DeZir Electric Car From Renault


French automaker Renault claims that that the "DeZir is proof that environmental concern and a love for cars are by no means incompatible."

Unveiled in July, the all-electric car has plenty of upside: a range of 99 miles and a zero-to-sixty time just over five seconds. The downside? It's only a concept car, meaning that it's one of those look-but-can't-drive situations. But we can dream, right?
