Renault teases 'F1 inspired' electric car

Mention ‘electric car’ and most people fall asleep.

Mention Formula 1 however, and things are a little different.

So how would you react if we told you Renault is building an EV using Formula 1 technology?


We are, but sadly, we can’t give you any more details.

Renault is remaining tight lipped about its new project, releasing only this shadowy teaser image and an even more cryptic message.

“This prototype vehicle, which features muscular styling and impressive performance credentials, provides a bridge between the world of Formula One and that of electric vehicles. It's a concept car that will make a lot of noise... but, in total silence."

So Renault is building an F1-inspired EV. Happily, we won’t have to wait long to see it, as the French company is revealing the new concept in Spain tomorrow.

We’ll keep you posted.
