Renault Zoom Electric City Car Concept 1992
Unveiled at the Paris Motor Show 1992, the Renault Zoom Electric City Car Concept is an urban and suburban concept car born of common research by Renault and Matra into modern electric car vehicles. More than just a perfect mini-sized city car, an ideal two seater urban runabout, the Renault Zoom Concept is a vehicle which is 100% in harmony with the modern city environment-friendly electric propulsion with a specific architecture designed to minimize the vehicle footprint.
Features: exterior architecture optimizes vehicle footprint, thereby helping ease urban traffic flows. Modular wheelbase is variable between 265 cm and 230 cm when the vehicle is stopped. Width remains constant at 152 cm which means that the Renault Zoom is 23 cm higher in retracted wheelbase configuration. Two beetle-wing doors mounted on 9°-inclined axes reduces lateral bodywork clearance to a minimum and make the Renault Zoom easy to use in the tightest spots.
The communication centre is mounted between the two seats housing hand-free telephone and power-up control for Carminat navigation system. CD-radio sound system is built into the steering wheel.
The 25 kW engine is 90 percent recyclable, contributing to the protection of the environment. Nickel Cadmium batteries allows for 150 km range. Top speed 120 kph and claimed 0 to 50 kph in 6 seconds. Total weight is 800 kg of which 350 are for the batteries.
