Video: Renault debuts its Morphoz concept vehicle

03 March 2020

The Geneva International Motor Show is typically the place to see several new concept vehicles from automotive OEMs, however, that will not be the case this year following news of the show's cancelation due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.

As such, automotive OEMs will now roll out their concept vehicles over the coming weeks instead. One of the first announcements comes from Renault, which presented its vision of the future of mobility with its Morphoz concept vehicle.

The Morphoz is a modular CMF-EV electric platform that offers several configurations for power, capacity and range. The electric mobility platform architecture allows a long wheelbase with the wheels located at the very corners of the vehicle, reduced overhangs and a flat floor. The battery is placed closer to the ground and when it is ready to be changed, it pulls into a charging station where it is replaced, and the vehicle can get back on the road in minutes.

The concept vehicle is connected, equipped with Level 3 autonomous driving functions and includes sliding seats to give passengers extra space.
