Why Lease The Zoe?
Renault Zoe Review 2021
The Renault Zoe may have been one of the first electric cars on the UK market, but it still continues to lead the way as the go-to small, affordable electric car.
Refreshed in 2019, this stylish five-door hatchback can not only travel over 200 miles on a single charge but also costs less to buy than most EV rivals, including the Honda E, MINI Electric, Fiat 500 and Peugeot e-208.
Our Renault Zoe review covers:
Renault Zoe Key Features
- Revamped exterior style with distinctive light clusters
- 338-litre boot with split-folding rear seat on Iconic trim and above
- Two power outputs with 107bhp or 134bhp
- Stylish interior with lots of smooth surfaces
- Three models, including Play, Iconic and GT Line
Design and Practicality
The latest generation Renault Zoe features a revamped exterior style. Its smooth bodywork, high shoulder line, and small window area help the Zoe stand out from the crowd and cut heat build-up and loss, reducing the demands on the battery-sapping climate control. The Zoe's distinctive light clusters have been given LED treatment too.
Inside, there's enough space for driver and passengers to get comfy, although the Peugeot e-208 offers more headroom for taller passengers. There's plenty of storage options, including a couple of small cupholders, a tray below the touchscreen to place your phone, and a shallow cubby above the glovebox.
Boot space is equally impressive at 338-litres. It's deep enough to fit six carry-on sized suitcases or the weekly family shop, but the large boot lip does make it difficult to load in larger objects. 60/40 split rear seats come as standard on Iconic and GT Line trims.
Interior and Trims
Inside, the Zoe's modern and minimalistic interior borrows heavily from the latest Clio and Captur. Soft-touch plastics are used along the dashboard, with a stylish digital TFT display instead of conventional dials. While the overall interior feel is pleasing, the Zoe's build quality doesn't quite match up to the Volkswagen e-up! However, more expensive trim levels make use of a special fabric made from recycled materials, enhancing the Zoe's green credentials.
Three trim levels are available, including the Play, Iconic and GT Line. The entry-level Play model features a seven-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, air conditioning, cruise control and automatic headlights and wipers.
The mid-range Iconic trim adds a built-in sat-nav, climate control, wireless phone charging, lane-keeping assistance and alloy wheels. The top-of-the-range GT Line features a 9.3-inch portrait-orientated touchscreen multimedia system, reversing camera and different upholstery.
Power and Performance
The Zoe has two power outputs from its single, front-mounted electric motor - an R110 model with 107bhp or an R135 version with 134bhp. Most won't notice a massive difference in acceleration at town speeds, but the R135 will get you up to motorway speeds much more swiftly.
At 245 miles (conditions permitting), the Zoe has a decent electric driving range, taking just over nine hours to complete a full charge with a 7.4kW home wall box. Rapid DC charging is also available as a £1,000 option on Iconic and GT Line versions, allowing the Zoe to charge from 0-80% in just over an hour.
The Zoe is generally well-composed in terms of ride, and broken road surfaces are absorbed easily, making for a smoother drive than the BMW i3 or Smart Fortwo EQ. Its light and precise steering mean the Zoe turns into corners keenly enough. Yet, while it is less restless than the firmer MINI Electric and choppier Fiat 500, the e-208 and ID.3 offer more comfortable rides.
