Renault’s Zoe electric vehicle will be priced from £13,650 including Government subsidies and customers will have to pay at least £70 a month for the battery rental.
The Zoe will be available in three trim levels: Expression, Dynamique Zen, and Dyamique Intens and Renault will include a free domestic wallbox for customers to charge the car at home.
The Dynamique Zen and Intens versions cost £14,750. Monthly battery lease costs increase depending on the contract term taken out ranging between £70 and £93 a month.
The Zoe will spearhead Renault’s electric vehicle range and the French brand is hoping the new model will be popular with a wider audience in comparison to its very niche two-seater Twizy.
The Zoe has a potential range of 130 miles and a full charge on domestic mains power takes nine hours. A fast charge can restore the Zoe to 80% in 30 minutes.
The Zoe is fitted with ‘Z.E. Voice’, a sound which warns pedestrians between speeds of 1 to 18 mph and drivers can choose between three different sounds. It is possible to switch the system off.
The Zoe is available to order now and will arrive in Renault showrooms from June 7.
