Zoe sets new world record


The Renault Zoe has set a new world record for the longest distance travelled in 24 hours by a production electric car.

The ZOE completed 363 laps of the Aubevoye speed ring in Normandy, a distance of 1,618 km, bettering the former record of 1,280 km by 25 per cent.

Two Renault ZOE vehicles set out on the speed ring at the Aubevoye technical centre (CTA) in Normandy. 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.
