The Renault 4, introduced in 1961, was the world’s first production hatchback and the French company’s first front-wheel drive family car. The model remained in production until 1994, during which time more than 8 million units were sold in more than 100 countries. According to Renault, the 4 was “as comfortable in the city as it is in the countryside, and versatile – you can drive it to work and on long trips, use it to transport goods and more”. As a tribute to the 4, Renault unveiled the 4EVER Trophy concept at the 2022 Paris Motor Show. The concept follows 5 prototypesand this is further evidence that the company is preparing for an all-electric future.
