Renault Electric Vehicles (Pics & Some Details)
January 17th, 2014 by Zachary Shahan
I recently got a chance to check out Renault’s entire electric vehicle lineup at EVS27 in Barcelona. Below are most of my pics of all of these vehicles (except the Twizy, which I got to test drive) — the Renault Fluence ZE, Renault Zoe, and Renault Kangoo ZE — followed by some key facts on each of the models. Check them out and enjoy!
Btw, the Renault Twizy isn’t included since I got to test drive that one, so am planning to cover in a little more depth.
This first car in the Renault electric vehicle lineup is the Renault Fluence ZE. It has received a lot of praise. According to UK ratings, the Fluence ZE has a range of 115 miles on a single charge, which is on the higher end for 100% electric vehicles. The Fluence ZE starts at £17,845 in the UK (~$29,221). The interior is very nice and comfy. Looking forward to test driving this one at some point.
The Renault Zoe is the most popular electric car in Europe. It seats 5 and reportedly has 130 miles of range. It’s a very good-looking car in person, in my opinion — better than in pics. To purchase, the price of the Zoe is ~£17,045 (~$27,911) in the UK, but that doesn’t include £70 (~$115) a month for battery rental.
The Renault Kangoo Van ZE comes at a rather low starting price of £12,995 (~$21,250). It has 106 miles of range according to the NEDC. There are four different versions of this electric van available. Check out more Kangoo Van ZE details on the Renault website.
