Just weeks after the all-new Renault Zoe was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the brand’s new hero has been spied testing Down Under.  A heavily camouflaged Renault Zoe was seen driving in both Melbourne and Perth accompanied by a team of Renault Z.E. technical experts.

Zoe is Renault’s solution to Zero Emission mobility for all. In addition to being a first class choice for everyday use and readily affordable, Zoe is Renault’s first pure-electric car to be designed from the ground up. Zoe is packed with the latest technology and boasts several world premieres geared to enhancing user-friendliness, range and connectivity.

The new Renault Zoe is the first mass-market electric vehicle to be homologated with an NEDC cycle range of 210 km, making it a practical alternative to an ICE vehicle for a very wide spectrum of users.

Commenting on the recent testing, Justin Hocevar, Managing Director of Renault Australia, said: “Renault is deeply committed to the success of electric vehicles and to the Australian market.  Globally, Renault is a leader in the development and mass-market roll out of affordable, accessible electric vehicles.
“The aim of testing the new Zoe in Australia is to ensure that we are responding to the specific demands of the Australian market – from daily driving range to cooling systems for our climate.

“Zoe represents the future of Renault.  It embodies our new design language, showcases our technological excellence and heralds a new era in motoring. And it has been designed to be as affordable as possible.
“I look forward to being able to offer Zoe to the Australian market in the future.”
