Renault has not shared much detail about the concept car yet. The French carmaker released a statement calling the concept car an ‘unprecedented’ one, ‘with a hydrogen engine, embodies the decarbonization trajectory of the Group and the Renault brand as well as their progress in terms of circular economy, recycled and recyclable materials’.

With the new concept car, Renault, like some of the other carmakers like Toyota, has revealed its intention to step into the hydrogen-based vehicles in coming days. As part of its Renaulution plan, Renault aims to reduce ICE models running on petrol or diesel.

The teaser image reveals the front face of the hydrogen concept car in a silhouette, with clear outlines and LED headlights visible.

The side mirrors of the Renault concept car also seems to be just cameras, instead of regular glass. However, it can only be confirmed once the carmaker unveils the model three months from now.

Besides hydrogen cars, which seems to be a fresh approach from the French carmaker, Renault plans to electrify its entire lineup by 2030 in line with European Union's strategy to halt ICE vehicles by 2035.
