And the winner is… Renault ZOE! The Rallye Monte-Carlo ZENN (Zero Emission, No Noise) has now concluded and saw victory in this category by the French electric car. Complete with poor visibility and typical mountain downpours, the rallye was full of surprises which the ZOE completed with zest to celebrate its international competition debut with an outright victory in all four regularity tests.

The Rallye Monte-Carlo ZENN is the ‘greenes’ segment of the Monte-Carlo New Energies Rally as the event is open only to electric vehicles rather than hybrids and other sorts of propulsion allowed in the main event. Held in Monaco, the rallye features three special stages ranging from 46.51km to 88.08km in length. These stages were divided into a four regularity tests for this years competition.

Participants had to contend with a combination of torrential rain and fog on the busiest day (Saturday, March 22) which featured two special stages divided into three regularity tests. Action concluded with a manoeuvrability test at the harbour in Monaco.

The ZOE excelled in all areas of the competition, although it is fair to say that most of the other vehicles participating in the ZENN were of older designs – the notable exception being the Volkswagen e-up! which came away empty handed.
