First up is the Renault Zoe. This car is exactly what you'd expect the French take on the the small car of the future to be like: it's cute.

Inside, every corner has been rounded off, every panel coated in white or grey paint, and almost every button or dial replaced by a screen. It sort of feels like you're driving an iPod, and I mean that as a compliment: we liked this car a lot.
