Renault has set a new standard for the ecars sector, with its ZOE having achieved the world record for the longest distance travelled in 24 hours by a production electric car.
ZOE recently completed 363 laps of the Aubevoye speed ring in Normandy, a distance of 1,618km, besting the previous record (1,280km) by some 25%.
Two Renault ZOEs set out on the speed ring at the Aubevoye technical centre (CTA) in Normandy on Friday June 1st at 4pm, with 15 drivers taking turns at the wheel, driving and charging as necessary.
The ZOEs crossed the finishing line 24 hours later having covered distances of 1,618km and 1,506km.
According to a Renault spokesman, the record clearly demonstrates the car’s performance and reliability, and in particular its “best-in-class range and revolutionary Caméléon charger”.
