Renault Cements Zoe’s Bestseller Status With “Iconic” Special Edition

It’s no secret that the Renault Zoe is Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle, with more than 110,000 units sold since launching at the end of 2012.

To celebrate that sales milestone, Renault has given its electric supermini a special edition version fittingly called “Iconic.” Unveiled at the Paris Auto Show, the Zoe Iconic comes with exclusive exterior and interior features.

On the outside, the special edition EV sports a Highland Grey paintwork and, 17-inch aluminum wheels, and Iconic badges on the front fenders. Inside, the Zoe Iconic gains a grey-colored upholstery, “Iconic” sill plates, as well as a double bottom accessory for the luggage compartment that frees up loading space by storing the cables.

The Renault Zoe Iconic is available both with the new R110 electric motor or the older Q90 unit (a version of the R90 equipped for fast charging). The former produces 80 kW (109 PS/108 hp) and 225 Nm (166 lb-ft) of torque, while the latter makes 68 kW (92 PS/91 hp) and an identical peak torque.

The added power helps the Zoe equipped with the R110 motor cover the 80-120 km/h (50-70 mph) sprint two seconds faster than with the smaller unit. Conversely, the 0 to 100 km/h acceleration takes 11.6 seconds, and top speed is limited at 135 km/h (84 mph).

Regardless of the motor, Renault claims the Zoe Iconic offers a real-world driving range of 300 km (186 miles) in summer and 200 km (124 miles) in winter, thanks to a 41kWh lithium-ion battery.

To ease range anxiety, the Zoe Iconic features a new smartphone app called MY Renault that gives drivers information about the whole journey time, including driving and battery charging. The app also guides the driver to the most appropriate charging point.

    i thought batteries in EV cars would perform better in the summer than winter, not the other way around.
