Renault Be Bop to become a reality

Renault Be Bop to become a reality

Renault Bebop fq

The Renault Be Bop concept was first seen at the 2007 Frankfurt motor show and it hasn’t got any prettier. But these unique little vehicles will soon be available in Europe. The production Be Bop maintains the two-door van layout of the concept vehicle, and the ceiling is now comprised of two tilting glazed glass panels up front, one fixed glass panel in the middle, and an opaque roof panel in the rear that lifts up and forward to create an open air experience for back seat passengers. This special roof creates a van-vertible, a fresh concept for tradesmen and quirky folk. Letting even more light in are expansive side windows, so despite being tiny in dimension, the Be Bop shouldn’t feel confining to its passengers. The rear seats can also be removed to increase cargo capacity, and Renault says that passengers can even enter the vehicle through the open rear gate and slide between the rear seats. There will be three engines available an 85-hp 1.5L dCi and 105-hp dCi, both of which are paired with a six-speed manual, and a gas-powered 105-hp 1.6L four-cylinder. It’s a crazy looking ride, and definitely has a good helping of French flamboyance. At this stage it’s unclear if the Be Bop will prove too exotic to make it down here, we will have to wait and see.
