Renault has a reputation for design, performance and reliability all at an affordable price tag. From compact city cars to larger family SUVs, the French brand has offered something for everyone for decades - and the move to electric is no different.
Key highlights of Renault
The brand was founded in 1899 by a brilliant young French engineer, Louis Renault. Over its long and sometimes turbulent history, Renault has won a well-deserved reputation for producing high-quality cars that are comfortable to drive and offer great value for money. Models such as the Clio and Megane have established Renault as a firm favourite among UK drivers and the move to electrification has continued that trend.
Renault & EVs
Renault first dipped its toe into the EV world with the quirky Twizy and then the more practical Zoe. The Twizy may now be no longer but the Zoe goes from strength to strength with extra range and some great electric car leasing deals. Renault hasn’t stopped there though, with more and more models released and more coming soon.
Top Renault models
A compact all-electric hatchback, the Renault Zoe excels in a crowded field. It’s outstandingly economical to run, and it’ll keep going for up to 245 miles between charges. This makes it a reliable option even for long-distance travel. It’s quick and easy to charge and it has zero CO2 emissions.
There’s also the Renault Megane E-Tech - a compact SUV that looks great, has space for all the family and has one of the slickest touchscreens on the market.

The Renault Zoe is one of the original EVs, with the first version going on sale around a decade ago. Age has done little to weaken the Zoe’s appeal, though, and thanks to a number of continuous improvements over the years (such as increased range), it remains an incredibly affordable and great all-round EV for life in and around town.
We've made leasing an electric car easier than ever
Renault’s range of cars have always remained popular with drivers in the UK and around the world for a number of reasons, the main one being their overall reliability. They are the perfect cars for using every day, especially if you take short and regular trips. Their electric vehicles also have a decent range, meaning you’ll be spending less time at the charging stations.
When you lease a Renault model with GRIDSERVE, you can benefit from three months of free charging across the entirety of the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway. We’ll send you a contactless card and you can use it at any GRIDSERVE charging station, it’s that simple.
At the time of writing, there are two Renault EV models available to lease in the form of the Megane E-Tech and the Zoe. If nipping around city streets is your thing, then the Zoe is probably the ideal model as a highly economical hatchback, whereas if you have a small family then the Megane E-Tech would be ideal.
With GRIDSERVE, you can choose to lease a Renault for either 24, 36 or 48 months. Simply choose the option that suits your personal situation and we can organise the rest.
The range figures are strong for the Renault EV models, with the Megane E-Tech having an official range of 292 miles, while the Zoe comes in at 245 miles. The exact figures that you’ll get when out on the roads will vary depending on a range of everyday factors, such as the weather, driving style, battery age and charging capacity.
Whether your Renault lease includes VAT or not will depend on if it’s a personal or business leasing agreement. Any personal lease deals will have VAT included in the listed price, while all business lease deals are excluding VAT. This explains why business deals appear to be cheaper.
The prices of the available Renault EV models are quite similar, with the Zoe being the slightly more budget-friendly option due to its smaller size. All models do offer great value for money.
