Zero Emissions Day provides the perfect opportunity for people to celebrate human innovations while reflecting on how they can contribute further in helping ensure a more sustainable world,” said company CEO, Kuan Kim Luen. “To embrace this movement, we believe that environmental-friendly Malaysians will value and take advantage of this exclusive offer to own the Renault Zoe and be part of the change in creating a more eco-friendly world.” Renault’s solution to Zero Emission mobility “The Zoe is a compact five-door hatchback with sleek, fluid lines that embodies both a sense of breakthrough technology and core automotive styling cues. It was designed from the ground up as a pure-electric vehicle and emits no CO2, NOx, CO or fine particles. It also signals the disappearance of unpleasant smells and “engine” noise during road use. “Its agile, dynamic looks express driving enjoyment. 16-inch alloy wheels and contemporary proportions combined with sculpted volumes make the Zoe a reassuring and captivating car. “On the inside, the Zoe reflects its modern, ‘eco’ character, with a bright colour scheme evocative of purity. The dashboard moulding has been designed to resemble the blade of a wind turbine. Acceleration and pull-away of the Zoe are responsive from low speeds while driving is more relaxing thanks to the silent ride and smooth, gearshift-free acceleration.
