Renault Zoe customers receive home fast-charger

Following the recent changes to the Government Plug-in Car Grant (PiCG) and Electric Vehicle Homecharge Scheme, Renault is continuing its unique customer offer of supplying a free fully-installed fast-charging wallbox to all new ZOE customers.

The 7kW wallbox is available to retail customers and is supplied and installed by Renault’s partner, Chargemaster, who is the UK’s most successful supplier and operator of charging equipment.This offer in unique in the electric vehicle market and comes as part of the price of the Renault ZOE, with customers saving nearly £500.

The Chargemaster 7kW Homecharge unit enables ZOE owners to charge their vehicle from flat to full in three to four hours at their home. With the help of my ZE Inter@ctive timer app customers are able to schedule the time that ZOE is charged and benefit from considerable lower off-peak electricity prices.

Ben Fletcher, Electric Vehicle Product Manager, Groupe Renault UK, said: “The electric vehicle market is growing at an unprecedented rate, and a big part is customers discovering how cost-effective and easy to live with these cars are.By continuing to provide a home-charging unit installed at the customer’s address, we’re able to ensure that these points are even stronger for the ZOE than the competition.”

Thanks to the ZOE being fitted with a patented Chameleon Charger, unlike other EV’s it always makes the best use of whatever charging supply is available in order to speed up charging times. ZOE Dynamique Nav Rapid Charge can charge at up to 43kW, resulting in a 0-80% charge in just 30 minutes, depending on version.

The ZOE is an all-electric, five-door supermini available in three trim levels that come with a generous level of standard equipment including features such as climate control and sat-nav. ZOE also has a five-star Euro NCAP safety rating and was recently awarded the title of What Car? ‘Best Electric Car for less than £20,000” for the third time running, and ‘Best Electric Vehicle’ in the Auto Express Driver Power 2015 Survey.
