Why Lease A Renault Zoe?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
A similar size to the Renault Clio and other small cars, the Zoe has enough space for 4 adults in relative comfort, the 5th seat useful on the odd occasion. Both head- and legroom are good for a small car and children will have enough room in the back.
The boot space stands at 338 litres with the rear seats upright, which trumps electric versions of the Peugeot 208 and Vauxhall Corsa. Petrol and diesel Renault Clio models are roomier, but all-electric rivals such as the Honda E only offer half as much luggage space. Folding down the rear seats liberates an impressive 1225 litres of capacity.
One of the more efficient electric cars on sale, the Zoe comes with a choice of 2 motors depending on trim. The 110hp R110 motor is good for between 239 and 245 miles of range on official economy tests, while the more powerful 135hp R135 can cover around 239 miles. All Zoes come with the same 52kWh lithium-ion battery.
These distances will vary with driving style, as well as traffic and weather conditions. Interior electrical power consumers, such as the air conditioning, can also have an impact on range, but the Zoe combats this with very good regenerative braking and pre-conditioning systems. An Eco mode limits engine performance and the strength of the air conditioning to maximise the available driving range.
The Renault Zoe Vs Competitors
Fitted with a 52kWh battery, the Renault Zoe is available with a choice of 2 motors and has a quoted all-electric range of more than 200 miles. The 110hp R110 motor is good for up to 239-245 miles of range, the more powerful 135hp R135 motor travelling distances of around 239 miles according to official economy tests.
There are many ways to charge the Zoe and all will take different amounts of time. Connected to a 7kW home wallbox, the Zoe can be charged from 0-100% in 9 hours and 25 minutes. On a 22kW public charge point, this decreases to 3 hours. Connect to a 50kW rapid charger and a 0-80% battery refill takes 1 hour and 10 minutes. However, 50kW charging is only available on Iconic and GT Line models.
The Renault Zoe has 338 litres of luggage space with the rear seats in place. When folded, 1225 litres of room is on offer. That’s more than the MINI Electric, Peugeot e-208 and Vauxhall Corsa-e, but less than the petrol or diesel versions of the Renault Clio.
There are 3 trim levels offered to drivers looking to lease a Zoe. Entry level Play models offer all the basics and come with the smaller R110 motor, while Iconic versions come with more tech and luxury. Top-of-the-range GT Line models are even more generously stocked with kit.
The Zoe’s flat boot floor makes loading things easy and the compartments underneath it store the charging cables tidily. As well as having a boot as large as those found on superminis fitted with a combustion engine, the Zoe has plenty of cabin storage with pockets in all 4 doors. There are also compartments up front, including useful areas in front of and underneath the gear selector.
Pretty and smart looks, a choice of motor options and a longer range than most electric small cars are all factors which have contributed to make the Renault Zoe a popular lease deal choice. It’s more practical than its rivals, as well, and a quality interior offers even more appeal. Well equipped with a decent drive and range, the Zoe is one of the best electric cars available.
