Renault Pangea (1997)

Pangea is a purpose-built scientific and environmental exploration vehicle. It features an integrated trailer to provide an independent power source for the electric-LPG hybrid drive unit.

The exterior styling of the Pangea provided the template for the Renault Kangoo that went into production the same year.
