Renault launches new ZOE trim level
January 29, 2019
Renault has introduced a new model at the top of the ZOE range. It’s called the ZOE S Edition and replaces the previous Signature Nav.
Available for ordering now with deliveries in April, the ZOE S Edition brings a host of equipment at a small premium over the Renault ZOE Dynamique Nav.
The fun to drive five-door, five-seat ZOE is practical and affordable. The new S Edition trim aligns the ZOE with the rest of the simplified range of Renault cars and ensures it continues to offer a simple choice with strong value to customers.
Additional equipment includes the BOSE stereo, which includes DAB radio – delivering sharp sound throughout the cabin and acoustics that are tuned to the specific dimensions of the Renault ZOE’s interior. Meanwhile, manoeuvring is easier than ever thanks to the rear parking camera.
All of the seats are finished in a leather and textile covering and comfort is enhanced with lumbar adjustment on the driver’s seat. On the exterior of the Renault ZOE S Edition the customer can choose between 16-inch ‘Black Shadow’ alloy wheels or, at no additional cost, they can upgrade to assertive looking 17-inch ‘Black Optemic’ alloy wheels.
These features are in addition to those already found on the well-equipped entry level ZOE Dynamique Nav, which includes a hands-free keycard, rear parking sensors, automatic wipers and lights, climate control, and a leather steering wheel and gear knob. Also featuring is front and rear electric windows, and electric, heated and folding door mirrors. Voice-controlled satellite navigation is also standard on all Renault ZOEs via an embedded tablet in the centre console that includes a seven-inch touchscreen.
A variety of features ensure running a Renault ZOE is easy. This includes Z.E. Connected Services that takes communication between smartphone and car to another level, allowing features such as remote charging, monitoring of your charge status and pre-conditioning. The latter means the customer can pre-set the temperature of their ZOE so it’s ready for when they get in. Toasty in winter and cool in summer!
The Renault ZOE S Edition is priced from £19,270 on the road including the government Plug-in Car Grant. That’s £850 more than the Renault ZOE Dynamique Nav. Customers can choose to buy their Renault ZOE and lease the battery, or they can purchase the full car outright (referred to as ZOE i). Battery leasing begins from just £59 per month.
A choice of two motors is available in the both the ZOE Dynamique Nav and the ZOE S Edition. The Q90 Quick Charge motor allows for faster battery charging, from zero to 80 per cent in 65 minutes with a 43 kWh charger. The R110 motor has an extra 19 horsepower 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 their home that ensures the easiest possible charging experience at home.
