New Renault Zoe available to reserve

For £49 customers can reserve the Clio-size electric supermini, which will be the cheapest electric car on the market at £13,650 when it arrives in Spring 2013.

The Renault Zoe is a five-door compact hatchback capable of seating four and runs on purely electric energy.

Its clever electric powertrain delivers zero tailpipe emissions and is road tax free and exempt from the London congestion charge.

The Renault Zoe is also one of the more practical electric cars on sale today with a range of up to 130 miles – 30 more than the Nissan Leaf and the Renault Fluence saloon.

It can be charged within nine hours from a standard charger – or as little as 30 minutes using a fast-charging station and offers surprisingly sprightly performance figures.

The electric motors deliver 88hp and deliver 220Nm, the car can reach speeds of up to 84mph while maintaining a noise-free and comfortable drive.

As the Renault Zoe launch date draws nearer Renault has released more details about the car’s specification from launch.

Renault has announced three trim levels for the Zoe; Expression, Dynamique Zen and Dynamique Intens. All models will be fitted with an ‘R-Link’ screen which incorporates voice control, a seven-inch touchscreen and TomTom satellite navigation.

The Expression trim also includes a USB port, Bluetooth, climate control, cruise control and the ability to charge the car remotely.

Higher trim levels get leather seats, rear parking sensors and alloy wheels depending on the specification chosen.

The Renault Zoe is also fitted with a groundbreaking system that helps filter bad smells and pollutants as well as pollen and soot.

The new Renault Zoe is available to reserve now. Renault Zoe prices start from £13,650 and battery hire costs £70 per month.
