6 Cool Facts About The New Renault ZOE!

 The new Renault ZOE just arrived in Menapia Motors and we’re happy to say it’s our best yet! The popular, all-electric ZOE has been revamped for 2020 with more range and the best in quality, technology and safety in compact electric cars. Here are 6 reasons why you need to come and discover new ZOE for yourself.

  1. Ireland’s most affordable, long range electric car

Drive for longer for less in the new Renault ZOE! Not only is the ZOE Ireland’s most affordable electric car at €26,990 (after VRT relief and SEAI grant reductions), but it also offers more range than its closest rivals. That’s thanks to a new 52 kWh battery that gives an electric range of 395 km, measured by WLTP industry standards.

  1. More ways to charge

The Renault ZOE is the only electric car with standard 22 kWh AC charging through the special Chameleon Charger™. This means that plugging the ZOE into one of the numerous public 22 kW roadside chargers around Ireland can deliver a useful 125 km of range in just 1 hour. For the first time, there’s now a CCS fast charging option that opens up DC charging capability up to 50 kW. This means that ZOEs fitted with the CCS adaptor can be charged using the ESB fast charge network or even the IONITY chargers located at some motorway service stations. You can be on your way after 30 minutes charging with an extra 145 km of range. For home charging, private buyers can avail of a €600 SEAI grant for the purchase and installation of a 7 kW wallbox. Charging ZOE at home on a cheaper night rate would typically cost about €5.

  1. Miles more equipment!

Navigation and entertainment are now hosted on a bigger tablet style, 9.3-inch touch-screen multimedia display, equipped with the new Renault EASY LINK system. The system supports seamless integration with smartphones through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A customisable 10-inch TFT instrument cluster is fitted as standard. For the first time in the sector, this high-definition screen is available from entry-level specifications. It joins all the standard equipment designed for driving comfort and enjoyment, such as the automatic parking brake. Wireless smartphone charging is also available.

  1. Stay connected with MyRenault App

Renault ZOE owners can download the MyRenault App to stay connected with your car. View the charge status of the battery in real time, plan your charging sessions and routes with the smart journey planner, schedule charging for off-peak times, or even pre-heat the cabin to prepare for a drive on a cold winter morning!

  1. Faster than before!

The 2020 Renault ZOE is available with two different motors. The R110 motor is the entry into the range with 108 hp, while buyers looking for greater performance can now choose the ZOE with the new R135 motor with 135 hp. You still get all that instant torque from the electric motor that makes the ZOE surprisingly quick.

  1. One-pedal driving

The innovation at Renault continues with a new regenerative braking ‘B mode’ for the ZOE. You can slip the car into this mode with a simple press on the gear lever and it allows simple one pedal driving. Put simply, ZOE decelerates more as soon as you release the accelerator. This reduces your use of the brake pedal and allows you to enjoy a smoother, more relaxing drive, especially in town or slow-moving traffic.
