Renault Symbioz Is Like A Mobile Room

  • Thu, 14 Sep 2017 17:52


It seems like you could throw a stone in any direction at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show and you’d end up hitting some kind of autonomous, all-electric concept car. Renault is contributing to that with something it’s calling the Symbioz, but unlike other concepts, this Renault is taking a more... “holistic” approach. The Symbioz name appears to be a deliberate misspelling of symbiosis, and as such, it moves beyond the idea of a car as a standalone object to also encompasses the home where it’s parked. Renault even went so far as to place the concept inside a mock-up home at the auto show to display how “fully connected” it is to its environment. Framed as something you might see by the year 2030, the Symbioz gets the usual electric motivation and autonomous capability, but in addition, the interior was crafted to feel like a home, and indeed, acts as a modular and mobile room when parked, connecting with its “parent” house in a number of ways.

“No longer can we think of car design in isolation from the ecosystem surrounding us, or the evolution of major changes like electric energy use, connected and autonomous drive technologies that influence our lives as we move from place to place,” says Laurens van der Acker, Senior Vice President of Corporate Design. To that end, Renault tapped a variety of “planners, designers and engineers, academics and architects, startups and sociologues” to create this unique concept.
