In addition, a tablet comes out of the driver’s seat to play a game or watch a movie and for Kids there is also a blackboard which is integrated on the sliding door. One more featuring detail are the external mirrors that in work mode are vertical combined with the interior green lighting, otherwise if the family is on board the mirrors rotate in a horizontal position and the interior lightning in orange. The futuristic description of the Renault Frendzy Concept is completed by the canvas roof, which its soft structure fits large objects.
