Z.E. stands for Zero Emissions and is the Renault designation for a fully electric vehicle, i.e. no exhaust pipe. Renault is big on electric vehicles, and their plans for the near future are becoming clearer.
Not that you’d call a car cute but the exception has to be the Renault e-Plain Air concept which is based on the original Renault 4L. It was built by Renault Classic, Renault Design and Melun Retro Passion for the 10th anniversary of the Renault 4L festival. It was on display at the international festival between 19 and 21 July turning heads every which way..
Groupe Renault has always been a forward-thinking car manufacturer and leads Europe’s efforts in developing electric vehicles. Electric mobility is, after all, the core of their strategy. If they weren’t already ahead, the recent agreements signed with EDF, Total and ENEL cements their place in pole position.
When it comes to innovation, Groupe Renault takes great pride in staying ahead of the curve. As such, our international counterparts’ recent trailblazing collaboration with the ADA in Paris does not come as a surprise. By pooling their respective resources, Renault France and the local vehicle rental agency will be giving Parisians the option of getting around using a short-term, E-vehicle car-sharing service.
Come rain or shine or snow, Renault will deliver! At least, that is what South Korea’s Postmaster-General has set out to prove. Perhaps the quirkiest commercial car on the road today, the Renault Twizy is not something we would ever expect to see, rubbing shoulders with South African bakkies and jeeps. But the miniscule electric runabout might be exactly what Seoul’s post office needs.
