What this means is that in a straight line, it's capable of hitting 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) from a standstill in just 3.2 seconds.
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.
Equipped with a pair of electric motors, the EV is capable of churning out 460hp and 472lb-ft. Bearing the Zoe E-sport moniker, this hunkered down Renault depicts the ultimate electric hot hatch interpretation. Like the Formula E racer, it uses high-capacity magnet technology created to maximize energy efficiency. A Formula E-inspired water and air-cooling system keeps the car's batteries at the optimum temperature.
Four driving modes allow drivers to adjust the balance and bias towards power conservation or outright performance via a dash-mounted panel.
Well, to compensate for that hefty battery pack, the Zoe's chassis has been replaced with a tubular steel structure, while the majority of the bodywork is made from carbon-fibre and Kevlar.

The blast, which took place as the train was about to reach Jabdi station, damaged the glass panes in the general coach.
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. Unsurprisingly that's quite a bit quicker than an ordinary Zoe - in fact, it's whopping 10.3sec faster. Additionally, the vehicle gets larger brakes, a flat floor and a rear diffuser to go along with the other changes. It will also accelerate to a top speed of 209 km/h but how is this possible?
The e-sport concept rides on 20-inch alloy wheels and has been lowered and widened compare to the regular Zoe.
For starters, Renault swapped the MacPherson-type strut front and torsion beam rear suspension for double wishbones all around.
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". With its minimalist interior, the ZOE e-sport straddles the line between serving as a road auto and racing machine.
