"One year after its launch in December 2012, ZOE blew out its first candle."

Says Renault.

The automaker adds:

"Renault is a pioneer and leader on the electric vehicle market in Europe, with market share of over 40% and already 10,000 ZOE vehicles sold to date. With many other manufacturers now starting to build electric cars, Renault already has a full line-up of electric vehicles and remains well ahead of the field."

The video celebrates the Zoe's 1st birthday by looking back at "how it came to be."
