The Mondial De l’Automobile show has just got underway in Paris. It runs from 29 September to 14 October and is Renault’s most significant event. This year sees Renault debut its new Clio, and also show off the Zoe for the last time before the start of deliveries.

According to its press release:

“Renault ZOE: The spearhead of Renault’s Z.E. Technology and Innovation Drives.”

Certainly EVs don’t seem to be going away. Technology Review takes the encouraging view:

“Despite a few automakers backing away from electric cars, they are alive and well at the Paris auto show.”
