cutting-edge technology

Scenic solarbay

innovative tech packed into 1 m²

solarbay is the result of joint development by Renault and Saint-Gobain. It is based on Saint-Gobain Sekurit’s AmpliSky® full electronic system. This technology uses a PDLC* film between two glass plates charged with an electric current that changes the alignment of the liquid crystals. This design therefore shaves 30 millimetres off vehicle height, which helps to improve Scenic E-Tech 100% electric’s aerodynamics and driving range.


Only Renault currently offers such a “smart” roof, lightening and darkening from multiple directions, in a gradual wave.
