The new Scenic Vision takes the current Renault Megane E-Tech's front axle mounted motor that is good for 215bhp and pairs it with a 40kWh battery pack. In addition to this, the Scenic Vision concept adds a 15kW hydrogen fuel to the mix which is kept under the floor of the SUV and recharges the concept vehicle as it moves down the road.

Renault claims that in the 2030s, Hydrogen refuelling stations will be common enough to allow the Scenic Vision to go a distance of 500 miles (804.67km) without stopping to charge. Instead, the French carmaker states that drivers will only have to stop for 5 minutes to refuel the hydrogen tank that weighs just 2.5 kilogrammes.

Renault states that 95 per cent of the Renault Scenic Vision concept's materials including the battery pack are recyclable. All the materials used for the exterior - steel, aluminium, carbon fibre and plastics - can be recycled at the end of their life. Renault states that once a battery is no longer fit to power a vehicle, its energy can be reused in stationary storage solutions in homes or offices, or elsewhere (in boats, refrigeration systems, machinery or airport logistics, for instance).

The only major concept car flashes of exuberance can be found on the sides with the suicide rear doors, the lack of a B-pillar and the large 21-inch alloy wheels which sport a rather unique design which aids the aero profile of the concept SUV. Other fancy touches include the illuminated C-pillar and Renault badge at the rear.
