Khodrocar - At the awards which look to recognise the best cars for new drivers, the Zoe was praised for its realistic range in real-world situations, value for money and simplicity to use.
David Motton, editor FirstCar Theory and FirstCar Practical, said: "With zero tailpipe emissions, the Renault Zoe makes an ideal first car for environmentally conscious drivers.
"Compared with most plug-in electric vehicles, the Zoe is surprisingly affordable to buy new, and there are now plenty of used examples to choose from. What's more, the Zoe is easy to drive, has performed extremely well in Euro NCAP safety tests, and the range is a lot further than most new drivers will need to travel each day.”
Vincent Tourette, Groupe Renault UK managing director, said: "The Zoe is already a multi-award winning electric vehicle, and winning this award illustrates, once again, just how versatile Zoe is.
