Renault ZOE

Renault ZOE Car Insurance

The 2017 model year Renault ZOE was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show 2-16, complete with the new Z.E.40 battery that has a 250 mile (NEDC) range – the longest range and a new top-of-the-range Signature Nav trim level.

With a 250 mile (NEDC) range, Renault claim that the ZOE offers the best range of any mainstream electric vehicle. In real-world driving, Renault estimates the ZOE fitted with the new Z.E.40 battery has a real-world range of between 186 miles in temperate conditions and 124 miles in extreme cold conditions.

The ZOE is now offered with a choice of two batteries – the new Z.E.40 battery and the existing 22kW battery. The entry level Expression version comes with the 22kW battery whilst Dynamique Nav and above are offered with the new Z.E40 battery, equipped with an optional Quick Charge facility. All ZOEs sold to private customers are supplied with a fully-installed 7kW fast-charging box that enables convenient charging at home.

The updated ZOE has expanded to a five-version line-up based on three trim levels – Expression, Dynamique Nav and the new Signature Nav. The ZOE remains available to purchase with a monthly battery lease agreement or outright with no battery lease agreement.

The Expression trim level provides buyers with a specification including Renault’s R-Link2 infotainment system with TomTom® satellite navigation; climate control, electric windows and electric heated mirrors, cruise control, speed limiter, keycard, Bluetooth connectivity and storage throughout the cabin.

Other innovations include the ZOE’s Chameleon Charger™ designed to ensure that ZOE adapts and always charges from a source at the highest rate possible to lower charge time and the Z.E. Connect app which allows drivers to remotely monitor battery levels and charging status via their smartphone or computer.

The ZOE has a five-star Euro NCAP rating and standard safety features such as ESC with traction and understeer control, Hill Start Assist and front and side driver and passenger airbags.

The ZOE Dynamique Nav adds a hands free keycard, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors, rear electric windows and electrically operated, heated and folding door mirrors, 16-inch ‘Black Shadow’ alloy wheels and a leather steering wheel and gear lever. The new ZOE Signature Nav trim level sits at the top of the range and features leather upholstery, heated front seats, a seven speaker BOSE® audio system, rear parking camera, 16-inch ‘Grey Shadow’ alloy wheels and driver’s seat lumbar adjustment.

Regardless of trim level, the ZOE is available to purchase in two ways. Buyers can lease the battery on a monthly basis. Battery lease payments are banded and reflect estimated annual mileage starting from £49 per month. Alternatively, ZOE can be bought outright, including the battery, and therefore have no monthly battery lease payments.

The ZOE has been awarded the title of What Car?’s ‘Best Electric Car under £20,000’ for the last three consecutive years and was recently named ‘Best Supermini’ in the Auto Express Driver Power 2016 survey, coming second overall out of 183 vehicles. ZOE was named a Which? ‘Best Buy’ in August 2016.
