A number of new deals on the Renault Zoe EV have been revealed by Renault with the turn of the year. People in the UK can now get a Zoe lease from £199/month, via a 3-year 4.9% APR Selections Personal Contract Purchase (PCP) scheme, amongst other things.
The deal mentioned above runs through March 31, 2018, reportedly. It requires a deposit of £2,599 + an extra dealer contribution of £5,2451, and a separate battery lease.
In addition, Renault is continuing to offer free 7 kW wall box chargers and installations with the purchase of a Zoe.
The press release provides more: “The ZOE is an all-electric, 5-door supermini available in a choice of 3 trim levels and with two battery options. With the new ZE 40 battery, ZOE’s range is 250 miles (NEDC) — Renault estimates that in real-world driving conditions this equates to around 186 miles in summer and 124 miles in extreme cold winter conditions.
“ZOE can charge from zero to 80% full in as little as 60 minutes thanks to its patented Chameleon Charger that allows it to make the most of the widest range of power supplies and also keep charging times to a minimum. Renault’s Range OptimiZer technology ensures ZOE is highly efficient with its heat pump, a bi-modal braking system, and Michelin ENERGY E-V tyres all as standard.”
While that’s all well and good. It’ll be interesting to see if Renault Zoe sales take a hit in the UK following the release of the new, refreshed Nissan Leaf — which by most accounts looks like a car that’s been designed to actually sell well, rather than just maintain the appearance of effort in the electric vehicle sector (ahem, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, PSA Group, etc…).
