The Renault DeZir is an electric concept car that was first officially presented at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The car is a 2 seat coupe with butterfly doors, and the interior is of red leather. The concept's butterfly doors open like a conventional-butterfly door on the driver's side and a suicide-butterfly door on the passenger's side. 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).
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.
The DeZir concept appears in the new "Photo-Finish Pack" for the racing game Driveclub, available for free. It is also available on the racing games Asphalt 8: Airborne on iOS, Android, Windows 8 and 10 devices; and Real Racing 3 on iOS, Android devices.
