Renault Zoe takes 2016 Green Apple award

hi-res-green-apple-logoThe all-electric Renault Zoe has taken top honours at the 2016 Green Apple Awards. The awards, presented at the House of Commons on November 1, are organised by Midlands-based The Green Organisation and judged by members of the Midland Group of Motoring Writers.

After clinching the category for pure electric and hybrid cars, the Zoe went to take the Green Apple champion title, beating a diesel version of the Audi A6 in second place overall.

One of the judges said of the Zoe: “It is by some measure the most convincing all-electric vehicle I’ve driven. So good, in fact, than it only takes a few miles to forget what's powering you along so convincingly.”

MGMW chairman Ian Donaldson presented Matt Bendall from Renault with the top place award.
