Renault has teamed up with British conservation charity Plantlife and the UK’s celebrated florist, Larry Walshe, to create a dramatic floral installation, flowing inside and out of a 100% Electric Renault Zoe E-Tech.
Renault – a pioneer in electric mobility, pledging that 90% of its sales mix will be electric vehicles in 2030 – has joined forces with conservation charity Plantlife. As the world faces an ongoing environmental crisis, with 40% of our plants and fungi threatened with the risk of extinction, and 5.8% risk created by pollution, the partnership aims to raise awareness of the positive effects that switching to electric vehicles can have on the UK’s flora and greenspaces, as well as public health and the climate.
To inspire the need to take action to protect British wildflowers and green spaces that are fast disappearing, the dramatic floral installation was unveiled in the Old English Garden at London’s Victoria Park, featuring Europe’s bestselling electric vehicle of 2020, the Renault Zoe.
Designed by celebrated florist and sustainability champion Larry Walshe – who was awarded a medal for his critically acclaimed display at The Chelsea Flower Show 2021 – the installation supports Renault’s mission to make electric travel accessible to everyone, as well as its commitment to the development of large-scale electric mobility.
The Zoe was decorated with over 2,500 flowers and features native British wildflowers, including Gentiana, as well as species that are classified as endangered, including Gladioli, Dahlias and the All 4 Love Rose, which is the world’s most endangered rose.
The installation challenges the UK’s 32 million drivers to accelerate switching to electric vehicles before the Government’s 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars.
The all-electric Zoe and Renault’s offering of the largest mix of electric vans, as well as E-Tech hybrid and plug-in hybrid options spanning the range from small cars to family SUVs, provide a solution for zero-emission mobility and the prevention of idling, which contributes to improved air quality, health, and biodiversity.
