French automaker Renault is updating its hot hatch for the coming electrified age. The automobile is called a "Turbo," and the "3E" indicates that it is the third generation in the Turbo series and is powered by electricity. This concept car is essentially a high-performance version of the Renault 5 Prototype that debuted at the beginning of last year.

The new R5 Turbo 3E has rear-wheel drive only. A 42 kWh lithium-ion battery pack was strategically placed in the center of the vehicle's floor, with two electric motors fitted, one for each of the vehicle's rear wheels.

According to the French manufacturer, the combined output of the two electric motors is 375 horsepower (280 kW) and 516 lb-ft of torque. You can go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds and on to 124 mph with that much power.

The Renault R5 Turbo 3E has a curb weight of 2,160 lb. without its 1,146 lb. battery pack, and it rides on 19-inch front and 20-inch rear wheels. In total, the weight of the electric hatch is 3,306 lbs. If you have a 380V/32A charger, it will take roughly two hours to completely recharge the battery.

Next month, at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, Renault will showcase the R5 Turbo 3E. The prototype will not be manufactured, but the company's performance subsidiary Alpine is developing a sportier variant of the electric Renault 5 car.
