Renault UK announced pricing and specification for the 2017 model year Renault ZOE that was recently unveiled at the Paris Motor Show, complete with the new Z.E.40 battery that has a 250 mile range.
A new top-of-the-range Signature Nav trim level has been added to the ZOE line-up for the 2017 model year which goes on sale today and will arrive in UK showrooms from January 2017.
With a 250 mile (400 km) (NEDC) range, Renault ZOE offers the best range of any mainstream electric vehicle. 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 updated ZOE is being expanded to a five-version line-up based on three trim levels familiar to owners of other Renault vehicles – Expression, Dynamique Nav and the new top-of-the-range Signature Nav. ZOE remains available to purchase with a monthly battery lease agreement or outright with no battery lease agreement.
The Expression trim level provides buyers with a 7-inch touchscreen housing Renault’s easy-to-use R-Link2 infotainment system with TomTom satellite navigation; climate control, electric windows and electric heated mirrors, cruise control, speed limiter, keycard, Bluetooth connectivity and ample storage throughout the cabin.
Renault’s Range OptimiZer technology ensures ZOE is highly efficient with its heat pump, a bi-modal braking system and Michelin ENERGY E-V tyres. ZOE’s Chameleon Charger ensures that ZOE adapts and always charges from a source at the highest rate possible, thus lowering charge times.
The ZOE Dynamique Nav adds to the Expression specification with a hands free keycard, automatic lights and wipers, rear parking sensors, rear electric windows and electrically operated, heated and folding door mirrors, 16-inch ‘Black Shadow’ alloy wheels and a leather steering wheel and gear lever. In addition to the Z.E. Connect app, the Dynamique Nav benefits from a one-year subscription to the Z.E. Interactive app. Via a smartphone or computer this allows you to remotely charge your ZOE and schedule charges, as well as cabin temperature pre-conditioning, in order to maximise convenience and take advantage of available off-peak electricity rates.
All-new Signature Nav trim level
The new ZOE Signature Nav trim level sits at the top of the range and features supple leather upholstery, heated front seats, a seven speaker BOSE® audio system, rear parking camera, 16-inch ‘Grey Shadow’ alloy wheels and driver’s seat lumbar adjustment.
External changes for 2017
ZOE will be available in three new colours for 2017 – Mars Red, Titanium Grey and Ytrium Grey (available on Signature Nav only) complementing the Zircon Blue metallic added in 2016. The Renault logo and badging switches from blue to chrome to accommodate this new colour selection. The 16-inch alloy wheel design on Dynamique Nav and above has been changed.
Servicing and Warranty
ZOE is available with a choice of Renault Service Plans. The 3 year/30,000 mile (whichever comes first) Service Plan is available at the recommended retail price of £429 and the 4 year/40,000 mile Service Plan available at £639. Servicing is required once a year or every 18,000 miles.
