Appy, France's first "100% electric vehicle" city

In recent years, the development of electric mobility has become a real challenge for society. Aspirations for a more virtuous and ecological "world of tomorrow", of which electric mobility is a part, are taking shape.

In July 2020, Renault provided the 11 families who live in Appy with 11 Renault ZOE electric vehicles

For three years and for the very first time, Renault is offering a New ZOE to every household in the municipality, as well as the equipment needed for recharging (charging station/home socket) and a public charging station.

To demonstrate that the transition to electric mobility is possible for everyone, Renault, in collaboration with Publicis, has come up with a new system by inaugurating France's first "100% electric vehicle" city.

This city is Appy.

For three years, the inhabitants of this town in the Ariège region, one of the most isolated towns in France, will be able to test the experience of electric driving on board New ZOE and give their impressions.

Their testimonials will constitute the chapter of a new history for the towns and villages of France .

Far from being reserved for large urban centres, the electric vehicle is now adapting everywhere, and access to recharging solutions is constantly developing throughout the country. In the first quarter of 2020, the market for electric vehicles tripled.

Renault has been at the forefront of this very dynamic market for the past eight years, confirming its leadership position in France with the launch of New ZOE, its best-selling electric flagship model, which has become a real benchmark on the market with more than 100,000 models on the road.

Thanks to its range of up to 395 km in the WLTP cycle and its ability to recover up to 150 km of autonomy in 30 minutes of recharging, Nouvelle ZOE is the perfect vehicle for this device, which helps to enhance the many advantages of electric mobility.

This unusual and innovative device, inaugurated by Renault on July 21, 2020 in Appy, in the presence of the mayor of the town, regional institutions and Renault representatives involved in the project, will allow Renault to follow

these new users of the New EZ to accompany them in this transition to all-electricity.

With this system, Renault has set itself a real challenge: to make the lines move, to "break" the clichés of electric mobility.


The inhabitants of Appy will be the unexpected ambassadors to demonstrate that the transition to electric vehicles is simple and does not complicate daily life in any way.
