The name of the new all-electric Renault city car may have been uncovered by CarAdvice.

Less than a month after reports indicated Renault would reboot the classic Renault 4L model as an electric vehicle (EV), a trademark filing has revealed the new model could be named the Renault 4Ever.

The battery-powered Renault 4Ever will form part of Renault Group's 25 new models to be launched by 2025, announced at the brand's recent 'Renaulution' event.

The trademark filing for the new name accompanies another filing for the more familiar Renault Five, which the French car maker pulled the wraps off in concept guise at the Renaulution event.

It's likely the Renault 5 will go on sale in Europe in 2023, with the 4Ever following in 2025, given the 5 was the first of the two to be shown publicly.

Also announced was the company's sub-brand, Alpine, would replace Renault Sport as the manufacturer's performance arm. Alpine will also transition to electrified powertrains for its future models.

Curiously, 'Renault 4Ever' was the name given to a design competition held in 2011, in collaboration with website DesignBoom. The renders in this story were competition entries by talented Hungarian designer David Obendorfer.
