2020 Renault Zoe Allegedly Caught Undisguised, Looks Familiar, Is All-New

An image that’s supposed to be showing the facelifted Renault Zoe has just emerged online.

Carscoops reader Jean-Philippe Halimi first alerted us to it being shared on the SpeakEV forum. While it is difficult to say with certainty that this is the real deal, we’re pretty much convinced that this is the case.

We’ve known about Renault readying the successor to its all-electric hatch for quite some time; just last week, our spy photographers snapped a heavily camoe’d prototype. These spy shots made it clear that the new Zoe wouldn’t have a dramatically different design than the existing model and this image confirms it.

As expected, although the silhouette isn’t radically different, a number of changes have been made to the Zoe’s front end to make it appear slightly more aggressive. They consist of new headlights with incorporated LED DRLs, a new lower grille and re-designed front air intakes. All in all, it looks a touch more purposeful than the Zoe we’re familiar with.

Our sources tell us that, despite the minor visual modifications, the new Zoe will undergo a series of significant upgrades beneath the skin. In fact, it will switch to a dedicated EV architecture and may be sold with a battery pack as large as 50 kWh, which should be enough to provide a range of around 295 miles (400 km), and also adopt 100 kW CCS2 fast charging. Other upgrades will be the addition of systems such as Lane Keeping Assist and Active Cruise Control with stop & go capability.

  • Exterior was always alright, I hope the interior is updated to 21st century though.

    Those slots on side of front bumper if real should help with aerodynamics. They went to trouble of putting real slots on Twingo facelift so I’d guess they will do it here.
