  • Renault Zoe E-Sport Concept

The company said the ZOE e-Sport is meant to bridge the gap between its electric single-seater and its current lineup of EVs, though it seems to lean more toward the race vehicle - and not just because it shares the same paint scheme. The ZOE E-Sport can complete a 0-62mph in a mere 3.2 seconds and records a top speed of 130mph in under 10 seconds. The auto tips the scales at a mere 1,400 kilograms, including 450 kilograms of batteries.

According to Stéphane Janin, Renault's Concept Car Director, the brief for the ZOE e-sport was to have fun, explaining: "we came up with something midway between a production model and a racing car".

This two-seat coupé is made in Dieppe, France, and will go on sale in continental Europe prior to the end of 2017, followed by the United Kingdom and Japan in 2018. As a result, the EV weighs at 3,086 pounds, inclusive of the 992lbs battery pack.

While we weren't at the Geneva show unveiling, this seems more like a bit of eye candy than an indication of a future Zoe production model. "So we came up with something midway between a production model and a racing car.It's ideal for lovers of extreme driving sensations", explained design exec, Stephane Janin.

The electric motor has been inspired by technologies developed by engineers who've worked for Renault Sport Racing and Renault e.dams.

Not only does the e-Sport's two electric motors produce nearly twice as much power as a FE racer, it also weighs just 3,086 pounds, thanks to Renault's use of carbon fiber bodywork.

The car's engines are mounted one front and the other rear and as in Formula E they feature high-capacity permanent magnet technology to maximise energy efficiency. However, where the Z.E. 16 only gets one electric motor at the back, the special Zoe comes with two (front and rear) to give it all-wheel drive.

Apart from revealing a facelifted version of its Captur compact SUV, Renault staged the world debut of a high-performance version of its all-electric ZEO city-car at the Geneva motor show overnight. The E-sport takes on a more square and squat stance that looks suitably pugnacious in matte blue and offsetting yellow accents, mimicking the livery found on the Formula E racer.
