As a present for the Renault 4L 60th birthday, the company decided to make a flying version of its beloved car.
“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads,” Renault said. AIR4 is a flying car made in collaboration with TheArsenale, a forward-thinking design studio.

The AIR4 is apparently a large drone. The designers were keen to keep the concept that made the 4L so loveable, but more adapted for the sky.
“Generative design techniques and0 artificial intelligence-enabled TheArsenale’s engineers to test multiple terabytes of data to improve and refine the designers’ ideas before the first real-world tests even started,” said Renault.
The Renault AIR4 was completely made in France. They made it of carbon fiber to keep the weight low, with four two-blade propellers instead of wheels. The pilot can access the cabin of the AIR4 by lifting the front-hinged shell. The Renault flies on electricity with 22,000mAh lithium-polymer batteries that generate 90,000mAh of power. The flying car reaches a horizontal top speed of 96 km/h, and with a 45° inclination during normal flights, and up to a maximum inclination of 70°.
the AIR4 can fly at heights of up to 700m, with a take-off speed of 14m/s (46 ft per second).
The Renault AIR4 will be exhibited at Atelier Renault on the Champs Elysées in Paris stated on November 29. The Renault will also show in Miami, New York, and Macau in 2022.
