2020 Renault Zoe Spied With An Evolutionary Design

The Renault Zoe is one of the most popular electric vehicles in Europe and spy photographers have caught the redesigned model undergoing testing for the first time.

Dressed in heavy camouflage, the 2020 Zoe has a familiar appearance as it features an evolutionary front fascia with a prominent Renault badge that is flanked by new headlights. Further below, we can see a redesigned front bumper with a revised air intake.

The familiar styling continues further back as the model has a long windscreen and an upward sweeping belt line. The rear end is also pretty evolutionary, but the hatchback appears to adopt a more rakish rear window.

The single interior photo doesn’t reveal much as most of the dashboard is covered by a cloth sheet. However, the model appears to have a larger instrument cluster with a metallic surround. We can also see a leather-wrapped steering wheel with chrome accents on the control stalks.

Besides these minor changes, the model will likely have a new dashboard and an updated infotainment system. The car could also have new switch gear and higher quality materials.

Specifications remain unconfirmed, but the model will reportedly feature a carryover powertrain sourced from the Zoe R110. That model has a 41 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which powers an electric motor that develops 107 hp (80 kW / 109 PS) and 166 lb-ft (225 Nm) of torque. This enables the car to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 11.4 seconds, hit a top speed of 84 mph (135 km/h) and travel up to 186 miles (300 km) on a single charge.

Renault has a lot riding on the second-generation Zoe as the current model has been a relative hit. Carsalesbase data shows the company sold more than 30,000 units in Europe last year which handily beats sales of the BMW i3 (21,010) and Nissan Leaf (16,832). The pint-sized electric vehicle also topped Tesla’s combined sales of 27,986 units.
