It’s time for the new Renault ZOE Z.E.40 to be reviewed in the Fully Charged Show.
The Renault ZOE, fitted with the new Z.E.40 battery, offers a 250 mile (400 km) (NEDC) range. In real-world driving, Renault estimates the ZOE fitted with the new Z.E.40 battery has a real-world range of between 186 miles (300 km) in temperate conditions and 124 miles (200 km) in extreme cold conditions.
The Z.E.40 battery is available with an optional Quick Charge facility that reduces charging times even further. All ZOEs sold to private customers are supplied with a fully-installed 7kW fast-charging box that enables convenient charging at home.
Regardless of trim level, the ZOE is available to purchase in two ways. Buyers can lease the battery on a monthly basis. Battery lease payments are banded and reflect estimated annual mileage ensuring ZOE drivers only pay for what they need. They start from as little as £49 per month. New for 2017 is the ‘Unlimited’ option,that has no mileage cap, and is priced at £110 per month.
Alternatively, ZOE can be bought outright, including the battery, and therefore have no monthly battery lease payments. Full purchase versions that include the battery are denoted by their trim level names: iExpression, iDynamique Nav and iSignature Nav.
