In the French town of Appy, all residents will drive Renault ZOE


Renault has announced an interesting project to allow an entire city in France to go electric! This takes place in the town of Appy in the Ariège region in the south of the country.All the inhabitants (there are only 25 according to Wikipedia) will drive Renault ZOE over the next three years in a new pioneering program.

Since Appy is one of the most isolated towns in France, ZOE with its relatively high range of up to 390 km (242 miles) from WLTP, should meet all needs.

The French city goes 100% electric with a new Renault Zoe for all residents

All households will benefit from home charging points. To facilitate electrification, there will also be a public charging station, although we don’t expect it to even be necessary.

“Appy residents will lead the ZOEs for three years, sharing their impressions and experiences with Renault, as part of a first program that will inform and possibly help understand how customers interact and use electric vehicles on a daily basis. the day. If people in one of the country’s most isolated cities can embrace an electric lifestyle, it’ll prove that anyone can. It also means that the myths around buying and driving an electric car can be dispelled once and for all. “

We don’t know the details of the deal, but it’s obvious that the more isolated the area, the better suited it is to switch to electricity. Daily autonomy needs are low, and in the case of ZOE, there’s no problem getting out of town when needed.

Hopefully residents will remain 100% 100% electric, even beating Norway in EV share, also after the initial three-year trial period.
