Ecology is something that each of us should care. That will come another model that will, if anything, less waste of fuel and that the 2016 Renault Eolab. Sure to come here is such a thing that we have certain information that may change but you will be informed in case this happens. Now let’s see what this is about. The French government recently announced an ambitious plan under which each domestic automaker in the next ten years will have to have a product that consumes just two liters of fuel per 100 kilometers with CO2 emissions of 22 g/km.

2016 Renault Eolab Design
Since then, Renault, Citroen and Peugeot have announced new models that are lighter and more aerodynamic, but no serious steps was not until former automobile showroom in Paris. Renault was the first to respond to the domestic market comes with Eolab concept hybrid that combines petrol and electric motor with a combined fuel consumption of just one liter per 100 kilometers. To succeed in such a move, French carmaker had to deal seriously with the dimensions. Eolab is so difficult just 955 kg or even 400 kg less than the Clio, where he is based with the aerodynamics of 0235. With aerodynamics, consumption is as expected obtained by using lighter materials, primarily carbon and new windows.
It is interesting that will be presented in Paris in two Eolaba – one that will show the advantage of aerodynamic and other design cues, and others who will be present technological advances. We will mention a couple of words about the interior, where one can find four seats, with a small tablet to completely control the electronics in the car.
The next step is certainly the engine, so this concept is powered by a petrol engine of 1.0L three-cylinder engine that develops 74 hp and 95 Nm of torque while the electric motor adds 54 hp and 201 Nm of torque while the power is transferred to the front wheels through a three-speed automatic transmission. The first two speed gearbox to be used only when the electric engine moving while burning the gasoline engine can be used, and the third speed. Renault says that this gearbox offers better performance with lower weight compared to traditional CVT and automatic transmissions.
Renault promises that this concept makes even 100 technological innovations, and that most of them, sooner or later, to enter into production. And in the end we will mention a few words about price. Although most such cars Umayya that cost over 40,000 dollars / euros, Renault promises to Eolab be very accessible and does not have high production costs. In the meantime, French vehicle manufacturer will be present and a similar version of the new crossover with a combined fuel consumption of just 2.8 liters per 100 kilometers.
