Renault is poised to offer a ‘get you home’ guarantee on its electric vehicles
16 March 2011

Renault is poised to offer a ‘get you home’ guarantee on its electric vehicles.

The deal will assume a journey was within realistic reach of the Fluence, Zoe or Twizy — but the car has run out of juice because of traffic jams, diversions or inclement weather that forces the use of air-con, lights and wipers.

Renault's EV strategy in detail

Renault plans to offer owners a replacement vehicle in such cases — but it’s still debating how many times the customers will be able to call upon the back-up in any given year.

The Twizy is getting three times as many enquiries as the Kangoo and Fluence. Renault still hopes the quadricycle will be eligible for eco rebates in selected European countries.

Driven this week

  • Citroën C3 Aircross
    First Drive
    17 October 2017
    It's got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
  • Audi Q7 e-tron
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Expensive and flawed but this understated diesel-electric Audi Q7 has a lot to offer
  • Citroën C3
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Is the third gen Citroën C3 ‘fresh and different’ enough to take on its supermini rivals? We spend six months with one to find out
  • BMW X3
    First Drive
    15 October 2017
    A satisfying rework of the X3 that usefully improves its handling, cabin finish, space and connectivity to make this BMW a class front-runner again
