The latter category comprises the Equilibre, Evolution, and Iconic, priced from €27,700 (equal to $29,133), €29,800 ($31,341), and €30,900 ($32,498), respectively, including tax and the local government incentive for electric vehicles.

Starting with the entry-level Zoe, it features advanced emergency braking system, newly-colored badges, keyless entry, 7-inch infotainment system compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, 10-inch TFT display, manual air conditioning, four-speaker audio, and the 22 kW AC charger, which enables energy recovery up to three-times faster than its closest rivals, Renault claims.

Stepping up to the mid-range variant of the zero-emission supermini, it adds a navigation system to the same infotainment display and features automatic air conditioning, rear parking sensors, and shark-fin antenna. This version rides on 16-inch Eridis diamond-cut wheels as standard, and brings lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition at no extra cost.

Choosing the top-of-the-line model will get you 17-inch dark alloys, with warm titanium accents, gold finish for the grille, and fog lamp housings, a sticker at the bottom of the doors, and new upholstery inside, made from TEP and recycled fabric, with new embossing on the seats and dashboard. Providing some contrast to the interior is the gold piping. Another thing that this model has is the 9.3-inch infotainment system with navigation. The auto-dimming rearview mirror, reversing camera, rear USB port, and several other things are found here too.

Options include the charging cable mode 2, DC 50 kW quick charge, all-season tires, and new exterior paint finish, offered across the range. From here on, the Evolution can be had with 15-inch wheels, Comfort Pack, Winter Pack, Pack Vision, and wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones, and the Iconic with the 16-inch Seidon wheels and side strip deletion at no extra cost. In terms of power, customers are looking at 110 ps (108 hp / 81 kW) in the Equilibre and Evolution, and 135 ps (133 hp / 99 kW) in the Iconic.
