That’s not entirely true but it’s more than obvious that nearly every automaker is embracing electrification under full power these days. And the latest to show progress is Renault which is now testing the second-generation Zoe on public roads.

The camouflage is not letting us see many details of the body, but it appears that the EV will be slightly larger than its predecessor.
The resemblance to the current Zoe is especially striking at the back where even the light clusters seem to have an identical shape.
