Uniquely, the Renault ZOE e-Sport Concept is built on a ZOE platform and converted into a racing car, drawing on Groupe Renault's three years of winning experience in the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile) Formula E Championship, an all-electric single-seater series. Formula E is beloved for its format charting courses in the centre of major cities around the world and providing an accessible way for the general public to see high-performance electric racing.
  • The ZOE e-Sport Concept features sporty styling and the same body colour as the latest Renault e.dams single-seaters.
  • The bodywork of the ZOE e-Sport Concept concept car, which tips the scales at 1,400 kilograms, including the battery (450kg), is made entirely from carbon fiber.
  • The ZOE e-Sport Concept accelerates from standstill to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds.
Visually, the ZOE e-Sport Concept stands out through its expressive design: a ZOE with extreme sporting prowess.

The ZOE e-Sport Concept Formula E affiliation is immediately apparent thanks to a colour scheme inspired by the reigning champion Renault e.dams team's 2016/2017 livery. The ZOE e-Sport Concept dominant colour is Satin Blue. It features flashes of yellow on the door mirror housings, as well as for the front and rear bumper beading. There is a carbon fiber finish for the bumpers, lip spoiler and headlight/air intake surrounds.

Traditional Renault styling cues, plus elegant flourishes from higher-end high-performance models: The headlights carry over the C-shape design that has become a hallmark of the latest Renault models. The prominent vertically-mounted Renault front and rear diamond logos stand out through their size and backlighting, similar to Renault TreZor, the concept car unveiled at last October's Paris Motor Show. The ZOE e-Sport Concept doors are opened by a simple tap on the 'open' zone which incorporates tactile sensors. The ZOE e-Sport Concept is fitted with diamond-cut aluminium alloy Sport wheels. Contrasting angles form a core element of their design, highlighted by a two-tone finish in black and Shadow Chrome. These rims come with a central locking nut. The ZOE e-Sport Concept has extra-tinted windows.

The ZOE e-Sport Concept structure: both fast and sticks to the road. The ZOE e-Sport Concept weighs just 1,400 kg, including the battery, thanks to the design of its chassis and the materials selected. Like the Renault e.dams Formula E single-seater, the ZOE e-Sport Concept s bodywork is made from carbon fiber. The ZOE e-Sport Concept Sport Concept is extremely efficient aerodynamically, thanks to a spoiler positioned below the front bumper, a flat bottom, a Formula E-inspired diffuser and a large, carbon fiber tailgate spoiler with a linear braking light. The chassis features a tubular steel roll cage with protective Kevlar panels. It complies with FIA safety standards and means the ZOE e-Sport Concept can be used at race tracks.

The ZOE e-Sport Concept inside: a driving position that is ideal for track driving. The ZOE e-Sport Concept has two RECARO bucket seats equipped with competition harnesses. The rectangular steering wheel gives drivers a broader field of vision, like that enjoyed by Renault's Formula E drivers. As in Formula E, the driver can adjust the powertrain settings and control energy consumption. The dash panel features three zones that permit management of the gearbox, driving mode (four options available) and brake distribution. Buttons on the control panel are dedicated to the control of the five lighting functions. The colours and materials chosen for the cabin express the car's sport pedigree. Black is the dominant colour, with a few splashes of blue and - notably for the controls - aluminium. The seats, steering wheel and door panels are trimmed with overstitched Alcantara.
