Renault has been a big supporter of electric vehicles and a new report is indicating Renault Sport is considering a high-performance EV.

Speaking to Car Advice, Renault Sport motorsport technical manager Francois Champod said “We are thinking about [electrification]" but the technology is “not mature.” He went on to say “I don’t know if we’ll go to pure electric" but hinted a hybrid variant could be feasible and is being considered.

Champod also revealed the company is watching the Formula E championship to determine "if it’s just a show or a high-level competition." If the latter scenario pans out, Renault Sport could build a race car to compete in the series.

For the time being, Champod said they aren't close to launching an electric vehicle because the "market does not exist" for one yet.
