Here is something that will make you wonder “What are the chances of something like this happening?” French automaker Renault SpA, has been threatened with a lawsuit, lest they change the name of their electric car, the Renault Zoe. The person who is threatening the suit? A 23 year old French woman by the name of Zoe Renault.
“I could not bear to hear: ‘Zoe’s broken down’ or ‘We need to get Zoe overhauled’,” she told Le Parisien newspaper. Quite frankly, we find it amusing.
Renault had chosen the name “˜Zoe” because it means “˜life” in Greek. A spokesman from the company said that Zoe was not a “˜definitive choice” for the automaker. Heck, we’d be honored to have a car named after us.
The Renault Zoe is scheduled for market launch in 2012.
