Re­nault launches ex­tra spe­cial ZOE

Gloucestershire Echo - - MOTORING NEWS -

RE­NAULT has opened the or­der book on a new ver­sion at the head of its elec­tric ZOE su­per­mini line-up. The new Re­nault ZOE S Edi­tion re­places the pre­vi­ous Sig­na­ture Nav ver­sion and brings ex­tra kit at a small pre­mium over the Dy­namique Nav grade.

First de­liv­er­ies are ex­pected in April.

Re­nault says the new S Edi­tion aligns the ZOE with the rest of the sim­pli­fied range of Re­nault cars and en­sures it con­tin­ues to of­fer a sim­ple choice with strong value to cus­tomers.

Added equip­ment in­cludes a BOSE stereo, which in­cludes DAB ra­dio, and a rear park­ing cam­era.

All the seats are fin­ished in a leather and tex­tile cov­er­ing and com­fort is en­hanced with lum­bar ad­just­ment on the driver’s seat.

On the ex­te­rior, buy­ers can choose be­tween 16-inch ‘Black Shadow’ al­loy wheels or, at no ad­di­tional cost, up­grade to 17-inch ‘Black Optemic’ al­loys.

Th­ese fea­tures are in ad­di­tion to those al­ready found on the en­try level Re­nault ZOE Dy­namique Nav, which in­cludes a hands-free key­card, rear park­ing sen­sors, au­to­matic wipers and lights, cli­mate con­trol, and a leather steer­ing wheel and gear knob.

Also fea­tur­ing is front and rear elec­tric win­dows, and elec­tric, heated and fold­ing door mir­rors.

The Re­nault ZOE S Edi­tion is priced from £19,270 in­clud­ing the gov­ern­ment Plug-in Car Grant, mak­ing it just £850 more than the Dy­namique Nav.

Cus­tomers can choose to buy their car and lease the bat­tery, or they can pur­chase the full car out­right, re­ferred to as ZOE i. Bat­tery leas­ing starts at £59 per month.

A choice of two mo­tors are avail­able in the both the ZOE Dy­namique Nav and the ZOE S Edi­tion.

The Q90 Quick Charge mo­tor al­lows for faster bat­tery charg­ing, from zero to 80 per cent in 65 min­utes with a 43kwh charger.

The R110 mo­tor has an ex­tra 19bhp and has im­proved per­for­mance, es­pe­cially be­tween 50mph and 70mph. Both are mated to the Z.E. 40 bat­tery and have a range of 186 miles.

In ad­di­tion, all re­tail cus­tomers who pur­chase a Re­nault ZOE re­ceive a free 7kw wall-box for their home.
