Shortly after it emerged that Renault may kill off the Clio RS in favor of an all-electric Zoe RS, designer Kleber Silva has imagined what it might look like.
Representatives from the French company assert that it is no longer feasible to produce the Clio RS in its current form and that it makes more sense to instead develop a potent new version of the Zoe. Such a model could certainly look the part.
The Zoe RS pictured is painted in a very Clio RS-like bright shade of yellow and sports an aggressive new fascia that takes some design inspiration from 2017’s Zoe e-Sport Concept. As a result, there is a sharp yellow accent offset with a large faux grille and Renault Sport fog lights. Silva’s Zoe RS also includes wheels very similar to the Zoe e-Sport Concept.
As for the rear, it is as equally as aggressive as the front with a sharp bumper, a new diffuser and a fake central tailpipe. We’d be sad to see the Clio RS killed off, but if a Zoe RS looks as attractive as this, we just might get over it.
Renault is reportedly weighing up its options as to whether a future Zoe RS model should feature a larger electric motor at the front axle than the standard car or instead get a second electric motor to power the rear axle. If it eventually opts for a dual-motor setup, then the small EV could easily pump out more than 200 HP.
