The record involved two Renault ZOE vehicles and fifteen drivers from Aubevoye, Cléon, Sandouville, Flins, Douai and Grand Couronne take turns at the wheel, driving and charging as necessary. Twenty-four hours later, the two ZOE vehicles cross the finishing line, with mileage of 1,618 km and 1,506 km respectively. Both models have fulfilled their promise with a demonstration of performance and endurance.
The finalist ZOE was fast-charged 18 times in 24 hours.
Renault ZOE will be priced from €15,700 and available in dealerships at the end of the year.
