I came across two very different videos this week, both giving food for thought.
The first one is controversial – part of the ‘Exxon Hates Your Children‘ campaign. Its aim being to demonise Exxon for its role in global warming. While I can understand the sentiment, I’m not sure we are yet at the stage where it’s appropriate to blame oil companies for feeding the addiction, rather than accepting our own responsibility for the demand for fossil fuels.
Early yesterday morning my server host provider, EUKHost.com, upgraded the server that hosts MyRenaultZoe.com without warning. A backup from earlier in the week was applied so posts and comments from the end of the week were lost. I have re-entered the ‘VIP Evening Part 2’ post as best as I remember it.
If you commented in the last few days and your comment is not showing please repeat it. I apologise for the interruption.
Here are some more photographs from the VIP Evening. Some of them show details that I haven’t seen elsewhere.
Another attendee, Anthony, has given me some more details of the part I missed (thanks, Anthony). First there was registration, on an iPad, followed by drinks. The new Clio was there, covered up. The launch started with a welcome from the dealer, who then introduced two guys from Renault (Fusion). They uncovered the Clio and then took everyone around it, introducing all its new features. Anthony missed the next bit but doesn’t believe there was a similar reveal for the Zoe. He did learn, however, that test drives are being offered at the dealer (in Milton Keynes) from around 19th January 2013.
I recently attended a VIP Evening at my local Renault dealer (Marshall in Bletchley) which was an opportunity to see the Zoe and the new Clio. Unfortunately, due to a conflicting family commitment, I was unable to catch the main presentation. However I did get an opportunity to sit in, look around and photograph the Zoe.
Here’s a selection of general shots – I’ll follow up with some more detailed photographs in my next post.
Launched at the Paris Motor Show, the new 100%-electric Renault ZOE is ready to hit the UK streets in 2013.
