Renault is considering giving its city-focused Zoe EV a massive shot in the arm, with European reports suggesting the Zoe e-Sport concept could make production.
Reports suggest, a 340kW and 640Nm version of the otherwise rather vanilla Zoe, is still front of mind for Renault's electric vehicle boss, Gilles Normand.
"The e-Sport was more to test the water, to show that you can EVs are not boring,” he said. "It was a communication tool that hit its purpose very well. The reaction was very strong. People were telling me ‘we are interested, can you do something like this?'
“We have not yet come to a conclusion but it did click in my head that the reception to this concept was so positive, and some of our competitors have identified some window of business for something like this.”
With a 40kWh battery feeding motors on each axle and aggressive carbon-fibre bodywork, the Zoe e-Sport isn't likely to be cheap if it reaches production in a similar form to its concept.
