Winner of the 2014 ZENN Monte-Carlo Rally, the Renault ZOE, has done it again, finishing first in the overall standings at the 2015 ZENN Monte-Carlo Rally.
The five-door electric supermini dominated the prestigious international competition, with four ZOE’s coming first, second, third and fourth in the overall standings, as well as five coming in the top 5 consumption standings.
The sixth ZENN Monte-Carlo Rally (ZENN is short for zero emissions, zero noise), played host to electric cars with a range lower than 250km. The drivers competed in both timed and regularity events, with the cars making their ways around the snake-like crowds of Saint-Agnes, Breil-sur-Roya and Col de la Madone. The race began and ended at the Port of Monaco, with eight racing zones completed in total.
Renault had four teams representing them at the coveted event, among them a blogger car. After the two-day race had ended in the principality of Monaco, Renault’s five ZOEs scooped first, second, third, fourth and seventh place, whilst an individual team competing in an individual initiative came fourth. Renault had nothing but praise for the individual team, saying they were only too glad that their electric supermini was able to bring them success at the ZENN Rally.
The Renault ZOE has become known for its state-of-the-art design, with 98% of its customers praising this particular aspect. Other attributes it has been lauded for include best-in-class range, performance, driving pleasure and cutting edge technologies. Backed by a host of victories at the 2015 ZENN Monte-Carlo Rally, the Renault ZOE is once again in the limelight and has to go down as one of the world’s most in demand electric cars.
The Renault ZOE has sold almost 22,000 units, with sales doubling in Europe in 2014. A brand new engine is expected to be fitted by summer 2015.
