New from Renault, the ZOE is a revolutionary vehicle that Renault aims to use to herald the start of a new automotive era. Its electric propulsion results in zero emissions and fuel costs (apart from the pennies incurred whilst charging up the battery). It is, furthermore, an enjoyable and capable vehicle to drive in its own right
Renault has put the utmost care into each detail of the exterior, such as the hidden rear doors and the rounded lines of the roof. There are seven different exterior paint options, which are available in metallic and non-metallic versions. Designed to catch the eye and turn heads wherever it travels, the ZOE features slimline headlights and a swooping roofline. Available paint schemes include Glacier White, Iceberg Blue, Calico Grey and Diamond Black.
Modern technology enables the motorist to be in full control of the ZOE interior even while they are in other locations. Remote communication through the use of smartphone technology allows the driver to start charging the vehicle or activate the onboard heating. The manufacturer's R-Link technology, meanwhile, enables many useful functions; it can display the driving range and locate the nearest charge points, retrieve emails, and enable the radio.
The ZOE is powered by an 87bhp electric engine that supplies maximum torque of 220Nm, giving it a top speed of 84mph and a 0-60mph acceleration time of 13.5 seconds. It has a travel range of 130 miles on a single charge, and the Chameleon charger allows for different charge cycles - enabling a charging time of between half an hour and nine hours, depending on the battery requirements.
Drivers will also be pleased to discover that on top of its ecological awareness, the ZOE has also been awarded the five-star Euro NCAP safety award. This makes it one of the safest cars available for road use today, and is representative of the safety features with which the ZOE arrives as standard. Front driver and passenger airbags are included, as are front side body and head airbags for the driver and passenger. ISOFIX fittings are included on the outer rear seats and front passenger seat, enabling the easy installation of child safety seats.
