Green gets mean in Renault Zoe e-Sport Concept

Posted March 09, 2017

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.

Called the ZOE e-sport, it's a radical two-seat interpretation of Renault's all-electric city vehicle, boasting an aggressive, angular, wide bodykit, a colour scheme in homage to the Renualt e.dams Formula E team, and most importantly a four-wheel-drive powertrain borrowing Formula E technology. Huge centre-lock 20-inch wheels shod in 245/35 R20 tyres cover some suitably large brakes.

Even so, the Zoe e-Sport will still sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, which is 10.3 seconds than a regular Zoe. Also, the bumpers, lip spoiler and headlight/air intake surrounds feature a carbon fiber finish.

Beyond the lighter body, the e-Sport benefits from a Formula E powertrain with 456 hp (345 kW) and 472 lb.ft (350 Nm) of torque.

Patriots Seeking Two First Round Picks For Jimmy Garoppolo
Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network says the Patriots might be looking for two first round picks in exchange for Garoppolo. In those two games, he completed 42 of 60 passes (70 percent) for 498 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions.

The go-faster theme continues inside the cabin - accessible by simply tapping on a designated area - where Renault has installed a pair of Recaro bucket seats with racing harness and controls inspired by those found inside a Formula E vehicle.

So far so good, and it gets even better when we talk about the car's electric powertrain, which is powered by the same electric motor from the Formula E race vehicle.

Four driving modes allow drivers to adjust the balance and bias towards power conservation or outright performance via a dash-mounted panel.

Based on the latest iteration of the Zoe, the e-Sport Concept plays on the brand's Formula E connection for more performance and some more aggression in the looks department.

The Providence Journal reported that Haley lived at 21 Opechee Drive, Barrington, and Williams lived in East Providence. Authorities arrived at the scene and rushed both women to Rhode Island Hospital in nearby Providence.

The body makes extensive use of carbon fibre to keep weight down to 1400kg, 450kg of which is the battery.

Due to the new chassis structure, the standard MacPherson strut front and torsion beam rear suspension setup have been replaced with double-wishbones all around.

The Zoe e-sport concept is strictly a two-seater, and the interior is stripped out, with an F1-inspired squared-off steering wheel, a minimalist dashboard, and racing seats trimmed in grippy microsuede. They are accompanied by four-way adjustable Ohlins dampers to match.
