Renault Retail Group has switched its entire courtesy car fleet in England and Wales over to the fully-electric Renault Zoe E-Tech.
The move sees 143 courtesy cars spread across its 15 official Renault and Dacia dealerships in England and Wales replaced with the Zoe, with the new vehicles joining the existing 21 Zoe E-Tech’s that already exist on the 164-strong courtesy car fleet.
With each courtesy car travelling up to 5,000 miles a year, Renault says the decision will help customers and Renault Retail Group cut their carbon footprint and contribute to improving air quality in the local environment in which they work and live.
Each Zoe will be provided fully charged, offering a range of up to 245 miles (WLTP) on a single charge, and customers will receive a full introduction on the car’s features and its operation.
Ludovic Troyes, managing director of Renault Retail Group, said: “The 100 per cent electric Renault Zoe has been prominent in the EV market for nearly ten years, bringing zero-emissions motoring within the reach of everyone. By switching to electric courtesy cars, Renault Retail Group is giving all our customers the opportunity to experience the benefits of electric motoring, so they too can take advantage of affordable running costs whilst being kinder to the environment.”
Additionally, and to help attract more people to the advantages of electric vehicles, Renault Retail Group is now offering 48-hour test drives on the Zoe E-Tech, plus an array of finance packages that are designed to make switching to an EV as affordable as possible.
