Previews The Zoe Electric Car

The electric Zoe is a Clio-sized supermini a range of up to 100 miles. It s still in the stages, but it will definitely go production and you ll be able to buy one in mid-2012. still, the final car won t lose of this one s va-va-voom, and it ll cost the same as a mid-spec Ford Who said electric cars t be desirable?

Not us!

The design

The Zoe s teardrop profile is by what s probably best as its friendly face. The sweeping blend seamlessly into the and the nose looks unusually because fewer air intakes are than on a petrol or diesel It s the first time we ve used new front end on a car that s going production, and we re getting some feedback , says Axel Renault s design director of and show cars. It proves is getting back to its best at emotive cars.

Remember the Mégane? Well, the Zoe is vaguely round the back, albeit and more fluid.

The concept is 90% ready for production, and describes it as an exaggerated version of the Zoe you ll be to buy in 18 months. The final car which be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor in September will be 5-7cm and narrower, but Renault assures us the look will be left

Renault is keen for a more look across its range, Simon Luque, deputy director of Zoe, says: We anyone who sees one of our cars to know it s a Renault, but we don t want to into the trap of, say, where you have to study model carefully to work out if you re at an A4, A6, or an A8.
