Details of the New 2018 Zoe Announced

Renault has revealed its new 2018 model-year ZOE, featuring the new R110 electric motor which is 13kW more powerful than its predecessor, the R90.  The new ZOE will offer stronger acceleration performance when travelling at high speeds yet retain the nimbleness of the R90 in urban areas.

Android Auto-enabled R-LINK Evolution will be available for 2018-model-year ZOE, which means drivers will be able to display driving-compatible Android applications stored on their smartphone (including Waze, Deezer, Spotify, TuneIn, Skype, Messenger, Audible and many others available from Google Play Store) on their car’s multimedia screen.

A new dark metallic purple body colour "Aconite" is added to the range with the Dynamique Nav version, able to be specified with the new Purple Interior Pack which includes a violet satin finish for the dashboard trim strip and air vent, gear lever base, loudspeaker surrounds, top stitching along with black and violet fabric upholstery.

Order books for ZOE equipped with the new R110 motor, Android Auto compatibility and optional Purple Interior Pack have just opened with first customer deliveries expected in late summer.
