ZOE is already one of the UK’s most affordable electric cars, but to make it even more enticing, Renault has launched a brand new battery hire option for lower mileage retail customers.
Available with all new ZOE orders, from only £45 per month, when taken over a three-year term, based on 3,000 miles per year, it offers a real cost-effective alternative tailored to those doing shorter journeys on a regular basis.
Much of ZOE’s appeal stems from the fact that it’s a no-compromise, stylish supermini, it just happens to be electric. It’s unsurprising then that it also stacks up well on cost versus fossil-fuelled small cars. For example, not only does it cost only 2 pence per mile to run, from £13,995 on-the-road it also undercuts the comparable diesel version of the country’s best-selling Ford Fiesta, in 5-door Style TDCi 75 guise, in terms of upfront cost, by £300.
Now, it’s leading the charge of vehicles with zero tailpipe emissions with a brand new retail finance offer. The new package sees the stylish ZOE Dynamique available, until 31st March 2014, on Renault Selections PCP from £189 per month, with a deposit of just £1,720, including a £1,000 customer deposit contribution.
That’s on top of its comprehensive Renault 4+ package, worth over £1,000, which includes 4 years/100,000 miles warranty, roadside assistance and routine servicing (4 years/48,000 miles).
Plus, from this month, the creative automaker is also enticing car buyers with Selections 500. The new customer loyalty incentive, which includes ZOE, guarantees £500 as a part-exchange bonus towards a new Renault model at the end of a customer’s finance contract.
Renault also includes a 7kW single Wallbox, which charges ZOE in three to four hours, for free at domestic properties in the UK. Add all of these savings up and a typical ZOE buyer could be over £2,500 better off, even before taking into account the associated Benefit-in-Kind, road tax and congestion charge benefits of running an electric vehicle.
The battery hire contract includes a battery performance guarantee, whereby if, for any reason, its operation falls below 75% of its original capacity, it will simply be repaired or replaced, regardless of the vehicle’s age or mileage.
