After being introduced at the Paris Auto Show last month, the updated Renault Zoe is now available for order in the United Kingdom, with deliveries set to commence in January.
With a starting price of £13,995 ($17,058) after the Plug-in Car Grant, the zero-emissions vehicle now benefits from a new 40 kW battery option, which joins the 22 kW and provides a NEDC driving range of 250 miles (402 km). However, Renault estimates that, depending on the outside temperature, the Zoe Z.E. 40 can be driven for anywhere between 186 and 124 miles (300-200km).
The larger battery option is available on the Dynamique, which costs £17,845 ($21,750), and on the all-new Signature grade, priced from £19,895 ($24,249). The most expensive model comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, leather upholstery, heated front seats, driver’s seat lumbar adjustment, premium Bose audio system, and rearview camera.
Regardless of what trim level customers choose, the 2017 Renault Zoe has standard R-Link2 infotainment system, which works together with a 7-inch touchscreen, TomTom sat-nav, Bluetooth, cruise control with speed limiter, and climate control. Head for the Dynamique and this will add 16-inch alloy wheels, hands-free keycard, automatic headlights and wipers, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever and others.
The 2017 Zoe can be acquired in two ways, either by leasing the battery on a monthly basis, meaning that the car will kick off at £13,995 ($17,058), or by purchasing it outright, from £18,995 ($23,152) in the entry-level grade, and up to £26,245 ($31,989) for the top-of-the-line.
