2011 has been a historic year for us. Renault Fluence Z.E. and Renault Kangoo Z.E., the first two electric vehicles for all, were officially launched. After 3 years of work, we’re extremely proud of what’s coming up in 2012. In just a few months, the Renault Z.E. family will welcome Renault Twizy and Renault ZOE, both of them are solutions to drive the future.
What are your New Year’s resolutions? Is one of them to drive electric? Here’s 5 good reasons why it should be:
Reason n°1 > Reinventing driving pleasure
Zero emission of CO2, no carcinogenic gases, no acid-producing gases. Just strong acceleration and a smooth drive all in beautiful silence. In 2012, do something for the environment while re-discovering what driving pleasure really means.
Reason n°2 > Make your daily car commutes easier
Did you know that 87% of car journeys never exceed 60km a day. That means with a Fluence ZE you’d only need to charge every couple of days, and when you do need to, you can do it easily at home. In 2012 you’ll love electric journeys without stress.
Reason n°3 > No more painful visits to the petrol station
Last time you went to the petrol station, you were this close to a nervous breakdown, weren’t you? In 2012, don’t let your money go up in smoke. You’ll love charging your car with electricity for only 2€ (while you sleep easily at night)
Reason n°4 > Take care of our planet for future generations
Choosing a zero-emission car is a commitment to sustainable mobility. This is what we believe in. In Europe, from well to wheel, Renault Fluence Z.E. pollutes 40% less than the “cleanest” hybrid car. In France, this statistic reaches 87%. In 2012, you’ll love taking care of our planet.
Reason n°5 > Pick the vehicle that fits you within a complete range of electric cars
With Renault ZOE coming up in Autumn 2012 to complete the range, you’re sure to find a Renault Z.E. made for you. In 2012, buy a car which designed to meet your needs, with your comfort in mind, and that is, of course, 100% respecting the environment.
