europe shortly after. 

In addition to the premium concept, Renault will most likely debut a facelifted version of the Mégane hatchback in Frankfurt.  Pictures are not available but it would appear that the car gets an entirely new front end that will put it in line with the Capture crossover and the year-old Clio hatchback.

All body styles are expected to adopt a revised bumper, more angular headlights and each of the four usual versions (three- and five-door hatchbacks, station wagon and convertible) - will benefit from a rear-end customization consisting of redrawn tail lamps and more shapely bumper.


The Renault Concept will be revealed on Tuesday, September 10 along the rest of the series. More details to come shortly.
