Renault’s Formula E infused ZOE e-sport flaunts the future of hot hatches




And the future looks brighter than ever before, to the tune of 340kW and 640Nm of torque all offered up in silky smooth electric fashion. The Renault ZOE e-sport concept car pulls heavily from the company’s Formula E knowledge base, using a carbon fibre and kevlar for the body has kept the whole package somewhat light at 1,400kg. At this weight and with that power, the ZOE e-sport will put virtually all hot hatches to shame with hypercar like 0-100km/h time of 3.2 seconds. Keeping everything tidy and controllable falls to the double wishbone suspension that’s working in tandem with Öhlins four way adjustable dampers. The rubber meets the road courtesy of 20-inch wheels rolling on fat 245/35 tyres.

The ZOE e-sport proves that electric cars can be both green and mean. Director of the Electric Vehicle Program at Renault mentioned: “At Renault, we believe that electric cars are capable of addressing the needs of all types of customers, with the emphasis on driving enjoyment… The Renault ZOE e-sport concept is a stunning expression of this!“.
