Renault Zoe EV Might Be 7 Years Old But Still Gets The Thumbs Up

Getting into the electric car club has never been easier; there are several affordable options in the segment, and the Renault Zoe is one of them.

Sure, it’s not the most modern one out there, as it’s currently seven years old, but the French all-electric supermini still does get the job done in 2019. CarsIreland drove it and said that it’s a viable choice for the daily commuter and quite friendly to those putting a lot of miles on the clock on a constant basis.

Thanks to the 40 kWh battery, the driving range varies between 200 and 300 km (124-186 miles), depending on a number of factors, including outside temperature and how hard one pushes the throttle. Seeing the battery go from 0 to 100 percent requires six hours using a home outlet, or about two hours with a public charger. Those who cannot wait that long can take advantage of the fast charging capability that gives the battery an 80 percent charge in an hour.

In Ireland, which is where this review took place, the Zoe has a starting price of €24,990 ($28,134). The base model gets a standard chameleon charger, R-Link 7-inch infotainment system with sat-nav and others. The mid-range Dynamique will set buyers back f€27,790 ($31,286) and adds 16-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, hands-free key card and automatic windshield wipers and headlights. The Signature Nav can be ordered from €30,290 ($34,100) and offers leather upholstery, a Bose sound system and reversing camera.

Overall, the Zoe is a very easy car to master that’s well equipped for the market segment in which it competes. As for the full review, as always you’ll have to click the video right below.

    The ZOE is indeed a very loveable car, but: 1) It’s very expensive for a super-mini. 2) Nobody really knows the battery life on the long range, meaning that battery degredation is an issue if you’re planning to keep owning the car for 8-10 years. 3) When the weather is very hot (like in the Middle East), the battery will not perform at its best.
    4) The new ZOE, out later in 2019, will showcase an even larger range (380 km?) making the current model look very bad very soon. 5) If you can’t charge the battery from 0% to 80% in under 30 minutes, most people will not buy the car.
