EV

If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to drive an EV while you're there…

Everyone who drives an electric vehicle for the first time says more or less the same thing afterwards... something like ‘Wow’ or ‘That’s incredible’.

It’s partly down to the car’s uncanny quietness, the instant (and rapid) acceleration and the smoothness of the ride. But mostly it’s because it’s just so good to drive.

By the end of a test drive you’ll be thinking seriously about making the switch to an EV.

NEXT TWO - the Renault that drives itself

NEXT TWO - the Renault that drives itself
It sounds like science fiction. You program an app on your Smartphone and your car leaves its parking space at a predetermined time and drives to your front door before taking you to your destination. All by itself. 
 
You can sit back and read, work, phone a friend or use the on-board high speed internet to catch up on the TV programme you’ve missed while your car does all the hard work. It’s safe, stress free and saves time and fuel… but it’s not science fiction – it’s science fact.
