RENAULT TO UNVEIL WIND AT GENEVA

In a World Première at the Geneva Motor Show on 2 March, Renault will unveil its brand-new coupé-roadster – Wind.

Wind is a two-seater coupé-roadster of 3.83 metres in length which features a highly innovative way of opening up. With its novel electric roof that pivots open in just 12 seconds, Wind brings a completely different take on a car for drivers who enjoy open top motoring.

Wind is aimed at motorists who lust after a car that is not only distinctive and compact, but also convertible yet practical enough for everyday use.

Although Wind’s compact dimensions make it a nimble machine in and about town, it is the only car of its class to provide just as much luggage space (270dm3 VDA) whatever the position of the roof.

True to Renault’s brand signature “Drive the Change”, Wind makes passion affordable for everyone.

Wind will be unveiled at a press conference on the Renault stand at the Geneva Motor Show at 4:15pm on 2 March.
