Renault 5

The long-awaited electric Renault 5 E-Tech has ended up on the Dutch price list. It is currently available from €32,990, but next year a stripped-down engine version will be available that will cost less than €25,000. The question, however, is whether the latter meets your needs for daily use.

Renault has been keeping people busy for a while with the electric 5. About three years after Renault previewed a successor to the Zoe with the 5 Prototype, we were finally introduced to the production version in February this year. Renault promised that the starting price of the electric 5 would be €25,000. There appears to be no lie in that. The Renault 5 E-Tech Electric will soon have a starting price of €24,990 in the Netherlands. Indeed, soon. That entry-level car will not arrive until early 2025. The Renault 5 E-Tech Electric can be ordered in two other flavors this year, but they are more expensive.

The price list of the electric Renault 5 E-Tech Electric currently starts at €32,990. For that money, Renault puts the keys in your hands to a 5 E-Tech Electric with a 52 kWh battery and a 150 hp electric motor. That price applies to the Techno version. It can also be ordered as Iconic Cinq and costs €34,490 in that form. These two versions of the electric retro rocket have a range of 410 kilometers behind their name. Fast charging is possible with these Renaults 5 with up to 100 kW. The Peugeot e-208 is currently available from €35,870 and offers a 136 hp electric motor and a 50 kWh battery pack (range: 363 kilometers).

Next year, Renault will expand the delivery range of the 5 E-Tech Electric with a 95 hp entry-level car that costs just under 25 grand. It will not have a 52 kWh battery, but a smaller, 40 kWh battery. Of course, that won’t get you as far. The electric range of that variant is 300 kilometers. This entry-level version cannot fast charge. However, there will also be versions of the Renault 5 E-Tech with a 40 kWh battery that can fast charge (80 kW). In addition to a 95 hp engine version with a 40 kWh battery, there is also a 120 hp version with this battery pack in the pipeline. Renault will also introduce more versions next year, including a Roland Garros flavor that also has the 52 kWh battery. The Renault 5 E-Tech Electric with a 40 kWh battery will be available as Five, Evolution, Techno and Iconic Cinq.

Standard equipment

The Renault 5 E-Tech Electric Techno with a 150 hp electric heart and the 50 kWh battery offers a heat pump, battery preheating, an 11 kW on-board charger, 18-inch alloys, climate control, a reversing camera and adaptive cruise control as standard.

The Renault 5 E-Tech Electric will not be in showrooms until the end of this year.
