The Renault 5 it’s not the only iconic nameplate that Renault plans to revive for the electric era. The French automaker on Monday at St Paris Motor Show 2022 unveiled the Renault 4Ever Trophy concept, a pint-sized SUV that previews the current Renault 4 or 4L.

Debuting 30 years after the original Renault 4 ceased production, the 4Ever Trophy concept is definitely an extrovert design with its tall body, roof rack, chunky tires and underbody protection.

There are also some details that clearly echo the original 4, such as the angle of the C-pillar, the rounded corners of the rear a three-quarter window and a rectangular element covering the headlights.
