Posted by Charu on April 10, 2009

Welcome to Geneva 2009 motor Show. You must be amazed by the model being displayed there. I know this Auto Car Show is a biggest hit and of course most visited as well. Till date we have seen environment friendly cars, rather battery operated cars that are pretty popular amongst people. Many of us Already have started to drive these cars. Nissan Pivo 2, BMW GINA, some names to be consider (You can read about them in my previous posts, these two are awesome).

But the thing is, in this year’s Auto Show, Renault showed there first ever electric vehicle concept ZE. This green revolutionary concept is actually green. Its interior is lined with fresh green layer. Even window glasses have light green tint, and this makes ZE amazingly looking car for nature.

Renault’s ZE was first unveil in Paris 2008 Autoshow held in October 2008. It returned in Geneva Auto show with some minor modifications and rocked the show. The car is been scheduled for mass production from 2011. So we just need to wait for another two years to see this green revolution on the road.
