Review: Renault Zoe 2021


Review: Renault Zoe 2021

There are many reasons why the Renault Zoe is an excellent car leasing choice for those who are wanting a stylish electric vehicle.

Along with a range of 245 miles, the Zoe is packed with equipment.

It is also one of the cheaper EVs to lease and run, and is up against the likes of the Nissan Leaf, the Volkswagen ID.3, and the Vauxhall Corsa-e.

The Renault Zoe was at the forefront of EVs and established itself with a great reputation for those wanting a regular family battery-powered supermini.

A revamp has seen an improved infotainment system and the range structure being simplified.

Renault Zoe car lease choice

Around town, the Renault Zoe is a car lease choice that is not only quiet to drive, it also offers relaxing driving experience. Progress is seamless and there's no gearbox to deal with.

The 52kWh battery delivers brisk acceleration with the newest R135 motor producing 134 bhp for a 0 to 62mph sprint time of 9.5 seconds.

It's also a composed offering on motorway journeys with the Eco-mode boosting the range but slowing the acceleration to preserve battery power.

The Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) rate for the Renault Zoe is 0% in its first year, rising to 1% and then 2% in its third year of ownership. The emissions are 0% which make it an attractive, green car to run.

Zoe offers an upmarket electric car experience

The interior has been well-designed, and the Zoe offers an upmarket electric car experience and very pleasant place to spend time. Some models feature upholstery that has been created from recycled seatbelts and plastic bottles.

There are some similarities with the latest Renault Clio – they use the same platform - with a 9.3-inch touchscreen for the op model and lots interior style.

The entry-level model features a 7-inch touchscreen for the multimedia system and there's smartphone mirroring.

Basic equipment also includes automatic headlights, air-conditioning and cruise control.

Best contract hire option for the Zoe

The Iconic trim offers perhaps the best contract hire option for the Zoe with wireless phone charging, climate control, alloy wheels and lane-keeping assistance and has extra safety equipment.

The Zoe GT Line is the range-topper and drivers get to enjoy the larger touchscreen, and a reversing camera.

There's no need to worry about the battery level as the My Renault app will tell you how much power is left and if charging the battery, you can see how long there is left to charge.

The Zoe is also slightly taller than the Clio sibling to create more space in the cabin and with its five-star Euro NCAP safety rating, it's also a very safe car that has electronic stability control and airbags.

Renault Zoe is an impressive contract hire electric vehicle

Essentially, the Renault Zoe is an impressive contract hire electric vehicle that is comfortable and nice to drive with an all-round offering that anyone wanting an EV to lease will enjoy.
