Renault named ‘EV manufacturer of the year’

Electric Cars

Renault has been named Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year at the prestigious GreenFleet Awards. It’s the second time the brand has received the coveted trophy, following similar success in 2017.

The judges praised Renault’s commitment to making electric vehicle development, with the New ZOE leading the brand’s EV charge. With its 245 mile (WLTP) range, a completely new interior with recycled interior plastics and upholstery as well as excellent ownership costs, the pure electric hatchback sets new standards in its segment.

Speaking about Renault’s success Editor of Green Fleet News’ Angela Pisanu said:

“Standing out in a highly competitive category, Renault scooped the award for Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year for making electric mobility a realistic option for business users, with the ZOE able to achieve a 245 mile range. Coupled with the new Master Z.E. large van, as well as the existing zero-emission small van, the Kangoo Z.E 33, Renault offers electric powertrains across all vehicle segments, up to 3.5 tonnes.”

Renault also received commendations in the City Car and LCV categories, with New ZOE and New Master Z.E. respectively being recognised by the judges. Not only New ZOE the most affordable vehicle in its segment, its increased range makes it an attractive and realistic option for fleet users.

Groupe Renault Fleet Director Mark Dickens commented:

“We’re delighted to win Electric Vehicle Manufacturer of the Year at the Green Fleet Award for a second time. It once again demonstrates that Renault is a market leader in this sector, committed to delivering electric vehicles that appeal to both individual and corporate customers across the UK. New ZOE in particular demonstrates this approach, with its enhanced range, zero tailpipe emissions, low taxation and smooth, silent running making it an extremely attractive and cost effective option for many fleet customers.”

Renault’s range of EV models currently runs to the Twizy and New ZOE, with plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and hybrid (HEV) E-TECH versions of the All New Captur and All-New Clio due in 2020. The brand’s commercial fleet is equally extensive, with the Twizy Cargo, Kangoo Z.E. 33 and New Master Z.E. offering businesses a wide choice of zero tailpipe emissions vans.
