Interior and Space
The Zoe has a great layout that really maximises its size. The Zoe can fit 5 people and comfortably takes child seats if required. The car has 3 Isofix points – 2 in the back and 1 in the front passenger seat so it is perfect for those that need to carry multiple young children.
Due to it’s electric drivetrain, the Zoe does not require an exhaust or fuel tank – this allows the Zoe to offer a very deep and square boot. The boot is surprisingly spacious and super practical. Renault have helpfully provided bag hooks in the boot to prevent your shopping from falling over on the way home.
Range and Charging
The following range information is provided by Renault. Please get in contact with us if you would like to discuss our real-world experiences with the 40kWh Zoes.
The new Z.E. 40 battery was developed by Renault with a revolutionary technology which doubles the capacity of the lithium-ion battery, in exactly the same dimensions! 250 miles NEDC* on one charge, with the same benefits as the 22kWh battery, such as simple recharging, no required maintenance and easy recycling at the end of its life. Located under the floor to lower the center of gravity, the battery has no impact on either roominess of the car or on the boot volume. ZOE offers 100% torque from start, a quiet motor, no gear changes or petrol stations, and relaxed driving pleasure.
*Homologated range according to NEDC test cycle, for comparison purposes, 250 miles, and may not reflect real life driving results. S
