In an effort to demonstrate the credibility of Renault’s offering in the electric vehicle market, Renault has opened the Renault Z.E. (Zero Emission) Centre in Boulogne-Billancourt, France, Paris, the first electric vehicle education and experience centre to be opened in Europe by a vehicle manufacturer. The Renault Z.E. Centre was officially opened in late December by Carlos Tavares, Chief Operating Officer of Renault, and Pierre-Christophe Baguet, Mayor of Boulogne-Billancourt. Its aim is to share the Z.E. experience with all visitors in order to demonstrate the credibility of Renault’s offering and the relevance of Renault’s leadership ambitions in electric vehicles.

The Renault Z.E. centre is based on the concept of a customer journey. Visitors enter the reception area and are given a comprehensive briefing on the electric vehicle world; including the vehicle, battery, charging infrastructure and new services. This is followed by an educational tour of the showroom and an opportunity to test drive Kangoo Z.E., Fluence Z.E. and Twizy (pre-production) on a test track dedicated to electric vehicles.

From January 2012, the Renault Z.E. Centre will be open to the general public.
