RENAULT Zoe review

NGC verdict 08.07.2015

Next Green Car continues its series of electric car reviews with an extended test drive of the Renault ZOE Z.E. all-electric supermini.

The start of July brought with it the first wave of real summer weather to the West Country and Bristol. Rumours were abounding that the weekend would be a scorcher and I, like many optimistic sun-worshippers, decided that was enough to commit to a Saturday at the beach. This also gave me a prime opportunity to give our long-term press fleet Renault ZOE an extended test in warm weather, doing the type of journey that is repeated annually by numerous keen Britons when the sun comes out.
