According to Groupe Renault, "EZ-ULTIMO has a two-tone bodywork juxtaposing deep black with green tones on the lower part with champagne from the upper part. The upper part is made-up of 600 diamond-shaped facets, treated like a one-way mirror. They filter the view towards the inside of the vehicle to preserve the privacy of the passengers - up to three people - while providing a transparent effect inside."

The cabin of this concept car is presented as an intimate cocoon wherein everything is done to make passengers feel like in a living room. With a wooden floor arranged in herringbone, a marble band on the sides, leather and velvet for the armchair and bench, the vehicle's structure supports the veneers and the Corian band that surrounds the cabin.
