Re­nault Zoe

Top Gear (UK) - - DRIVES -

The Zoe has been up­graded, fit­ted with a 17bhp more po­tent 109bhp elec­tric mo­tor for ac­cel­er­a­tion that feels faster than claimed. Small and eager, it’s good in town, but the brak­ing could be smoother. The ex­tra power im­proves high­speed use. Of­fi­cial WLTP range is 186 miles, but at high speeds that drops markedly. In our hands it was less ef­fi­cient than a VW e-Golf, at

3.8miles/kWh. At £18,420 with the govt grant, it’s £10,000 less than the Golf or Nis­san Leaf, but be aware it’s smaller, less well fin­ished and slower. Engine: sin­gle e-mo­tor, 107bhp, 166lb ft Per­for­mance: 0–62mph in 11.4secs, 84mph, 186-mile range, 0g/km CO2 Weight: 1480kg Price: £18,420*
