Top Gear UK is citing a Renault insider who says future RS-badged models could adopt a hybrid setup.

When asked about the possibility of electrifying Renaultsport models, the insider said "I could see it happening in the future", adding that since all Formula E vehicles are from Renaultsport it would make sense to have an RS hybrid sometime in the future. He didn't specify an exact launch date so such a model is still several years away.

Sooner or later it will happen as Renault's EV product manager Ben Fletcher recently expressed his desire for a collaboration of his department with Renaultsport, adding that it "would be a really interesting project to be involved with, and a really interesting proposition to the customer."
