The Renault Zoe full electric was first unveiled at the Geneva motor how back in 2012 and with the first models hitting UK showrooms in 2013, since then the Zoe has evolved.
In 2015 a new, improved motor extended the Zoe’s range to up to 149 miles, while in 2016 further improvements and an upgraded battery meant an improved range of up to 186 miles. More developments in 2018 including an improved motor delivering performance gains and improved driving experience.

Free 7Kw Wallbox Supplied & Installed With Your New Zoe
For customers purchasing a brand-new Renault Zoe the cost of a new 7kW wallbox charger supplied and fitted at your home is covered courtesy of a partnership between Renault and ChargeMaster. The 7kW charger should be able to charge your new Zoe from 0-100% in around 9.5 hours, perfect for overnight charging.
Use of rapid charges found around the country at charging stations will dramatically speed up charging times. For example, a 50kW rapid charger should be able to get you a 75% charge in around an hour.
Zoe Offers Huge Savings On Running Costs
The Zoe is one of the most affordable electric cars on the market right now and with government grants of up to £3000 and further discounts available, you could bag a saving of up to £9000 off retail prices.
The savings don’t stop there, with the benefits a zero-emission vehicle brings including no road tax charges and escaping ultra-low emissions zone charges and levies.
Consider this, a new Renault Zoe should cost around £7.50 to charge from 0-100% at home with a 7kW wallbox, giving you up to 245 miles range. A petrol car doing a healthy 50mpg over the same distance is going to cost you in the region of £22.
