The popular Renault ZOE is better than ever, with improved performance, new smartphone compatibility, and a fun new colour. As What Car’s Best Electric Car of 2018, it’s pulling out all the stops to make electric motoring exciting and intuitive.
The ZOE’s exterior design is unmistakably that of an electric vehicle. Its low-set front grille and slender headlamps with LED daytime running lights prove this is an economic hatch that means business, while a coupé-like profile is achieved by incorporating the rear door handles into the window frames. This gives a slick, aerodynamic feel that looks great while reducing drag. With a new dark purple body colour – Aconite – it’s sure to make others stop and stare.
Being able to relax behind the wheel is essential, and the new Renault ZOE ensures you can do that. The cabin is designed to be simple yet sophisticated, with comfortable seating, advanced technology, and plenty of space for all. The 2018 model is compatible with Android Auto, meaning you can now access your apps via the seven-inch touchscreen mounted in the central console.
Make the ambience more personal by adding a little colour to the interior with the blue or purple touch colour packs, and enhancing the sense of luxury with real leather trims.
The ZOE’s new R110 electric motor produces 108bhp, meaning that acceleration is swift and smooth both under and over 40mph. It’s fun and relaxing to drive around town too, with the lack of engine noise meaning you can chat or listen to music without interruption. The supple suspension soaks up bumps, while light steering makes manoeuvring easy and precise – ideal for tackling city streets.
Best of all, of course, there are no CO2 emissions and charging is very simple. Plug in at home, on a public charging point, or at your destination and relax while your battery charges. With a range of up to 219 miles (31mph) too, you can go even further without needing to top up.
The Renault ZOE is packed with technology and safety equipment to ensure you have an enjoyable and secure drive wherever you’re headed. Stability control keeps things smooth even in tougher conditions, while the Z.E. Voice function ensures pedestrians can hear you coming at speeds of up to 18mph. Meanwhile, clever features such as eco-mode help you maximise your range, and a hands-free card means there’s no more need for that hurried search for your keys.
