Renault is celebrating the 50th anniversary of their Renault 5 hatchback which was one of the most important products for the manufacturer. Renault will be showcasing their new R5 Turbo 3E at the Chantilly Arts & Elegance 2022 contest. This all-electric show car's contribution to the Renault 5's 50th-anniversary celebrations is a contemporary take and tribute to the most celebrated sports versions - the Renault 5 Turbo and Turbo 2.

The concept has been named like this because it follows the Turbo 2 with the "E" standing for electric. The R5 Turbo 3E could also be seen in the Cyberpunk 2077 video game. The show car looks modern and filled with technology but still has an old-school charm to it because of the way it is designed.
