Written By:

Renault's compact electric car, the Zoe has been recently revamped to boost its driving range to almost 300km, now the mini EV is set to drive by itself.

Dongfeng Renault Automobile Co. will be testing the autonomous technology on the Zoe EV in the city of Wuhan, China as soon as next month.

This joint venture will use a 2.4km stretch of road in the city's Caidian district for testing purposes.

This is the second time that such a test is being conducted in China. Earlier Volvo announced that it will be testing driverless cars in China.

The new Zoe has an impressive range of 400km on a single charge using NEDC test scale. Which translates to around 300km in real conditions.

Renault had started working on the self-driving prototype based on the Zoe platform called the Next Two in 2013.

The Dongfeng Renault Automobile Co. started selling their first model, the Renault Kadjar in March. While the Renault Koleos crossover will hit Chinese market by end of this year.
