Zero Emissions Concept from Renault to Provide Clean and Affordable Transportation

Renault is a company that isn't often featured in the headlines for having the latest and greatest concepts. This isn't to say they don't produce great vehicles; it really comes down to marketing. However, that may change within the next few years as the automaker has announced a new eco-friendly concept they are already planning on producing.

The new Zoe Zero Emissions Concept, or Zoe ZE for short, will be an all-electric plug in vehicle that features a quick swap battery. Renault is claiming the pack can be removed and replaced in about 3 minutes. This will make the idea of owning more than one battery pack very appealing as one could be in use while the other is being charged.

According to Renault, a dead battery can be "adequately" charged in about 20 minutes, with a full charge taking between 4 and 8 hours. The actual charge time will depend on the voltage being applied.

The concept will be equipped with a cabin filtration system that can actually detect pollution and close the vents so none is allowed to enter the passenger area. According to some reports, a system to dispense relaxing aromas via oils is also being looked at.

Renault is expecting to release the vehicle sometime in 2012.
