Renault has unveiled the Frendzy concept, possibly a preview of the next Kangoo, ahead of its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

Essentially a commercial vehicle, the MPV has DeZir-inspired styling, a canvas roof and a sliding rear passenger-side door with a 37-inch digital display.

Inside, the futuristic cabin featuers leather latticework seats, wood floors and a BlackBerry PlayBook tablet which doubles as an infotainment system. Additionally, the rear load floor has a retractable bench seat and "magnetic fixings" which allow cargo to be tied down with ease.

Motivation is provided by a lithium-ion battery which sends power to an electric motor that develops 60 PS (44 kW / 59 hp) and 226 Nm (167 lb-ft) of torque. Detailed performance specifications haven't been released, but Renault says the 1,420 kg (3,130 lb) Frendzy can hit a top speed of 130 km/h (81 mph).
