The Renault DeZir was officially unveiled at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. The DeZir uses butterfly doors and an interior of red leather. However, these butterfly doors are different from other cars in that the passenger door is hinged at the rear. The engine is a 148 hp mid-mounted electric motor capable of giving the DeZir the ability to propel itself to 60 mph in five seconds up to a top speed of 112 mph. As a result of these specifications, the Renault DeZir's competitors are the Audi R8 e-tron, DS Survolt, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive and the Rimac Concept One.
The Renault DeZir is one of the 11 new cars added in the Winter update.
The Renault DeZir is a Class D car, being slotted alongside the Renault CLIO R.S. 200 EDC. While having a relatively low starting rank of 514, the Renault DeZir has a maximum rank of 1153 and a final rank of 1262. With a starting-maximum rank difference of 639 points, and a further pro rank of 109, totalling 748, the Renault DeZir has one of the biggest gaps between the stock rank and final rank of any car to date. If a Tuning Kit is active, the DeZir effectively becomes one of the most powerful Class D cars. Adding a Tuning Kit gives 128 points to its rank, making its new final rank 1390, which is higher than the Ferrari 308 GTS' 1387 (1336+51). The Renault DeZir has the highest tuning kit bonus.
The Renault DeZir accelerates very fast for a Class D vehicle with the nitro activated. In fact, it has the second-fastest nitro boost of any electric vehicle in the game (63.9 mph); it also lasts quite long, unlike the Ford F-150, which has the biggest nitro boost of any vehicle in the game. In fact, the Renault DeZir has the second highest Level 2/Perfect Nitro and the highest Level 3 Nitro durations of any vehicle in the game, lasting longer than those of vehicles with a 17.7~26.6 mph (28.6~42.9 km/h) nitro boost like the McLaren P1, 9FF GT9 VMAX, Pagani Zonda R, and DS Survolt. As of now, the Rinspeed zaZen and Donkervoort D8 GTO now have the best nitro durations in the game. However, it handles worse than the CLIO R.S. 200 EDC, and it has a horrible top speed compared to other high-end Class D cars, even lower than that of a Dodge Dart GT, only at 240 kph at its highest rank with the Tuning Kit activated. But when MAX PRO and using nitro with a Tuning Kit activated, the top speed skyrockets to a high 362 kph. If enough nitro boosts are used, then the Renault DeZir can beat most almost all cars in its MP bracket. These stats make the DeZir a monster at MP, being able to beat just about anything provided that it is not upgraded past rank 1000, being regarded as OP by both new and veteran players alike (it faces defeat to the Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic due to the latter having a positive speed modification and also Shelby Cobra 427s, BMW M2s and Mercedes-Benz SLK 55 AMG Special Editions). For only 180, the car has by far the best value of any token car in the game; no matter your skill level or game progression, due to the car's reliance in MP in the rank 800 bracket and below, this car is a very worthy buy.
The Renault DeZir qualifies for the following events:
- Any event that uses Electric cars.
- Race 16 of Season 1 (Monkey's Year Update): A Classic event set in San Diego Harbor. Only Renault DeZirs can participate.
- Race 17 of Season 1 (Monkey's Year Update): A Versus event set in Barcelona, against the Renault CLIO R.S. 200 EDC.
'The Renault DeZir costs 180' to purchase and 703,000 to max out. By cost, the Renault DeZir is the cheapest token car. In terms of maxing it out, it is the fourth most expensive Class D car, after the Ferrari 308 GTS' 787,360, the BMW M3 Sedan's 2,059,330 and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X's 2,167,710.
