Think of electric cars and you may immediately recall the mid-sized Nissan Leaf or Vauxhall Ampera.

The supermini market is one of the largest car segments in the UK, and yet there has been no electric vehicle choice until now. Step forward the ZOE, Renault’s latest all‑electric vehicle. Designed from the ground-up as an EV, Renault says that it competes with its competitors (including its in-house Clio rival) on an equal footing.
