French town switches to all electric vehicles with Renault Zoe

The small town of Appy in France has switched to all electric vehicles after Renault has provided its Zoe to all residents free of charge as part of a three year trial.

All 11 households receiving a new Zoe will be provided with a home charger – just like all customers in the UK – and there will be a public charger for the town.

Appy residents will run the Zoes for three years, sharing their impressions and experiences with Renault, in a scheme that will inform and help understand the way customers interact with and use electric vehicles day to day. Residents can choose to purchase their Zoe at the end of the trial or hand the vehicle back to Renault.

Appy is an isolated town in the south of France and Renault believes the trial with the 245-mile range and DC rapid charging capability will help show that if residents there can make the switch to an EV, any driver can.
