Renault ZOE RS is a realistic option?
This little electric car is not the most exciting in the world, but there is something else interesting about it. Namely, when it was presented at the Geneva Motor Show, this car, which had no emission of harmful gases, had two electric motors that together produced 460 horsepower and an incredible 640 Nm of torque.
As it turned out, the Renault Sport Department is considering to make this model with even better performance that would carry the RS designation. According to the head of that department, Patris Rati, they are thinking about this model because of the development in battery technology and it will be necessary to do a lot of analysis before the plan is put into operation.
If it gets a green light, this little one will have to suffer some changes in the chassis and batteries, compared to the concept. If the performance is as good as the concept of the car, it will be a real little electric beast.
