2011 Renault R-Space Concept

The brief given to the developers was to come up with a simple, intense and pleasant household vehicle to communicate Renault's new style viewpoint in the MPV class. To achieve this, the developers put together intense moments with a monospace structure. The result is a lightweight individuals service provider calculating 4.25 meters in length, and with a outline that is streaming, highly effective and fantastic.

"Renault R-Space Idea delivers together features long considered opposed: household, performance, sportiness and intense moments," describes Axel Breun, Manager of Design for Idea and Show Vehicles. "It solutions the objectives of a huge piece of our world."

The pointed information of the side windows emphasises the highly effective information, while the huge windshield and spectacular ceiling - the width of which progressively changes - convert the traveler section into a warm cocoon of colour.

The nasal area of Renault R-Space Idea changes the new visible identification (centred on the huge, vertically-oriented Renault lozenge) to the ratios of an MPV. Our human body sections are formed as created amounts, significance that the eye is attracted much more to glare and the play of the light than to the lines themselves.

The human body style uses strong types motivated by the human human body. "With R-Space, it was the pent-up energy in stiff muscles that motivated me," shows Fabrice Pouille, external developer. "I wanted to get individuals to feel the desire to caress the human body, to create it intense - despite the fact that this is an MPV targeted at family members."
Renault's ideal series of concept car styles delivers with it a similar development in their colours: beginning with the enthusiastic red of DeZir, upcoming concept vehicles will adhere to the series of the chromatic group. Coming after the red applied for Captur, Renault R-Space Concept is clothed in honey-gold body-work.

The concept being that of the household, it was the picture of the household Saturday morning meal that offered the motivation for Renault R-Space Concept's colors and components. "The pain and comfort of these distributed times find their concept in colors that are hot and 'sweet': the white of the dairy food, the fantastic colors of the baby, the darkish of the dark delicious chocolate," describes Laurence Widmer, Head of Colours and Materials on the R-Space concept car. The concept of smooth and wonder is also replicated in the choice of components - such as suede - which are rich to look at and attractive to the touch.

As the innovator of the MPV, Renault is placing ahead Renault R-Space Concept to take the perspective a step further. To obtain this, the developers took as their beginning the perspective that had made the style such a success in the past: the intellect of the concept itself.

Interior developer Alexandre Gommier explains: "To reinterpret this concept in a contemporary perspective, we offered a powerful noticeable and efficient comparison between the car owner atmosphere, where the concentrate is on generating satisfaction, and a unexpected and highly-original back area created as a play area for kids."

The landscape comes to perspective as soon as you open the twice doorways which, maximum by any main main, give clear access to a amazing internal developed to induce powerful feelings from the very first look.

In conditions of design, the household similarity to the DeZir concept car is clearly noticeable at the top side in the types of the dash and chairs. The car owner loves a cockpit-like atmosphere, with a area of the apparently hovering dash being particularly devoted to generating features. The interlinking activity recommended by the forming of the top side chair backrests is a come back to the concept of a couple in love.

At the back, the community moves around kids. This is a play area, versatile and considerably versatile, and established from a simple and worldwide appearance - the dice. Twenty-seven small engines energy an range of height-adjustable hexahedrons, enabling four configurations to be designed, from an all-flat exterior, to a enhancer chair, a desk or a unique configurations (only when the automobile is parked) for kid's game titles. The dice is a regular concept in fixtures design but not something one desires to come across on the globe of cars: in Renault R-Space Concept's cottage, however, it is very much in proof - to the level of even developing the protecting for the earth and entrance supports.

THE TECHNICAL DIMENSION: AN ENVIRONMENTALLY-FRIENDLY FAMILY VEHICLE

Renault R-Space Idea is operated by the Power TCe Idea. Loaded with innovative functions, this direct-injection fuel website previews the new range of flip TCe applications that Renault will begin establishing onto the market next year.

