ZOE in Paris

Although ZOE sounds like COE, they are entirely different. One is a piece of paper while the other is an electric vehicle in the making.

Following last year's ZOE Z.E. coupe, Renault took the opportunity at the Paris Show to show off the ZOE, which presents a more realistic look at the production version that will be available in 2012. Wearing Renault's newest face, it may also preview the next Clio as well.

Similar in size to the Clio, this little electric automobile gets some high-end passenger comfort technology that may show up in the production model (Renault claims 90% of what you see here is what you'll get). To pamper the occupants, the ZOE has a humidity-regulating climate control system with an integrated toxicity sensor and scent diffuser. It also provides "light therapy", which is being co-developed with Philips.

The concept seen here is 4.1 meters long and rides on 19-inch wheels. For production, dimensions are going to be similar, but expect those wheels to be replaced by smaller ones. Power comes from an 80-horsepower electric motor that makes 222 Nm of torque.

A charge will take from 6 to 8 hours and can be done in two different ways: either with a wall box that you connect to your home's outlet, or by the optional EVSE (Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment). Renault recommends the wall box method for the sake of convenience.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
