About the Renault ZOE

Sitting closer to the budget end of the electric car market is the Renault ZOE. Based on the Clio, it's pretty fast, pretty fun and pretty great to drive.

245 miles (WLTP)

8 year waranty

or 100,000 miles


5 seats

Its price point means that some of the finish feels slightly less luxurious than others, but that's less of a concern at this fantastic price point. What the Renault Zoe does well is performance. A good battery means decent mileage and its neat and compact design is so good for city driving (and city parking).

Renault have some decent credentials in the electric vehicle market, starting way back in 2008 with the announcement of the Z.E (Zero Emissions) division. So they're a company that have invested in electric cars, and clearly believe in them. The Renault ZOE is an important part of their story

Driving experience

Away from the city (or town), the range of 185 miles is pretty good, and there's enough power to make driving the Renault ZOE a lot of fun on the motorway. It's a good, honest,and fun electric car at a great price.

Looking to go electric for your second car? Looking for low lease costs and low running costs?

You'll do a lot worse than choose the Renault ZOE.


Nowt better in the class for the money – there’s space, style, smooth drive, and that all-important range

It might be a small electric car, but it deceives you into thinking its a standard hatchback
