EcoVelocity Show, Excel centre, London, 5-13 May 2012

I recently attended the EcoVelocity show in the hope of seeing a Renault Zoe 'in the flesh'. Unfortunately it turned out that Renault didn't have a stand. Anyway, it was still a good show. I was able to see loads of EVs and hybrids. I also managed to get test drives in a Nissan Leaf (electric), Vauxhall Ampera ('range extended electric') and Peugeot 508 (hybrid diesel) and they were all very impressive. The Ampera seemed particularly 'starship' like in its cabin and controls.

Andy Heiron, Head of Electric Vehicle Programme at Renault UK Ltd, was interviewed during the afternoon about the Renault ZE range of vehicles. He didn't give away anything new, except that he seemed to indicate he didn't thing the Zoe would be available in the UK before December, which was disappointing.
