The 2016 Paris Motor Show in October saw Renault unveil and start taking orders for the new ZOE.
Thanks to its innovative new Z.E. 40 battery, the driving range of the new Renault ZOE has been doubled.
It is now the mass-market all-electric vehicle that is able to go the furthest on a single charge. Europe’s best-selling electric car is consequently more versatile than ever yet it continues to come with a particularly affordable price tag. Equipped with the new Z.E. 40 battery, the new ZOE is further evidence of Renault’s proactive policy as Europe’s electric vehicle pioneer and number one electric vehicle manufacturer (see box below), seeks to step up the growth of zero emission vehicles1 on an even bigger scale.
Renault has developed a suite of bespoke, innovative connected services. To simplify journeys of all types, Z.E. Trip and Z.E. Pass both make it easier to charge batteries at public charging points. These connected services will be expanded in the first half of 2017 with the introduction of a new smartphone app that will notably incorporate door-to-door navigation. Meanwhile, the ZOE’s high level of connectivity enables battery charging to be scheduled as a function of the cost and carbon credentials of the electricity uses. Renault has also modified the ZOE range’s equipment-level structure, including the launch of a new version – the ZOE EDITION ONE/BOSE2 – which targets customers on the lookout for an exclusive package. The model’s other equipment levels feature a selection of new appointments and styling enhancements.

Renault, Europe’s number one selling electric vehicle manufacturer3
- There are more than 100,000 Renault electric vehicles on the roads of Europe today.
- Renault has been Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle brand since 2010.
- More than one electric vehicle in four on the road in Europe today is a Renault4.
- In France (Europe’s leading EV market in terms of vehicle numbers), more than one electric vehicle in two is a Renault4 ,
- The Renault ZOE is Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle.
- The Renault Kangoo Z.E. is Europe’s best selling electric utility vehicle.
- The Renault-Nissan Alliance is the world’s number one maker of electric vehicles, accounting for more than half of all EV sales.
1Zero emissions during road use (zero CO 2 emissions and zero emissions of regulated pollutants during road use, in compliance with type-approval procedures, excluding wear parts).
2This version is available as a limited-edition car in France (the ZOE EDITION ONE) and as an equipment level in its own right (the ZOE BOSE) elsewhere in Europe.

1NEDC: New European Driving Cycle, the European standard for emissions and consumption, is a method for measuring fuel consumption based on identical tests carried out on all types of vehicles in Europe, whether they are internal combustion, electric, or hybrid. It is therefore an objective test for comparing performance between models of various manufacturers but does not reflect real world range. There are two parts to the test. The vehicle is put on a roller bench and driven through the same urban cycle (cycle ECE-15) three times, followed by a single extra-urban cycle. The average of these four cycles gives the average NEDC range.
