Renault plans to test a fleet of self-driving Zoe electric cars in the central China city of Wuhan in November to demonstrate its autonomous-driving technology. The test drive will be carried out on a 2 kilometer-long section of a lakeside road in Wuhan’s Caidian district, according to Dongfeng Renault Automobile Co., Renault’s joint venture.

Further details about the car have yet to be disclosed. Renault unveiled the Next Two, a self-driving prototype based on the Zoe hatchback in 2013. Renault is the second global carmaker planning to test its autonomous driving technology in China. In April, Volvo said it would test up to 100 self-driving cars in China. At the time, CEO Hakan Samuelsson said in an interview that the company would let customers test one of the cars on Chinese roads next year.
