Renault Ellypse

Ellypse ushers in a new era of harmony between automobile and environment. There is not a hint of aggression in the soft yet structured lines which project the car’s friendly personality. The deliberately minimalist interior is all soothing vibes and spontaneous, authentic charm. Ellypse is a smart, intelligent car, packaging new functionality in an easy-to-use form based on the revolutionary Touch Design approach, which brings man and technology together in happy, intuitive symbiosis. This concept car also embodies Renault’s commitment to making sustainable development a cornerstone of its design philosophy for the cars of tomorrow.

Features

A bit dated i know, but i think Renault have this uncanny ability to see in to the future and i’ll be keeping my beady eyes peeled for anything new that rolls off their production line.
