Renault creates flying car concept to celebrate its 60th anniversary

The Renault 4L, a sales success between 1961 and 1992, literally gained wings in a flying car concept developed by the French brand with The Arsenale. Named AIR4, the model is a tribute to the 60 years of Renault.

The flying car is, according to the brand, “a futuristic and original reinterpretation of the 4L”, a model that registered more than 8 million units sold during the little more than 30 years it was on the production line.

“AIR4 is a symbol of independence and freedom, born out of the understanding that traffic is increasing, lives are stopping and the world above us is unimpeded. Thus, the AIR4 claims the air as the new road of the future”, explained Renault.

Arnaud Belloni, Global Marketing Director for the automaker, spoke briefly about what motivated the partnership with TheArsenale: “This collaboration was a natural fit. The AIR4 flying showcar is something you’ve never seen before, and a taste of what this icon could look like in another 60 years.”

Patrice Meignan, CEO and founder of TheArsenale, said that icons of automotive culture like the Renault 4 are timeless, whether on land or in the air: “With TheArsenale’s AIR4, the Renault 4 is ready for one of its greatest adventures ”.

How is the flying car from Renault?

The AIR4 is powered by 22,000 mAh polymère lithium batteries, with a total capacity of 90,000 mAh. The maximum horizontal speed is 93km/h, with a 45° inclination during flights and a maximum inclination of 70°.

According to TheArsenale, it can fly up to 700 meters, with a takeoff speed of 50km/h. The electric car based on the Renault 4L still offers a maximum vector thrust of 380 kg, ie 95 kg per propeller.

Despite being a concept, Renault’s flying car will, pardon the redundancy, fly effectively. The AIR4 will be on display at the Atelier Renault on the Champs Elysées, in Paris, from Monday (29) until the end of the year. After that, he will exhibit in the United States, passing through Miami and then New York, before a pit stop in Macau.
