Renault DeZir: 'leccy sex machine
Sounds about right, for once.Renault says the DeZir will have a 160km (100m) range before recharging, a process that will take eight hours when juice is applied "using a conventional household plug". If you have the benefit of a 400V three-phase current line, the DeZir can get to an 80 per cent charge in 20 minutes.
Very hot looking car! Might give Roadster some competition if Renault increased the range to 200.

Lots more Renault concepts here, many of which inspired later production cars.
