Game, 5 and Match, Renault Electrifies Roland-Garros

The Renault 5 will be in the spotlight at this year’s French Open tennis tournament from 20 May to 9 June, with the unveiling of a Roland-Garros special series.

Renault has been a premium partner of the French Open tennis tournament since 2022, and will have a 150m² stand dedicated to Renault 5 E-Tech electric at this year’s event.

Renault 5 E-Tech electric in a Roland-Garros special series
For the Roland Garros French Open tennis tournament, Renault will have a stand dedicated to Renault 5 E-Tech electric. The Roland-Garros special series will be on display for the first time, prior to its arrival in the showrooms for 2025.

The Roland-Garros special series of Renault 5 E-Tech electric features an elegant and sporty design. Four body colours are available: pearl white, midnight blue, starry black and an exclusive shade of matt slate grey. These colours are a perfect match for the chrome satin-finish roof trim and Ecrou 18-inch diamond-cut wheels in glossy black. The specially designed wheels add a further touch of elegance with a hub cap in a matt shade of slate grey.

The lower part of the front doors features a Roland Garros logo in the centre of a design representing the Cross of Saint Andrew, inspired by the architecture of the stadium. The roof of Renault 5 E-Tech electric Roland-Garros boasts a textile-finish grained film in satin black.

Inside the car, the special light grey upholstery with its dense, fine, graphic weave is inspired by technical clothing from the world of sport. This fully recycled textile includes a number of open-weave features, including the H-shape of the backrest. The overall effect is enhanced by blue TEP-upholstered lateral supports. The backrests of the front seats are heat-embossed with the Roland-Garros logo.

This seat fabric is also visible on the door panels and fascia strip, alongside the blue TEP. A ‘blue white clay’ embroidery feature has been added under the passenger air vent. The dashboard trim strip gains a satin metal finish, together with backlighting spelling out the name ‘Roland Garros Paris’.

The e-pop gear selector is inspired by tennis racket grips. The Roland Garros logo can

be seen on the end of the selector, just like the base of a racket.

The central console features a smartphone induction charging mat, including red clay powder in the manufacturing process. Similarly, ‘red clay’ loop-pile mats add the finishing touch to the interior. The brushed aluminium door sills feature a Cross of Saint Andrew, inspired by the architecture of the Roland Garros stadium, and spelling out the name “Roland Garros Paris”.

An electrified fleet and car-pooling for the French Open
For the tournament, Renault is providing a fleet of 180 vehicles, of which 88 % are electrified. The fleet includes 70 Scenic E-Tech electrics, 30 Rafale E-Tech full hybrids, 40 Espace E- Tech full hybrids and 20 Austral E-Tech full hybrids.

Shuttles will also be provided by four R5 vehicles from the 1970s, retrofitted to run on electric power by The Originals Renault – La Collection.

Tennis fans will be able to use the car-pooling platform set up by Renault:
