RENAULT has introduced a new version at the top of its Zoe EV range with the S Edition replacing the previous Signature Nav version.
Deliveries will begin in April bringing more equipment at a small premium over the Renault Zoe Dynamique Nav.
The new S Edition trim aligns it with the rest of the simplified range of Renault cars and additional equipment includes the Bose stereo, which includes DAB radio while, manoeuvring is easier thanks to the rear parking camera.
All of the seats are finished in a leather and textile covering and there is lumbar adjustment on the driver’s seat. On the exterior there is a choice between 16-inch ‘Black Shadow’ alloy wheels or, at no additional cost, 17-inch ‘Black Optemic’ alloy wheels.
Features already found on the entry level Zoe Dynamique Nav, include hands-free keycard, rear parking sensors, automatic wipers and lights, climate control, and a leather steering wheel and gear knob.
Also included is Z.E. Connected Services which allows features such as remote charging, monitoring of charge status and pre-conditioning, so the temperature can be pre-set before getting into the car.
The Renault Zoe S Edition is priced from £19,270 on the road including the government Plug-in Car Grant, £850 more than the Dynamique Nav. Customers can choose to lease the battery, or they can purchase the full car outright. Battery leasing begins from £59 per month.
A choice of two motors are available. The Q90 Quick Charge motor allows for faster battery charging, from zero to 80% in 65 minutes with a 43 kWh charger. The R110 motor has an extra 19hp and has improved performance, especially between 50mph and 70mph. Both are mated to the Z.E. 40 battery and both have a WLTP-rated range of 186 miles.
All retail customers that purchase a Renault ZOE receive a free 7 kW wall-box for the home.
