Biotherm has teamed with Renault to conceive what they’re billing to be the first “spa” car that’s 100 percent electric. Called Zoe Z.E.

For the latter, Biotherm developed an energizing fragrance for the morning, a de-stressing scent for after-work motoring and another to keep drivers awake while traveling at night. Zoe Z.E. is set to hit the market in 2012.
