More Powerful Renault Zoe Reportedly On Track For Geneva Debut

Renault wants to take advantage of the increased demand in EVs across Europe, so they’re reportedly prepping a more potent version of the Zoe.

Said to be named the Zoe R110 and to arrive at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show next month, according Autocar, the zero-emission supermini should put out 107hp, or 16hp more than the current model.

This isn’t the RS version of the Zoe that we were expecting, which could debut over the next two years, according to a previous report, but it may cater to those looking for more power.

It’s unclear yet whether its batteries will be improved to offer more range over the NEDC-estimated 402km (250 miles) of the updated Zoe Z.E. 40, though.

The French automaker is believed to offer the new R110 (name unconfirmed) in two trim levels, Dynamique Nav and Signature Nav, which means there won’t be an entry-level Expression.

This gives us an idea of what we should expect in terms of standard equipment: 16-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and a hands-free keycard, among others.

Pricing for the rumored Zoe R110 will, in all likelihood, be higher than the Dynamique Nav R90 Z.E. 40, which can be had from £17,845 ($24,885), after the government grant, in the United Kingdom.
