Renault promotion: test drive a Zoe electric car - and get a free iPad!

The Renault Zoe has shaken up the electric car market with its eye-catching looks, futuristic cabin design and attractive purchase price.

Now, as part of a Renault promotion, we’re giving two readers a chance to test drive a Renault Zoe for a week for a promotional film.

We’ll deliver the car to you and fit a Z.E.-ready wallbox at your home (you’ll need off-street parking). The car will be fitted with cameras to record your experience of living with the Zoe, and we’ll give you an iPad to keep a daily diary of your week.

After seven days, we’ll return to make a video of your electric experience before we collect the Zoe – but you get to keep the iPad.

The Renault Zoe is a five-seat supermini offering a maximum driving range of 120 miles, funky looks, a practical cabin and generous standard equipment. It has also been awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP passive safety tests, with a best-in-class overall score of 85%, and also has a passenger airbag that can be deactivated to fit a child seat, while you can enjoy the reassurance of 24/7 roadside assistance, even if you run out of charge.

There’s a smartphone app that lets you monitor charge levels and even adjust the car’s interior temperature remotely.

To be in with a chance of running a Zoe for a week, let us know why you’d like to try it out, and why you’d be perfect for our Renault video (in no more than 200 words).

Send your application to and we’ll select two winners. Please quote 'Zoe reader test – What Car?' in the subject line.
