Renault has tried its hand at making convertibles before, but demand has never been outstanding. The problem, we think, is that you need a premium image to justify higher prices usually associated with drop-top. Even though they put their engines in a lot of Mercedes cars and vans, Renault doesn't have the posh look.
But what about this thing, a Renault Zoe EV that's been made into a Cabriolet? The little Zoe is among the cheapest EVs in production, but it's still expensive. An extra €1,000 added to that price tag in exchange for a convertible roof would not hurt at all.

The advantages of a convertible EV are pretty obvious. Since there's no internal combustion engine, the only noises you'll hear will come from the wind and the tires. It would be like driving a really big skateboard!

Last week, Renault asked via one of its Facebook pages if people would want such a car to be built. Theophilus Chin took that idea and created a rendering of what it might look like. From a five-door hatch, Zoe is now a two-door with a slightly more rakish roof.

Despite looking like a small car, the Zoe is actually the same size as the Clio it's based on. Power comes from an 88 PS electric motor and a battery that promises up to 210 of driving range.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
