The third generation Renault Zoe is now in New Zealand and it’s improvements go further than just the range. Which is also better by the way!
Winning a string of ‘Electric Car of the Year’ Awards along with being Europe’s most popular EV, this new Zoe is one to watch. Fun fact, one in every 5 EVs in Europe is a Renault Zoe!
The battery is now a 52kWhr unit which puts the WLTP range at a colossal 395km. There is even a DC charging option now for quicker refills. The car itself is also faster with a 100kW option available, making it the most powerful Zoe yet. The battery has an 8 year/160,000km warranty which should give confidence to the car’s buyers.
The interior has seen a significant upgrade as well. Renault’s Easy-Link system is now standard through a 10 inch touchscreen! The gearbox also has a B-mode for regenerative braking making one pedal driving easier. Parts of the interior are also made from 100% recycled plastics to further improve the sustainable aspect of this car.
The Zoe still maintains it’s funky appeal with a range of new colours available as well. There is Titanium Grey, Glacier White, Celedon Blue, Star Black, Quartz Blanc White, Blueberry, Flamme Red and Highland Grey to choose from!
