Renault Zoe E-sport hyper hatch is revealed at Geneva sporting 456bhp
After giving the pint-sized Zoe electric city auto a 41-kWh battery for a 250-mile (400-km) range, Renault is showing the EV's sporty side at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The ZOE e-sport concept proves the French carmaker sees no reason why a battery-powered auto can't be seriously swift, too.
Plenty of aerodynamic trickery is woven into the all-carbon body. What we have here is an all-electric small sports auto with all-wheel-drive and huge 20 inch wheels. Also, the bumpers, lip spoiler and headlight/air intake surrounds feature a carbon fiber finish.
With this powertrain technology on-board, Renault claims the ZOE e-sport manages 0-62mph in 3.2 seconds, and it takes less than 10 seconds to reach its limited top speed of 130mph.
Renault has a history of using its Renaultsport department to create insane concept cars, and at this year's Geneva Motor Show the company has followed up the mad Espace F1 and Twizy F1 with a new ZOE concept using the firm's Formula E technology. To keep the motors and battery cooled Renault has used the same air and water cooling system it has developed for its Formula E team.

Inside, the two Recaro bucket seats have been created to offer maximum grip during high-speed cornering, while the racing harnesses and rectangular steering wheel draw inspiration from Renault's experience in the electric Formula E racing series.
There are four driving modes available here, include one that helps conserve battery power by adjusting the power output and distribution of torque.
For the E-sport to make such a significant amount of power it has to carry around a 450kg battery, 160kg more than the standard vehicle. Additionally, the vehicle gets larger brakes, a flat floor and a rear diffuser to go along with the other changes. 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.
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". The suspension is racing inspired and features Ohlins adjustable dampers.