With a potential of 900cc, this three-cylinder concept-engine is a product of the Renault-Nissan Partnership. Mated to an automated EDC twice clutch system gear box, it provides the efficiency of a 1.6 liter website, with optimum energy of 110hp/80kW and 160Nm of twisting. Its CO2 pollutants have been kept to just 95g/km, comparative to fuel intake of just 3.7 litres/100km.

Packed with high-tech features

The Power TCe Idea website is an example not only of Renault's technique of downsizing, but also of the program of modern fuel-saving, emissions-reducing technological innovation that will be presented on the organization's next-generation applications. On the list are technological innovation such as immediate fuel-injection, radio-frequency ignite attaches, an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) Increase program, a beat Stop&Start program - and even a variable-displacement oil push. Moreover to work targeted at decreasing inner scrubbing, these actions have obtained a very considerable decrease in fuel intake and CO2 pollutants without compromising efficiency.

The burning program, too, has obtained special interest, with diverse camshaft time and the impact of the enhanced lightweight beyond any doubt developing the turbocompresseur providing fantastic speed reaction, especially at low rpm.
Immediate fuel injection: fuel is treated at questionable directly into the burning stage. Along with the rf ignite attaches, which increase the size of the ignite (up to 1,000 times bigger than with a traditional system), the shot program increases burning to the highest level of performance. This cutting-edge in key technological innovation has been developed together with BorgWarner Beru Systems.

As is the case with certain diesel fuel applications, such as the new dCi 130, EGR Boost technologycaptures the fatigue smells after they have approved through the turbocompresseur charger and after-treatment program. Perfectly chilled in a heat exchanger before being reintroduced into the air upstream of the turbocompresseur, these smells then follow the charge-air air conditioning routine before coming into the burning stage to decrease the fuel-air mixture. On fuel applications, this technique allows burning conditions, thereby enhancing the pressure rate and reducing CO2 pollutants.

Pulse start: thanks in particular to the direct shot, this technological innovation allows the ultra-rapid avoiding and reigniting of the website when the vehicle is stationery.

The variable-displacement oil force handles the throughput of oil in line with the accurate requirements of the website, thus restricting the power absorbed by the force. Initiatives to decrease frictional losseshave targeted particularly carefully on the 12 cam supporters, time cycle and aide dresses.

A heat management program, finally, allows the website warm up more rapidly following a cold begin. With the oil attaining its the best possible viscosity more quickly, inner scrubbing is reduced.

To further decrease fuel intake and pollutant pollutants, Renault R-Space Idea is fixed with a program known as DRIVINGECO². With a simple force of the "Eco" button, this program instantly changes website reaction in regards to the various factors impacting power intake (altitude, normal temperature, use of heaters, etc).
The "DRIVINGECO² Conseil" establishing notifies and shows the car owner as to the best way to generate financially and securely.

Renault R-Space Idea is also outfitted with the Visio-System which is based on a forward-facing photographic camera devoted to driver-assistance features. The "DRIVINGECO²" operate records information concerning the car environment (traffic lighting, people crossings etc), empowering the "DRIVINGECO² Conseil" operate to indicate to the car owner the best way to generate financially in each situation.

When the photographic camera finds a set of visitors lighting modifying from natural to red, for example "DRIVINGECO²" suggests the car owner to stop increasing. If, on the other hand, the photographic camera finds a obvious street ahead, and if the obvious range ahead allows, the guidance would be to improve quickly to arrive at the required visiting rate.

At the end of the voyage, the "DRIVINGECO² Score" operate rates the driving eco-driving efficiency, detail various factors such as the use of stopping system and engine stopping. This helps the car owner to assess his or her own eco-driving strategy and benefit from the appropriate guidance.

The fun side of enhancing your eco-driving efficiency is something that can also be distributed immediately with the passengers: children in the back gaming on the displays inset into the head constraints instantly obtain bonuses if the car owner defines a particularly good eco-score on a area of the voyage.
