Renault ZOE Declared Green Apple Pure Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Champion 2017

November 8th, 2017 by  

Renault ZOE wins again. Environmental accolades come naturally to Europe’s well-loved Renault ZOE. The ZOE is the top-selling 100% electric car in Europe, so is readily suited to win once again the Pure Electric and Hybrid Cars Green Apple Champion, hosted by the Green Organisation for the third time.

The green organization’s ceremony took place at the Houses of Parliament. Renault ZOE taking first is no surprise since European owners have already voted for the Renault ZOE with their dollars. You are more likely to see a ZOE than any other electric car if you travel through Europe today. Renault continues: “Praised and owned widely for its environmental credentials, commitment to an electric future and its affordability, judges from the Midland Group of Motoring Writers voted for it once again.”

Drivers choose Renault ZOE as an excellent affordable choice. One in six electric vehicles sold in the UK choose the ZOE these days.

Renault does not rest. Energetic as ever, Renault is helping to drive us into the future. CleanTechnica earlier reported, “As part of its newly unveiled ‘Drive The Future 2017–2022’ plans, Groupe Renault is aiming to bring 8 all-electric vehicle models and 12 electrified vehicle models to market by 2022, according to a new press release.”

Here’s more of the new Renault press release for more:

Marks were awarded by the judges for the way a car drives and behaves in the real world, away from the testing laboratory. The Renault ZOE, unveiled in 2016 with an uprated battery, provides up to 250 miles of range from one charge (NEDC) — the longest of any mainstream electric car. Renault estimates that the ZOE has a real-world range of between 186 miles in temperate conditions and 124 miles in extremely cold conditions.

One of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers said of the ZOE: “I’ve chosen it because it has charm, an excellent interior and its new extended range of 180-miles plus makes it an option for a wider group of motorists.”

Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Groupe Renault UK, said: “The Renault ZOE is a stylish, affordable and practical all-electric car, perfect for those who are looking to improve on their carbon footprint. We’re delighted that the ZOE has been recognized by the Green Organisation and Midland Group of Motoring Writers for its environmental credentials for the third consecutive time – a popular opinion given the number of awards ZOE has received since launch.”

The Renault ZOE is a part of Renault’s electric vehicle range made up of the Twizy and Kangoo Van Z.E. The ZOE is priced from £14,245 (after PiCG plus battery lease) in a choice of three trim levels and can be purchased either outright or by leasing the battery.

More Awards for ZOE:

The Renault ZOE is What Car?’s Best Electric Car 2017 and is a four-time winner of What Car?’s ‘Best Electric Car for less than £20,000’.

ZOE was named as one of Autocar’s Game Changers earlier this year and is Parker’s Best Eco Car of the Year 2018.

The Green Organisation, based in Northamptonshire, was established in 1994 as an international, independent, non-profit, non-political, non-activist environment group, dedicated to recognizing, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world and invites entries from all parts of the industry for its annual Green Apple Awards.
