Running until 19 October, the event will give customers the chance to test drive Renault’s growing line up of battery electric, E-TECH hybrid, and plug-in hybrid models.

This includes the Renault ZOE, Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle with a range of up to 245 miles and the ability to charge up to 80% in just one hour and ten minutes using its new 50kW DC charging option.

The all-new Clio E-TECH Hybrid, Renault’s first hybrid vehicle, can cover up to 80% of urban journeys on electric power alone.  The E-TECH powertrain always starts in electric mode, and provides and impressive 140hp despite emitting just 98g/km of CO2.  The same powertrain, this time in 160bhp form, powers the all-new Captur E-TECH Plug-in hybrid and new Megane Sport Tourer E-TECH Plug-in hybrid.

For commercial buyers, the event also include the new ZOE van, with its 245 mile range, the Master Z.E., and the Kangoo Z.E. with a choice of body lengths and Business and Business + trim levels.
