Zoé Renault told Le Parisien that she did not want her identity to be reduced to the image of a car or to be associated all her life with a vehicle. "It would be unbearable for me to hear 'the Zoé has broken down', 'we have to get the Zoé overhauled' or 'so and so killed themselves in a Zoé,'" she said.
It's better in French:
« Je ne veux pas que mon identité renvoit à l'image d'une voiture et être associée toute mon existence à une auto. C'est blessant, juste invivable ».
"It's hurtful, I simply cannot live with this."
People live without sight, hearing, arms, legs. You can live with a car having your name, bitch.
