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.
Key highlights of the Renault Zoe
The Renault Zoe is not too dissimilar to the petrol or diesel Clio, although it’s a little bigger which means there’s room for five passengers, each with enough legroom to be comfortable. There’s also over 300 litres in the boot, which makes it more practical than some of its smaller city car rivals, like the Honda e or MINI Electric.
Despite the budget-busting price, the Zoe comes kitted out with all the standard features you need, like hands-free entry, cruise control and emergency brake assist. Overall, it’s a supremely practical small car.
Renault Zoe performance & range
As with all EVs, the Renault Zoe has great acceleration while its small dimensions mean it’s easy to handle around town, whether you’re nipping down narrow streets or parallel parking to pick up your dry cleaning. You can choose from Techno and Iconic trim levels, both of which are fitted with a 52kWh battery that will do over 200 miles before needing to be topped up. All this makes it an impressive all-rounder.

Similar models to the Renault Zoe
The Renault Zoe is a leader in the small EV market, but there are some competitive alternatives, too. You might want to look at the Peugeot e-208, Vauxhall Corsa-e or, for something bigger, the MG4. For a touch of classic style, the MINI Electric also has an all-electric version.

We've made leasing an electric car easier than ever
The Zoe is a great option when looking to lease your next EV, with the small hatchback proving popular with UK motorists for good reason. It’s a fairly well equipped car for its size, with plenty of modern tech included as standard. Plus, for a small EV, it has great range figures.
By leasing a Zoe with GRIDSERVE, you can get three months of free charging that’s really straightforward to claim. We’ll send you a contactless car in the post, and you can use it to charge your new Zoe at no charge any time across the first three months of your lease agreement.
The charging times for a Renault Zoe will depend on the model you’ve gone with and the power of the charger it is hooked up to. As an example, the Zoe has a maximum fast charge power of 46 kW, replenishing the battery from 10% to 80% in 56 minutes.
During the application process, you will decide on the annual mileage amount for your Zoe lease that makes the most sense for you. The minimum standard mileage figure is 5,000 per year, with the maximum being set at 30,000 miles.
The range of your Zoe will vary depending on the exact model you choose. The maximum official range figure is 245 miles, which converts to around 208 miles in real-world estimates. When you need to charge the Zoe, you’ll find plenty of options on the GRIDSERVE Electric Highway.
