Renault given permission to name car Zoe

Tom Webster

Renault has won the right to call its new electric car Zoe after a French judge threw out a case brought to court by two sets of parents of girls called Zoe Renault.

The families argued that their children would face years of ridicule in the future for having the same name as a car, with their lawyer saying they would be plagued in the future by people asking "Can I see your airbags?" or "Can I shine your bumper?"
