The world premiere of Renault’s compact electric hatch called ZOE saw Carlos Ghosn personally unveil the vehicle as he drove onto the Renault stand. With its dynamic looks and the latest technology, ZOE marks a new era in electric mobility. Commenting on the Alliance’s zero-emission vehicles, Ghosn said “Only now are we seeing EVs that represent a ‘compelling offer’ – cars that are priced in the same range as others with the same or better capacity and amenities. I’m very confident that in the next three to four years, you’re going to see a revolution in terms of EV charging.” Of course, no launch is complete without celebrity endorsement so Renault was pleased to announce that Twizy - the small electric quadricycle - is joining forces with renowned DJ David Guetta as part of the vehicle’s 2012 brand campaign. The partnership is great news for Renault as Guetta is a pioneer and like Twizy, he sets trends and is a symbol of fun and freedom. With these shared values, the partnership will give Twizy international star status.
