To get to The Big Raise, we sometimes rent Europe’s top‐selling electric car, a Renault Zoe, which has a range of over 300km. It only costs us €71 to rent a Zoe from Renault if we pick it up on Friday after 2pm and return it on Monday before midday.

Travelling to the farm by Zoe takes around two hours, assuming we don’t drain the battery by driving too fast or using the air conditioning!

Our rental Zoe is bottom of the range and comes with no frills, not even a clock on the dashboard. But you can very satisfyingly burn off pretty much any boy racer at traffic lights. Unless they’re in a Tesla of course.
