Renault Pospones Zoe EV Launch Due to R-Link Issue

The Zoe by Renault is one of the most upcoming vehicles to be launched in Europe. With a starting price as low as €15,700 for the most basic version (not including EV incentives), the imminent launch of the Zoe is causing quite a stir.

However, rumors have been circulating around that Renault have postponed the official launch of the EV, due to issues related with the software behind the Zoe’s touch-screen interface, called ‘R-Link’. Apparently, the car has been postponed for launch until early in 2013, despite still being shown at the Paris Motor show, in September.

The Zoe is a very important vehicle for Renault, as it is the first one to be specifically designed to run on electricity alone, so it will definitely be better than the Fluence and Kangoo which are merely converted. Being so important, they don’t want to take any chances and their reticence to launch a car which is not completely finished is understandable.
