About Renault Express

Technically, the Express was based on the second generation of the Renault 5 to which it is identical, except for a few stylistic changes, back to the A-pillar. It also uses the two front doors from the 5-door car.

Special features of the Express compared to the Renault 5 were the lengthened wheelbase by about 15cm, the raised roof over the driver’s cab and the box structure behind the B-pillar. The vehicle came as a non or partially glazed panel van version with up to two seats, as a glazed combi with five seats. Rear access was double doors in the rear (with or without ‘giraffe hatch’ above for long items), or with a large, upward opening tailgate. The Express was also supplied as pickup, as standard factory wheelchair vans or with various special bodies (refrigerated trucks, workshop vehicles available, etc.). (Source Wiki)
