Renault has teamed up with Miami-based design firm The Arsenal to create a human-sized drone with an updated version of the Renault 4 on top. The launch of this model marks the 60th anniversary of the Renault 4, and aims to show where the brand could go in its 60-year journey. "The AIR4 is a symbol of independence and freedom," Renault wrote. "Born from the realization that traffic is getting worse, that life is slowing down, and that the world above us is free."
The body is built entirely of carbon fiber and is powered by a 22,000 mAh battery that provides 90,000 mAh of total power. Its thrust is 95 kg (209 lb) per fan, and a total lift capacity of approximately 840 lb.
The driver enters by lifting the entire vehicle body from the front to enter a "functional" interior space. The car takes off at 31 mph (current speed is 9 mph), and flies at up to 58 mph. It flew for a while, but is now scheduled to be shown at the Musée Atelier Reno in Paris, and elsewhere around the world (Miami, New York, Macau) in 2022.
