Four Renault ZOE models are competing in the 6th ZENN Monte-Carlo Rally on March 20 to 22. ZOE is putting its title on the line to once again prove that electric power can combine environmental concerns and automotive passion.
The 6th ZENN Monte-Carlo Rally (ZENN being short for “zero emissions, zero noise”) is a prestigious motorsport competition open exclusively to electric cars with a range of under 250 km.
Like its renowned parent competition, the Monte-Carlo Rally, the ZENN Rally is run in the Principality of Monaco . Competing in regularity events and stopping off at charging stations, the drivers will snake along the famous winding roads of Col de la Madone, Saint-Agnès, Breil-sur-Roya and Sospel.
Visitors from around the world will attend the race starts and finishes at the Port of Monaco . They will also get the chance to visit the “electric” village featuring a range of exhibitions, vehicle test drives and special installations on the theme of tomorrow’s automobile and sustainable development. A manoeuvrability contest will also be held on the morning of March 22 at the southern harbor of the Port of Monaco .
ZOE has sold in over 21,000 units worldwide since launch in 2013, with sales rising a full 54% in Europe in 2014. Already the benchmark vehicle in terms of performance and range, ZOE will be fitted with an all-new, 100% Renault engine at the end of spring.
