Tour of electric vehicles

The Z.E. European Tour 2011 will stop in six French cities. After Spain, the first country on the tour, Renault will arrive in Bordeaux on May 31.

A test center will be set up in priority for Renault’s invited guests, i.e., members of the public who reserved a Fluence Z.E or a Kangoo Z.E. on, plus professionals,

Guests will also be able to attend thematic workshops about the Z.E. charging stations, range, connected services, engine and battery.

The entire Renault Z.E. range will have travelled across 11 European countries in seven months, bringing all those visiting the test drive centers the chance to discover the driving pleasure provided by our electric cars with lithium ion batteries (1,000 visitors are expected in France).

Renault is organizing this operation to give potential customers a chance to preview Renault’s electric car with lithium ion batteries in real-life driving conditions ahead of its launch.

Renault is supplying six electric vehicles – 3 Fluence Z.E.* and 3 Kangoo Z.E. models – for guests to test-drive on the open road and in the city, i.e., in real-life conditions. Anyone who reserves a vehicle on will have an opportunity to drive the vehicle of their choice for four kilometers, accompanied by an expert who can answer any questions. If there are any time slots left, test-drives will also be offered to members of the public who have not reserved. The plan is to schedule about 100 test-drives a day in France.

Educational thematic workshops will be held to inform potential customers about the charging stations, range, connected services, the engine and the battery. The four Renault Z.E. models that have already been revealed to the public – Fluence Z.E., Kangoo Z.E., Twizy and ZOE PREVIEW (except in Marseille) – will be on display nearby. Experts from the Renault Z.E. team will be on hand to answer any questions.
