    Loving the Lovegrove touches, lights, wheels and interior; Though we think the reason why this fails so badly is that Renault didn’t let Lovegrove design the body and shape. Why go to all that effort of having a design legend funk-up and pimp their ride; the lastest(almost cool) electric car, and then leave us with a very tired, very dull old clio/early Nissan Micra looking shell. It looks like its been designed by 2 separate companies and it has. You can’t bolt on Funk and innovation. Its not too late Renault to let Dr Love finish the design job properly. Why can’t we have a sexy/ funky affordable electric car? The proof will be in the sales; don’t say I didn’t warn you.
