Renault continues its strong association with the Roland Garros French Open, marking its third year as a premium partner of the esteemed tennis event, running from May 20 to June 9. This year, Renault is set to captivate attendees with the debut of its Renault 5 E-Tech electric Roland-Garros special series. The vehicle will be showcased at Renault’s 150m² exhibition space, emphasizing its commitment to sustainable mobility.

Renault’s Electrified Presence at Roland Garros
During the tournament, Renault will spotlight the new Renault 5 E-Tech electric in a special Roland-Garros edition, alongside three additional vibrant models from the same line. These models feature unique color schemes such as pearl white, midnight blue, starry black, and an exclusive matte slate grey, all accented with chrome satin-finish roof trim and Ecrou 18-inch diamond-cut wheels in glossy black.

The design of the special series mirrors the grandeur of the Roland Garros venue itself, incorporating the Cross of Saint Andrew motif—a nod to the stadium’s architecture—across various elements of the car, including the lower front doors and roof design. The interior of the Renault 5 E-Tech electric sports refined light grey upholstery, made from fully recycled textiles inspired by athletic wear, enhanced with blue TEP-upholstered lateral supports and featuring the Roland-Garros logo.

Innovative Features and Sustainability
A key highlight inside the Renault 5 E-Tech electric is the e-pop gear selector, which draws inspiration from tennis racket grips, complete with the Roland Garros logo. The vehicle also integrates modern technology such as a smartphone induction charging mat that includes red clay in its composition, and ‘red clay’ loop-pile mats that complement the interior’s theme.

For the duration of the French Open, Renault will provide a fleet of 180 vehicles, 88% of which are electrified, including models like the Scenic E-Tech electric and various E-Tech hybrids. In addition to modern vehicles, Renault will also offer shuttle services with four retrofitted electric vehicles from the 1970s, showcasing the blend of heritage and innovation.

Exclusive Early Access and Car-Pooling Initiatives
Tennis enthusiasts can also benefit from Renault’s car-pooling platform to facilitate easy transportation to and from the event. Moreover, UK residents can look forward to the Renault 5 with the introduction of the R Pass, priced at £150, allowing early access to this innovative model.

The Renault 5 E-Tech electric Roland-Garros special series is expected to hit showrooms in 2025, but visitors to the Roland Garros French Open will get a first glimpse of this elegant and sporty vehicle, underscoring Renault’s dedication to combining luxury with sustainability at one of the world’s premier tennis tournaments.
