Renault ZOE named safest supermini of 2013

Renault ZOE named safest supermini of 2013

The Renault ZOE not only offers customers uncompromised fuel efficiency, but also quality safety features - with the latter confirmed by the latest annual Euro NCAP Safety round-up.

In it's latest 'best in class cars' tables, the vehicle safety authority named the ZOE as the best supermini when it comes to protecting drivers, passengers and pedestrians.

After tackling the extensive safety testing earlier this year, the ZOE came away with the top five-star rating from Euro NCAP.

As the car is an electric vehicle, it produces very little noise when it travels at low speeds. The addition of the Z.E. Voice feature helps to warn pedestrians and road users of the vehicle's approach when it is travelling between one and 18mph.

These sounds can also be altered, depending on the driver's preference - with options including Pure, Glam and Sport.

The car features a range of airbags and quality seat belts, while quality engineering has seen added protection for side-on impacts when out on the road.

It also comes with two side-impact detectors which help to increase response time to an impending collision.

The ZOE emits absolutely no carbon emissions, thanks to its all-electric drivetrain, making it a friendly and economical vehicle to drive around in. The car can cover between 62 and 93 miles before needing a charge, depending on weather and driving style.
