NEWS FROM RENAULT
Motorists will be able to experience the electrifying thrill of the Renault Twizy at two special driving events hosted by Lowestoft Renault dealer Mitchells.
Firstly, customers can try out the head turning Twizy and the Kangoo Van Z.E. at this weekend’s Henham Steam Rally. There will also be a huge range of new and used vehicles powered by diesel and petrol, including the forthcoming Dacia Duster and cars and vans from the Renault range.
Secondly, customers are invited to attend the Norwich leg of Renault’s Z.E. Test Drive tour which will be at the Forum from Friday 28th to Sunday, 30th September.
At the Forum, attendees will also have the opportunity to try Renault’s other electric vehicles, the Fluence Z.E., Renault’s five-seat family saloon and the Kangoo Van Z.E., currently, the International Van of the Year.
The Renault Zoe will be on display and staff from Mitchells Renault will be on hand to answer any questions about day-to-day life with an electric car.
The Forum is just one of 16 select locations across the country to host the event and was chosen as one of the area’s best-known landmarks, providing a fitting backdrop for the range of environmentally responsible vehicles.
Paul Bayfield, used car manager at Mitchells, said: “We know that local motorists will have read all about the buzz surrounding Renault’s electric range so we thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to enable drivers to experience driving them locally.
“Henham Steam Rally is always a great weekend out for the family and provides a superb backdrop for the great range of cars and vans we will have with us. We will be there with the Renault hospitality unit so there is free tea and coffee for anyone that wants to pop by and say hello.
“Renault Twizy really does turn heads thanks to its unique style and looks and is great fun to drive. It’s ideal for city motoring and is affordable, with prices starting from as little as £6,690. The Renault Fluence Z.E. is available from just £17,850 on the road, taking into account the £5,000 electric vehicle grant from the government, with a battery lease of £75 per month, based on a mileage of 6,000 per year over three years. Meanwhile, the Kangoo Van Z.E. is available from £13,592 plus VAT, with monthly battery hire of £60 per month.
“We’re inviting people to come and try out the cars, subject to availability of test drives on the day.”
