Renault unveils a new family SUV concept car called Scénic Vision, equipped with a hybrid engine combining electric and hydrogen.


While the French manufacturer is preparing to stop marketing the current generation of the Renault Scenic, starting with the 5-seater version, then the 7-seater Grand Scenic version, the days of which are numbered, it seems that the model is not abandoned, since a new concept car called Renault Scenic Vision has just been unveiled in Paris.

This time, the Scénic Vision takes up the initial concept of the model (Scénic meaning « Safety Concept Embodied in a New Innovative Car »), and reinterprets it in the contemporary era by transforming it into a SUV familial, both sustainable and technological. There will indeed be many on-board technologies, some of which will enhance security.
