Rendered Speculation: Electric Renault City Car Based on Smart ForTwo

Last April Daimler and Renault-Nissan announced a strategic alliance. The Renault-Nissan alliance will share its small diesel and petrol engine expertise and technology, which Mercedes-Benz use in the next-generation smart ForTwo. In return Daimler, will share its four- and six-cylinder engines with Nissan’s luxury arm, Infiniti.

There are speculations circulating that Renault will develop a new city car based on the platform that underpins the next smart ForTwo.

There’s nothing official yet, but most likely this new Renault city car will use a technology found in the all-electric Nissan Leaf. The rendering above is to show how a smart-based Renault city car could be styled when it arrives in the next few years.
