    Frankfurt 2013: Renault Initiale Concept

    New Renault Initiale Paris Concept Likely Previews Espace's Crossover Successor
    SEPTEMBER 07, 2013
    Carscoops

    Pictures of Renault's Frankfurt Motor Show world premiere surfaced on the internet today. While there's no accompanying information, it has the same headlamps as the model Renault teased just last week that was described as "new concept car which embodies its vision of Premium motoring". French media revealed that its name is the Renault Initiale Paris Concept.

    Since the beginning of this year, Renault officials have been talking about reshuffling the marque's lineup and priorities, with the Group's former No 2 Carlos Tavares, who was resigned just last week, previously stating that the launch of an Initiale Paris sub-brand was in their to-do-list.

    Mostly all 7 - 8 passenger CUV's/'mini-vans', are going to be this shape in about 10 years, or 'less'.

    Has a very Mazda vibe to it.

    Note to GM - see concepts and release cars don't have to be boring silver! I don't particularly like it but it is only as bad as an X6.

    This doesn't make sense... resigning isn't something that is done to you. So, did he quit or was he sacked, etc?

    Other than that, I don't really have any opinion on the car - not as ugly as the Vel Satis, mind.

    was he re-signed (new contract) or did he resign. The "-" makes a lot of difference!

    I love it, especially the trippy D pillar.

    That looks good for a van, especially the side profile shot.

    Thank you, I thought I was the only one to find boring official photographs GM: gray car on a gray background.

    Fortunately the car was spectacular, which compensated for the banality of the shooting.

    Love it! Especially for what it is. Everyone can build a sexy GT. This ain't exactly sexy, but for a minivan , it is certainly interesting and inoffensive without being boring. I look forward to seeing the next Espace.
