According to the head of the division of Renault electric vehicles, Gilles Normand, in recent times, sports cars are becoming so popular so fast that consumers are waiting for brands to offer battery models in all categories.
Normand has confirmed that Renault is evaluating the requirements to launch a high-performance electric car, with several groups focused on assessing its future demand. According to the executive, the most significant problems would be a lower autonomy than a standard electric, as well as the lack of sound, an element that is highly appreciated by lovers of high-performance vehicles.
It is unlikely that the Renault ZOE will be chosen to receive an RS sports version, as it is planned that it will only continue for sale for three years. Therefore, it is quite possible that Renault’s first electric sports car is a derivative of the urban SUV that the company will launch next year.
