RENAULT ZOE

Daily Express - - TOTAL EV -

PRICE: from £14,245 To our eyes at least, the Renault ZOE is one of the pret­ti­est EVs avail­able as it rings true to its French roots, blend­ing com­fort and style.

The lit­tle Renault of­fers an im­pres­sive elec­tric range with the new Z.E. 40 bat­tery boast­ing a claimed 250-mile range – but don’t be sur­prised if this is closer to 190 miles in the real world.

The smaller 22kWh bat­tery of­fers an of­fi­cial range of 149 miles. Stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion is tempt­ing with en­try-level mod­els boast­ing au­to­matic cli­mate con­trol and satel­lite nav­i­ga­tion.

PROS:

At­trac­tive looks, gen­er­ous lev­els of equip­ment and im­pres­sive range from top bat­tery.

CONS:

Bat­tery hire manda­tory and in­te­rior lacks flair of ex­te­rior.
