Renault ZOE Best Electric in Futurecar Run

In the annual Brighton to London RAC Future Car Challenge on Saturday 3rd November the Renault ZOE won Most Energy Efficient Small Car and the Best Pure Electric Vehicle.

Renault collected four awards in total, winning categories for the ZOE supermini and Kangoo Van Z.E. as well as scooping the overall prize. 

The event, sponsored by RAC Motoring Services was first introduced in 2010 to showcase low energy use vehicles. It features competitors driving electric, hybrid, hydrogen and low-emission conventional petrol and diesel cars on a 63-mile route from Brighton to London, using the least amount of energy as possible. The event is a real-world test of current and future vehicle technology. 

ZOE, Renault’s new 100% electric supermini won the categories of Most Energy Efficient Small Car and the Best Pure Electric Vehicle.  Kangoo Van Z.E. won the Most Energy Efficient Light Commercial Vehicle category.  Against a wide range of competition including fully electric, hybrid and hydrogen vehicles, ZOE won the overall RAC Future Car Challenge for a production car.

Andy Heiron, UK Head of Electric Vehicles Programme, said, “I’m delighted to have won four out of 19 categories.  We’re the only manufacturer offering such a wide range of fully electric vehicles to cover the main market sectors and appeal to both retail and business buyers. Our current three-model range has already been attracting a lot of interest, especially the unique Twizy. The proof of the pudding though is trying them out. We’re confident that after experiencing the refined and responsive driving experience of a purely electric vehicle, combined with the financial and environmental benefits of switching to an electric vehicle, potential buyers will be smitten.” 

Orders are now being taken for the Renault ZOE, priced from £13,650, with UK deliveries from Spring 2013.
