Electric Cars: Red Dwarf's Kryten Reviews The Renault Zoe

This looks like a defining moment for electric vehicles. The Renault Zoe is both cheap enough to appeal to everybody - about half the price of previous electric cars - a level achieved by removing the price of the battery from the sale price; and manages to have the sort of range which is very usable day to day.

Renault have covered all the bases here, purchase costs, running costs, warranty, technology - even an rental car agreement for the times you need something bigger or with a longer range for those special occasions when the Zoe won't do - holidays, moving, etc.

I can see this turning out to be a real success, if the UK's drivers are prepared to approach it with an open mind.
