Are you ready to join the electric revolution? Renault's all-electric ZOE embodies all of the things there is to love about an electric car:
There's a strong electric identity with streamlined blue-tinted headlamps and transparent rear lights with concentric blue edges. The chrome diamond on a wide, black radiator grille, has a secondary purpose - it's hinged to reveal the car's socket for the battery charger. Thanks to its built-in rear door handles, ZOE has the streamlined appearance of a coupé. All of the handles have been branded with the designers fingerprint.
As standard, ZOE comes equipped with a 7" touch screen infotainment system that includes TomTom LIVE navigation, FM tuner, Bluetooth audio streaming and voice control. Renault's R-Link technology is integrated into the touch screen with a range of dedicated motoring apps including ZOE's driving range, your driving efficiency and the location of the nearest charging points.
The new Z.E.40 battery can store double the amount of energy compared to its predecessor without being any larger or heavier. Located under the floor, the battery doesn't impact passenger space or boot volume but does lower the centre of gravity. You're able to travel further, up to 186 miles, while benefitting from simple recharging and easy recycling at the end of its life. All retail customers will receive a Z.E.-ready fast-charging wall-box with free home installation which will allow you to charge your ZOE from flat to 100% in as little as three to four hours.
ZOE is packed with innovative features to make life as an electric driver even easier. The new-generation regenerative braking system stores kinetic energy under deceleration and braking and then converts it into current to charge the battery. ZOE's heat pump provides excellent thermal comfort in the cabin, but also optimises vehicle range. As there is no internal combustion engine, there is no waste heat available for heating the cabin. The Chaméleon battery charger has been patented by Renault and can charge up to 80% of the battery's maximum capacity in as little as 30 minutes.
Renault have developed two connected services to keep you and your ZOE in sync which can be controlled from your smartphone or computer. My Z.E. Connect allows you to remotely monitor your battery charging status. The second service, My Z.E. Interactive lets you remotely charge the battery, set a charging schedule and pre-condition the car to the perfect temperature before you start any journey.
