At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, Renault is celebrating its leadership on the European electric vehicles market by unveiling Zoé Swiss Edition, an upmarket limited edition of its electric city car. We took the opportunity to ask Eric Feunteun, head of Renault’s electric vehicles programme, about Groupe Renault developments on the zero-emissions scene.
The latest addition to the Zoé line-up is Zoé Swiss Edition, a fabulously chic special edition unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show on 1 March 2016. It prefigures a top-end version of Zoé set for release toward the end of the year.
The climate change summit just closed its doors in Paris, during which 195 nations signed the historic Paris Agreement on Climate Change to keep temperature rise well below 2 degrees Celsius objective.

At Renault we are convinced that in only two letters we have the solution in the automotive industry to fight climate change: EV (electric vehicle). Since a couple of years a great progress has been made in the EV domain and today's EV range perfectly responds to the need of most car users. Still a certain number of questions remains regarding the infrastructure and investment needed when switching for an EV. To answer to most frequently asked questions we have met with Thomas Orsini, head of business development for electric vehicles at Renault.
How can low-emission vehicles contribute to the French energy transition and the national low-carbon strategy? What are the benefits for the economy, and under what conditions? How can France and its territories improve air quality? In order to discuss these questions, the project “En route pour un transport durable” brought together industry and civil society. Renault was among those representing the automotive industry to provide a valuable expertise on technological aspects. The work has helped quantify the likely impact on the French economy of the transition towards more energy-efficient light-duty vehicles, principally fuelled by electricity from renewable energies and by hydrogen.
For the first time Renault and The Mobility House allow their drivers to take financial advantage of a dynamic electricity tariff and gives the reducing costs and earn money with electric vehicles in the grid by automatically charging vehicles at lowest electricity cost. A bright future for all Renault Zero Emission vehicle drivers.

As guest members of ZE ZOE TEAM in the sixth Monte-Carlo ZENN Rally (for Zero Emission No Noise), we could hardly have hoped for a better finish. There were four ZOEs in the first four places. And as well as claiming a podium position, our little team of bloggers (from AUTOcult.fr and Automobile-Propre.com) also won the low consumption trophy in this FIA international championship event!
