The Renault DeZir is one desirable looking car. The concept, which made its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show last fall, could enter production according to a senior insider at the company.

Originally, the concept was supposed to just give us a preview of the future design direction for Renault following the installation of Laurens van den Acker as new design head. However, the DeZir concept had such a strong reception in Paris, the Renault is seriously consider building it.

No final decision has been made yet, but Renault is looking for a business case to move forward. Renault may build the concept under the company’s Renaultsport sub-brand, which currently offers high-performance versions of the highly regarded Twingo, Clio and Megane hatchbacks.

Refresher: The DeZir Concept is an electric vehicle that is powered by an electric synchronous motor that sits in a mid-rear position to optimize weight distribution over the front and rear wheels. The motor gets its fuel from a 24kWh lithium-ion battery, which allows a driving range of 100 miles on a full charge (80 percent charge can be reached in 20 minutes). The DeZir makes a total of 150-hp and 167 lb-ft of torque, which allows it to go from 0-62 mph in 5 seconds with a top speed of 112 mph.
