The Renault ZOE has won its fourth consecutive What Car? Award being named the ‘Best Electric Car’, as well as ‘Best Electric Car for less than £20,000’ at the recent What Car? Awards.
With its all-electric Q90 Z.E. 40 battery, the ZOE was also a finalist in the Technology Award thanks to its battery providing almost double the previous storage capacity, delivering a 250-mile range (NEDC), whilst retaining fast charging times at an accessible price.
On awarding the ZOE for a fourth consecutive year, Steve Huntingford, Editior, What Car? said: “This win shows just how much this recent update has improved the ZOE. Realistically, it’s now possible to drive for 174 miles between each charge, up from the 106 miles of the previous battery.” He also went on to explain how the ZOE is also practical, handles well and has a generous array of standard equipment as well as being comfortable making it a “brilliant all-rounder.”
Paul Flanagan, Managing Director, Renault UK, said of the result: “The new 2017 model year Renault ZOE now delivers the best range of any mainstream electric vehicle which, along with interior and exterior upgrades, continues to prove that zero emissions vehicles can be stylish, practical and comfortable.”
The ZOE is an all-electric, five-door supermini which is available in three trim levels and two battery options. Despite its affordability, the entry level Expression Nav comes with a high level of standard equipment including features such as climate control and a 7-inch touch screen R-Link 2 infotainment system with sat nav. Opt for slightly higher spec versions and you’ll get the addition of hands free keycard, automatic lights and wipers and rear parking sensors.
With the new R90 Z.E. 40 battery, the ZOE offers a range of up to 250 miles and can charge from zero to 80% in as little as 60 minutes thanks to its patented Chameleon Charger.
ZOE is the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe and more than 4,500 ZOE’s have been sold since its launch in the UK in 2013.
