Its about time that someone release an electric car that was not as fugly as hell. We have always asked, why not just make an electric vehicle look like any other normal vehicle on the market. Thank god Renault has some sense with their upcoming model, Zoe a 5 door city car

Zoe will feature Renault’s OptimiZEr system which will boost the vehicles range by almost 25%, allowing a range of 250km per charge. And unlike some of the current electric cars, Zoe charge time is quick too.Patented by Renault, the Chameleon charger adapts to the power supply available, single- phase or three-phase, up to 43 kW. Renault ZOE can thus charge its battery to a level of 80% in 60 minutes.

Zoe’s homologated range is 250km. This can vary in the same way as a petrol/diesel car according to topography, driving style and weight carried. Figures for 0-50 is in 4 seconds, the most used acceleration used in cities with 0-100 stated at 13.5 seconds. and a top speed is 135 kmh. ZOE features an electric engine with a wound rotor putting out 65 kW or 87 hp. This allows instant acceleration and pick-up even at low revs, thanks to the 220 Nm peak torque available at full force from just 250 rpm.

It started at a young age with bedroom posters, the Countach of course. This slowly grew into a super car die-cast model collection, fifty five 1:18 models at the last count. At which point it had almost taken full control, the incurable Mad Car Disease ran deep though my veins all the way to the bone. And things for my loved ones just got worse as the cars where now being bought at 1:1 scale, after a BMW, HSV, and couple of Audi's, the disease reached my brain, pushing me over the edge and down the rabbits hole into the world of the bedroom poster.
