The refreshed and electrically-enhanced 2018 Renault ZOE EV will hit the UK showrooms in summer, starting from £18,420. The new model is the closest thing right now to a mainstream electric family car that is both affordable and practical for everyday use, and it even comes with a new and more powerful R110 powertrain so it should be fairly nice to drive as well.
The R110 version of the 2018 Renault ZOE offers 107 horsepower and 225 Nm of torque, but it promises to deliver the same 186-mile real-world range as the R90. If you are a heavy user, though, Renault recommends the Q90 model which has a range of 174 miles, but it can go from 0 to 80 percent charge using public 43kW charge point in about an hour. As with any other electric vehicle, the ZOE’s forte is smooth acceleration. But don’t expect a big top speed.
In terms of kit, the 2019 Renault ZOE has a base trim level called Dynamique Nav which is pretty well equipped. It comes with hands-free keycard, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors, cruise control, climate control, 7-inch R-Link infotainment system with voice-controlled TomTom sat nav, electric windows and LED Daytime Running Lights, all as standard. Above this is the Signature Nav which adds premium leather upholstery, BOSE audio system, heated front seats, electrically folding door mirrors and a rear parking camera.
