Renault reveals UK pricing and specification for the new ZOE

News

The new all-electric Renault ZOE will be available to order from mid-September, with prices starting at just £18,670 ($23,150) and customer deliveries from January 2020.

The new generation ZOE features increased power and range, a host of technological improvements, an overhauled interior and distinctive new exterior looks.

The launch of the third generation of Renault's flagship vehicle in its 100% electric range is a major milestone in Renault's commitment to large scale electric vehicle development. Seven years after the release of its best-selling predecessors, New ZOE has evolved in quality and technology to offer superior features while remaining affordable.

Under the skin the New ZOE gets a powerful 52 kWh Z.E. 50 battery that delivers a range of up to 245 miles (WLTP) - the best driving range in its segment and an increase of 32% over the previous 41 kWh pack. Despite the increase in range and capacity, the battery has not increased in size physically, meaning no loss of interior space.

ZOE now also offers fast direct current (DC) charging, in addition to the alternating current charging (AC) options already available at home or on the street. Charging the battery is also made more straightforward by the Renault EASY CONNECT smart services, which allow quick and easy location of charging points.

Located behind the Renault diamond logo charging hatch, the new Combo (CCS) plug is slightly larger than the previous plug and consists of both a European standard socket and a two-pin connector for DC charging. The central location of the socket makes charging even easier, especially on public charging stations which have their own cable.

Thanks to this Combo plug, the New ZOE is able to charge quickly with a direct current (DC) up to 50 kW, simply by inserting the charging cable attached to the terminal into the two-pin connector that's sited below the type-2 socket. Replenishing the battery in this way can add around 90 miles of range in as little as half an hour.

The standard type-2 cable provided with the car and the Chameleon Charger are used for everyday AC charging use, such as at home with a wallbox, at work, in a car park or on public roads using anything up to a 22kW supply. Plugging the ZOE into a public 22kW roadside charger can deliver a useful 78 miles of range in only one hour.

When using a 7kW wallbox, supplied as standard to customers to charge easily at home, the New ZOE can charge from 0 to 100% in nine hours and 25 minutes. This ensures that a complete recharge can comfortably be achieved overnight. Around 190 miles of range can be achieved in just eight hours. Users charging their vehicle at home can also benefit from the programming options, adjusting their recharge to correspond with tariff fluctuations from their electricity supplier.

With the addition of a powerful new R135 100 kW motor option, as well as an entry-level R110 80 kW motor and the inclusion of a new B mode urban driving setting, the New ZOE is even more at home on both the open road and in city. The addition of two motors in line with Renault's philosophy of sustainable mobility for all, gives customers greater choice and the option to choose a more affordable EV powertrain or combine with increased power.

The new R135 100 kW motor on Iconic and GT Line models delivers the equivalent of 135 PS and improved torque for faster acceleration and greater responsiveness. Engineers have used the increased-capacity battery of New ZOE (Z.E.50) to get the most out of the Renault developed motor, which packs a healthy 245 Nm from zero rpm and drives through a single speed gearbox, helping the ZOE sprint from 0 to 62mph in less than 10 seconds and onto a top speed of 87mph. Highlighting its real world pace, the 100 kW model can accelerate from 50 to 75 mph in just 7.1 seconds, which is 2.2 seconds quicker than the 80 kW 110 PS R110 engine, which is carried over unchanged.

Both motors now come equipped with the new “B mode” driving function, which intensifies the regenerative braking effect to essentially allow the driver one pedal operation of the car. When B mode is activated, the car decelerates significantly faster as soon as the driver releases the accelerator pedal. B mode makes driving easier, especially in the city or in slow moving traffic. Its integration is accompanied by a new braking system that offers improved feel through the pedal. As for D mode, it remains particularly useful when the car is moving at a constant speed, on the open road or motorway for example.

The driver can switch on demand between B and D modes with a simple push on the new e-shifter. This replaces the old car's mechanical lever with an electronic switch. Simple pressure on the knob is enough to send instructions to the motor, while selected driving mode is clearly displayed on the centre console and on the 10-inch driver's display which is standard across the range.

A new 10-inch TFT instrument cluster is standard across the range. This display contains the main driving information including an eco-meter that encourages eco-friendly driving habits. The driver can also customise the lighting and the layout of the different information on-screen and on versions equipped with sat-nav the instrument cluster also relays turn-by-turn instructions for safer, less distracting driving.

The centre of the dashboard houses the Renault EASY LINK 9.3-inch portrait touchscreen multimedia system, standard on GT Line and optional on Iconic, with a 7-inch version on the entry level model. This system controls the main functions of the vehicle and can be enhanced with specific operations, such as the real time availability of charging stations. Smartphone connectivity is taken care of by Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Between the driver and passenger is a revised centre console that's home to a new electronic gear selector, plus the driving mode selector, the chrome switch for which is decorated with the “Z.E.” logo and enables the easy transition between the various driver settings, notably the new B Mode that boosts regenerative braking to encourage single pedal driving.

Standard across the range is a new electronic parking brake, which replaces the traditional handbrake to free twice as much storage in the centre console which now contains the new wireless smartphone charging, standard on Iconic and GT Line models. In the rear, passengers have access to two USB sockets that can be used to charge devices such as mobile phones, tablets and portable games.

Renault has engineered the New ZOE with a brand-new electrical infrastructure. More modern, it now allows for the integration of all the sensors and automated functions that are essential for the new driver assistance systems (ADAS). They are designed to better inform the driver, simplify driving and enhance safety.

There is a whole suite of safety systems on the ZOE, including the Active Emergency Braking System (AEBS), Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Auto High/Low beam headlamps (AHL). Further driving assistance features include the hands-free Easy Park Assist (EPA), front and rear parking sensors, Hill-start Assist and an automatic parking brake.

The ZOE's infotainment system features the Renault EASY CONNECT set-up, which combines with the new Renault EASY LINK multimedia system and the MY Renault app to offer drivers a range of applications and services designed to accompany them throughout their daily activities.

On a smartphone, the MY Renault application includes a variety of useful services to manage a car remotely, such as a remote check on the battery range and charging status. You can also plan charging during off-peak hours, start or schedule heating or air conditioning to reach the ideal temperature of 21°C for the moment of departure without affecting the range.

On board, Renault EASY LINK's connected navigation beams the route to the multimedia screen and includes the location and availability of the nearest charging stations. The map is also enriched with real-time traffic information provided by TomTom, plus new features such as Google Search. The EASY LINK navigation map database is regularly updated, automatically and transparently for the user, via the “Map Auto-Update” function.

New ZOE is still available to buy both as full purchase, with no mileage limit on the battery and an eight year/100,000-mile guarantee, or as a battery lease option, offering a more affordable purchase route with peace of mind and encouraging sustainable mobility for all.

The New ZOE is available in three trim levels: Play, Iconic and GT Line in the UK. The prices of the new ZOE Play begin from £18,670 ($23,150) OTR while that of the top-spec GT Line begin from £21,620 ($26,809) OTR.
