The five-door, five-seat Renault Zoe is practical and affordable and includes additional equipment such as a Bose stereo, including DAB radio and acoustics that are tuned to the specific dimensions of the Renault Zoe’s interior. The seats are finished in a leather and textile covering and there is a lumbar adjustment on the driver’s seat for enhanced comfort. The car comes with a choice of 16-inch ‘Black Shadow’ alloy wheels or, at no additional cost, 17-inch ‘Black Optemic’ alloy wheels.
These features are in addition to those already found on the well-equipped entry level Renault Zoe Dynamique Nav, which includes a hands-free keycard, rear parking sensors, automatic wipers and lights, climate control, and a leather steering wheel and gear knob. Also featured is front and rear electric windows, and electric, heated and folding door mirrors. Voice-controlled satellite navigation is also standard on all Renault Zoes via an embedded tablet in the centre console that includes a seven-inch touchscreen.
The new Zoe is also fitted with Z.E. Connected Services for communication between smartphones and the car, allowing features such as remote charging, monitoring of charge status and pre-conditioning, in which the customer can pre-set the temperature inside the Zoe for when they actually get into the car.
The S Edition is priced from £19,270 on the road including the government Plug-in Car Grant. Customers can choose to buy their Renault Zoe and lease the battery, or purchase the full car outright. Battery leasing begins from £59 per month.
A choice of two motors are available in the both the Zoe Dynamique Nav and the S Edition. The Q90 Quick Charge motor allows for faster battery charging, from zero to 80 per cent in 65 minutes with a 43 kWh charger. The R110 motor has an extra 19 horsepower and has improved performance, especially between 50mph and 70mph. Both are mated to the Z.E. 40 battery and both have a World Harmonised Light Vehicle Test (WLTP)-rated range of 186 miles.
All retail customers that purchase a Renault ZOE receive a free 7 kW wall-box for their home that ensures the easiest possible charging experience at home. The multi-award-winning Renault ZOE has been on sale in the UK since 2013.
Ordering is open now and deliveries of the ZOE S Edition begin in April.
