Reborn 2024 Renault 5 confirmed

Reborn 2024 Renault 5 confirmed

As part of its awkwardly-named ‘Renaulution’ strategy, Renault has confirmed that the reimagined and electrified Renault 5 previewed back in January will be making it to production, with a performance model marketed under the Alpine brand.

Slated to be on sale from 2024, the regular model will use a 134bhp motor, with the Alpine getting a 215bhp version, or 160kW in new money. The bigger motor is physically longer than the regular unit, so with it mounted transversely expect the Alpine to feature chunky boxed arches in the spirit of the original 5 Turbo.

The Alpine versions of the classic R5 were marketed as Gordini over here since Chrysler at the time owned the rights to the name, but following the revival of the Alpine brand in the UK, the reborn Five will wear the right badging. Renault predicts the R5 EV will cost around a third less than its current entry-level electric car, the Zoe, while its ‘4Ever’ concept teased at a recent announcement clearly suggests a reimagined Renault 4 to join it.
