Renault AIR4 FLYING CAR is designed to celebrate 60th anniversary of Renault 4.Renault has partnered with TheArsenale on this truly unique project, and the result is unprecedented. AIR4 is a symbol of independence and freedom, born out of the realisation that traffic is compounding, lives are grinding to a halt, and the world above us is unhampered.

Thus, AIR4 claims the air as the new road of the future.Design wise, AIR4 has resulted in a reinterpretation of the retro icon by TheArsenale, far from the modern car design language. The vehicle, entirely made of carbon-fiber, maintains the same lines and contained mass of the original 4L, yet presenting new dynamic capabilities. To drive around, AIR4 has no wheels. Instead, it features four two-blade propellers, one at each corner of the vehicle.
The chassis sits in the middle of the rota frame, and the driver can access and take a seat in the utilitarian cabin of the vehicle by lifting the reimagined Renault 4 shell, which is hinged at the front.From a technical standpoint, AIR4 is powered by 22,000 mAh lithium polymère batteries that generate a total power of 90,000mAh.
The vehicle counts on an orizontal top speed of 26m/s, with a 45° inclination during flights, and up to a maximum inclination of 70°. It can fly as high as 700m with a take off speed of 14m/s, restained at 4 m/s for safety reasons, and landing velocity of 3 m/s. Last but not least, AIR4 offers a maximum vectorial thrust of 380 kilograms, that is to say 95kg per propeller.
