Renault Zoe buying guide

There are several different ways you can spec your Range Rover Evoque. Our guide is here to help you navigate the different engines and trims so you can choose the right version for you.

What Renault Zoe trim levels are there?

The entry-level trim for Zoe models is called Play. This version comes with cruise control, air conditioning, and a basic touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Most Zoe buyers step up to the mid-range Iconic trim. This adds alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, built-in sat nav for the infotainment system, and climate control.

At the top of the range sits GT Line trim – Renault’s sporty trim to mirror BMW’s M Sport or Audi’s S Line. GT Line Zoe models get a larger infotainment system, a few upgraded stying details, nicer alloy wheels and faux-leather seats.

Renault Zoe interior and technology

The Zoe doesn’t quite have the wow factor inside as something like a Tesla does but, as an affordable electric car, it still makes you feel at home. There are a few scratchier plastics here and there but the large screen and leather-trimmed steering wheel help lift the general ambiance. Range-topping GT Line models benefit from the addition of faux-leather seats to make the cabin feel more premium.

Renault’s infotainment system is reasonably good to use. It’s not as responsive or intuitive as the best on the market, but still contains all the functions you’d expect. Crucially, it includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto across the range so you can use your smartphone’s apps through the car’s infotainment screen.

As a city-friendly hatchback, space isn’t going to be the Zoe’s greatest strength. There’s enough head and legroom for four adults to fit in reasonable comfort, but squeezing three across the rear bench is only really suitable for short journeys as there’s not much elbow room back there. Boot space is adequate for the class but family buyers will struggle to get pushchairs back there.

What’s the best engine for the Renault Zoe?

There are two electric motor options available for the Zoe. All versions come with the same 50kWh battery pack giving every model a range in excess of 230 miles. Fast charging is available as an option across the lineup.

Renault Zoe 80kW R110

The entry-level motor choice for the Zoe is the R110. This motor makes 80kW (or around 110hp) and can hit 62mph from rest in 11.4 seconds. That kind of performance isn’t going to impress drivers used to lightning-fast Teslas, but it’s more than enough for day-to-day driving.

Renault Zoe 100kW R135

The upgraded motor option for the Zoe is the R135. This unit makes 100kW (around 136hp) giving it noticeably stronger acceleration, reaching 62mph from rest in 9.5 seconds. That’s not going to bother any hot hatches, but off-the-line acceleration to around 30mph feels particularly strong in this version, and it also feels slightly more relaxed at higher speeds.

Your Renault Zoe questions answered

Renault Zoes come in one form only – a five-door hatchback. It’s been subtly updated several times during its production run, but all versions look more or less the same.

The biggest refresh for the Zoe came in 2019, which brought updated exterior styling and a new, slightly posher cabin. At the same time, the battery and motor options were refreshed, with fast-charging now available as an option across most of the range.

The Zoe is just a fraction under 4.1 metres long. That means it’s roughly the same length as a Renault Clio hatchback or a Ford Fiesta. As a result, its easy to park in tight spaces and squeezes through narrow city streets without any fuss.

Those compact dimensions do mean the Zoe is a little tight inside. Four adults will be able to fit inside without bumping elbows but pushing this to five will quickly see complaints arising from the cramped rear row. Boot space is acceptable for the class – able to take a week’s shopping with ease or one large suitcase, but bigger loads will present a challenge.

The Renault Zoe can manage up to 239 miles on a full charge, but your range estimate will change depending on the speed you’re driving, the outside temperature and whether you’ve got the heating on. Renault’s estimate suggests that you’ll get more like 140 miles from a full battery at motorway speeds.

The Renault Zoe is a great choice if you’re after a small, city-friendly electric car that can also manage longer trips. It’s practical for its size, features plenty of equipment and has a comparatively long range. Some cars also feature 50kW DC fast-charging, which can add 90 miles of range in under half an hour when you’re out and about. Watch our full video review of the Renault Zoe here.

This depends on where you charge and, if you charge at home, how much your tariff is. But if your home electricity tariff is 37p per kWh – the average at the time of writing – it’ll cost just under £20 for a full charge. If you use public chargers, it’ll usually cost a lot more to recharge.

A brand-new, box-fresh Renault Zoe starts from around £30,000. But if you don’t mind buying a nearly new Zoe with a few thousand miles under its wheels, you could potentially pay less than £15,000 – or less than £200 per month on PCP finance. With its low price and low running costs, the Zoe is probably the best-value used electric car you can buy.
