cutting-edge technology

technology - solarbay - Renault Scenic E-Tech 100% electric
innovative tech packed into 1 m²
solarbay is the result of joint development byRenault 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.

recyclability- solarbay - Renault Scenic E-Tech 100% electric
recyclable and reparable glass roof
The glass in your Scenic E-Tech 100% electric’s solarbay contains around 50% cullet, which is automotive glass recovered from the different stages of production at Saint-Gobain Sekurit’s plants. 

On the road, solarbay glass has two micro-thin layers, providing excellent thermal protection. In this way, its CO₂ footprint is lower compared to conventional roofs. 

At end of life, the glass is ground, filtered and recycled into new automotive glass. Both the PDLC and PVB* films can be reused for other purposes. This means that solarbay has a recyclability rate of more than 90%. 

In the event of an accident, the glass can be replaced just as easily as a conventional glazed roof, since all of its component parts can be replaced individually.
