The Renault DeZir is an electric concept that was first officially presented at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The car is a two seater coupé with butterfly doors, and the interior is of red leather. It features a 148 hp mid-mounted electric motor. This gives the concept rivalry with the Audi e-tron, with 0–60 mph (0–97 km/h) in just five seconds and a top speed of 112 mph (180 km/h).[1]

The DeZir is the first in a series of concept cars that are paving the way for Renault’s future both aesthetically and technologically. The series is modeled after the stages of life that a Renault customer might encounter. In Renault’s own words their customers will fall in love, discover the world, start a family, work, have fun and become wise. The DeZir concept symbolized the love stage, the Captur concept symbolized the discovery stage, the R-Space represented the family stage and the Frendzy represents the work stage.[2]
