Renault says the 50,000th example of its Zoe electric car has rolled off the production line at its specialist plant at Flins. The milestone vehicle was sold to a French buyer from Saint Cloud, Paris. Guillaume Berthier, Electric Car Sales and Marketing Director, presented the customer with the keys to her Zoe at Flins. Renault says it has found that 98 per cent of customers are satisfied with their electric vehicles.
