Renault has released more details on their electric sports car, the DeZir, and from the photos it looks pretty cool. The best part about this new electric car is that it takes just 20 minutes to charge the batteries to 80 percent capacity, which is impressive.
The Renault Dezir is capable of travelling 100 miles about 160KM on a single charge, and it can accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in just five seconds, so it is a bit slower than the Tesla Roadster.
The fact that the batteries can be charged up so quickly could actually make this a very practical electric car, and if the technology can be transferred to other vehicles it certainly would make electric vehicles more popular as one of their drawback is the time it takes to recharge the batteries.
