Renault is recalling 10,649 of its Zoe electric vehicles.

The French carmaker said it was a preventative move to check brake fluid hoses that could rupture. They will be replaced if necessary.

It does not believe the fault had caused any accidents.

The recall affects about a quarter of all Zoes and covers models built between their launch in 2012 and October 2014.

A majority of them have been sold in France.

Renault has invested more than most other manufacturers in battery powered cars, but sales still lag far behind conventional vehicles.
