Manufacturers, rivals, take note: That’s how you get us on board. We don’t have to be martyrs. Zero-emission doesn’t have to mean zero-style, zero-fun, or, on the other end of the spectrum, zero-attainability. To Renault, we say this: Build it, before someone else does. A well set-up ZOE with 200bhp (the concept’s dizzying 400+ might be overkill), arches, attitude and so on.
Make it appeal to traditional hot hatch staples of fun and chuckability, while taking us into a new era of sustainable motoring. We promise it’ll go down a storm.
