Renault today unveiled its electric SUV Morphez concept car, illustrating its vision of future electric mobility. Renault Morphoz is a personal complete electric crossover vehicle, connected and equipped with level 3 autonomous driving functions. It prefigures a new family of Renault electric models that will arrive from 2021.

1. Transformable

The Renault Morphoz can be transformed to fit to all uses, both those of everyday life, for short journeys and those requiring a longer range.electric adaptable crossover concept car which charges by induction even as it is being driven. The high adaptability of the Renault Morphoz concept-car is demonstrated by the physical transformation that occurs between its two versions: the short “City” one and the long “Travel” one. The vehicle is in fact capable of adapting itself to the way its users live, be it for daily use or, for example, holiday travel.
 
The short City version of the Renault Morphoz is 4.40 metres long. At 2.73 metres, its wheelbase is a record for such a vehicle length, so that it can easily house the 40 kWh of batteries that are fitted as standard, while still being light and without unnecessary extra cost. 

The long Travel version of the Renault Morphoz is 4.80 metres long. Its wheelbase is proportionately longer at 2.93 metres to allow it to accommodate the additional battery capacity and provide a spacious interior. It can thus carry extra batteries that provide 50 kWh of power (total capacity of 90 kWh) and offer more leg room for the passengers, along with enough space for two more suitcases. In addition, this version – which benefits from a specific light identity – has a specific tapered front-end and profile to optimise its aerodynamic performance optimising it for long distances.

2. Futuristic steering wheel

The Renault Morphoz  has a futuristic steering wheel, at the centre of which lies a 10.2-inch screen that displays the main driving and safety information. Behind this steering wheel, there is a surround dashboard that seems to be devoid of a true instrument panel and multimedia screen. At the request of the driver – who can thus decide to make the screens disappear. This single, wide screen displays both the driving and the multimedia system information. The Livingscreen panel can be deployed in manual driving mode or autonomous mode.

3. Swivelling passenger seat

The passenger compartment on the Renault Morphoz has a “Share” mode that allows the passengers – but not the driver, who always faces the road – to sit face-to-face to converse or participate in a shared activity.


4. Sliding rear seats

When the Renault Morphoz switches from City to Travel mode, the rear passenger seats automatically move backwards to take advantage of the extra space inside. The passengers then have more leg room. It’s also easier for them to behave as if they were sitting in armchairs around a table, where the screen on the cross-compartment centre console serves as a table.

5. Level 3 autonomous driving

The Renault Morphoz concept provides level 3 autonomous driving, as defined by the SAE International organization. Also known as “Eyes off – Hands off”, this level allows the driver to let go of the steering wheel and delegate the driving to the vehicle in certain defined situations on authorised roads, such as on a motorway or in traffic jams. The vehicle can handle the distance from the vehicle in front, staying in lane even on bends, and moving in traffic jams. However, the driver must be able to take back control very quickly (a few seconds) upon request of the system.

6. Aerodynamic alloy wheels

The Renault Morphoz rides on a 22-inch alloy wheels. The diamond-effect wheels and the wheel trims  partially covers the sidewalls of the 22-inch tyres on the Renault Morphoz concept, to give a more fluid look. These wide, fully enclosed wheels reduce disturbance to the aerodynamic flows and improve the vehicle’s efficiency. The tyres are optimised to reduce rolling resistance.
