Not only was Fully Charged recently invited to test drive the Renault ZOE e-Sport Concept (see video here), but Car Throttle then got to give it a try without mercy.

It's great to see that the 340 kW ZOE e-Sport Concept, when pushed hard, brings a lot of fun to the driver.   In the end, it turns out to be as exciting as we thought it could be when Renault first unveiled the prototype in Geneva.

Car Throttle's Alex was positively surprised by the performance in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive modes.

Hopefully fan response will make Renault seriously consider upgrading the 65 kW version and offering the e-Sport.  We know we'd like to have one!
