Renault Eolab was officially unveiled, ahead of its Paris Motor Show debut. The Eolab, which was named after combining the name of ‘Aeolous’ God and Ruler of the Winds in Greek mythology, and ‘Laboratory’, is a concept that shows how Renault intends to adopt hybrid technology.
The B-Segment concept features an innovative architecture, with technology set to be introduced on the market starting with 2020. The 100 patented innovations found on the Eolab, help the concept achieve an average consumption of just 1/liter 100 km, or 282mpg and 22g/km CO2 emissions.
The performance was achieved by using aluminium and magnesium, that help the car weight only 950 kilograms. The car is best for journeys of less than 60km and at speeds of up to 120 kph.
The concept is using a hybrid powertrain that combines a 1.0 liter three cylinder petrol engines with a an electric motor. The conventional engine develops 75 hp and 95 Nm, while the electric comes with 68 hp and 200 Nm of torque.
