2020 Renault Zoe Now Available To Order In the United Kingdom

As an outright purchase, British customers need to pony up £25,670 after the government’s plug-in grant for electric vehicles. The 2020 Renault Zoe is also available with a battery lease for £18,670, which makes the subcompact hatchback the most affordable EV in the segment.

No fewer than three trims are offered in this part of the world, starting with the Play. The Iconic and GT-Line are a bit more powerful and better equipped, but nevertheless, the Zoe Play is adequate in terms of standard equipment. Automatic wipers and headlamps, power front windows, cruise control, speed limiter, 10-inch digital instrument cluster, 7.0-inch Easy Link infotainment, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto are a few of the highlights.

The electric motor is rated at 80 kW, translating to 107 horsepower. The GT-Line comes exclusively with the 100-kW drive unit (134 horsepower) and the Iconic is available with both for some reason or another. One aspect that doesn’t change regardless of trim level is the battery’s capacity. 52 kWh of energy translates to 245 miles of range (WLTP) for the Zoe Play.

Also common is B Mode, a function that intensifies the regenerative braking to such an extent that one-pedal operation is possible in slow-moving traffic. The more powerful and torquier of the two electric motors promises 9.5 seconds from naught to 62 miles per hour (100 km/h) and a top speed of 87 mph (140 km/h), plenty enough for a cutesy little electric hatchback.

Charging? The 50-kW DC fast charger is optional, but through it, Renault promises 90 miles (145 kilometers) of range in half an hour. Using a 22-kW charging station translates to 78 miles (125 kilometers) in an hour. As for the 7-kW household wallbox, make that nine hours and 25 minutes.

Since its launch, Renault sold more than 150,000 examples of the Zoe in Europe. Of those, more than 10,000 went to the United Kingdom in right-hand drive. Even though it’s currently available to order, British customers will have to wait until January 2020 to get the first cars delivered.
