Renault’s Updated Zoe EV Poses In 154 New Images

After the conclusion of the test drives in Portugal, Renault published an extensive photo gallery of its updated Zoe electric hatch, which may not be offered in the USA, but we’ll see it in Boston as an autonomous taxi.

Introduced earlier this fall during the 2016 Paris Motor Show, the electric supermini might not bring any significant exterior revisions apart from some new color choices and different wheel patterns, but it promises to take its occupants further way on a single charge, in the ’40’ trim.

In this form, the 2017 Renault Zoe uses a new battery pack, which increases the total driving range up to 400 km (~250 miles) on a single charge in the NEDC, but the French are more down-to-earth when it comes to driving it in the real world and state that it will do 300 km (186 miles) before needing to be plugged in again.

Depending on the market, the zero-emissions car comes with standard 7-inch touchscreen, R-Link2 infotainment, TomTom satellite navigation system, Bluetooth connectivity, climate control, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gear lever, automatic headlights and wiper and several other goodies. However, the Zoe can also be had with a premium Bose audio system, heated front seats and rearview camera, but for an extra cost.

In the UK, the most affordable version of the vehicle starts at £13,995 ($17,415) after the Plug-in Car Grant.
