Renault previously toyed with the idea of a performance-oriented electric vehicle when it presented the DeZir Concept at the 2010 Paris motor show, but now the French car maker has promised to reveal a serious high-performance EV at its Valladolid plant in Spain later this week.
Renault has beed downright cryptic in the lead-up to car’s unveiling except to say that it will boast “muscular styling and impressive performance credentials”.
It has also indicated its latest concept “provides a bridge between the world of Formula 1 and that of electric vehicles”.
It could be a new Alpine concept, building on the design of last year’s dramatic V6-powered A110-50 concept, although apart from the above image, Renault is offering nothing further until Thursday April 25.
