Both the manufacturer Renault and E.Leclerc have also announced that they will collaborate together in a project called “Z.E Club des 50” which aims to expand the electric charging infrastructure across France as well as promote the image of EVs like the Renault Zoe.
The Renault Zoe represents the next model in the company’s Zero Emission (ZE) line-up which has already delivered other all-electric vehicles to the market including the Kangoo ZE van, Fluence ZE saloon and Twizy city car.
With the help of the newly announced collaboration, Renault hopes to signal to more potential customers on a greater element of accessibility and practicality offered by not only the new Zoe but the extra charging points which will make all electric cars in general easier to live with.
The Renault Zoe is set to reach the UK market starting from spring 2013. Prices for the car are expected to begin at £13,650 on-the-road, when including the £5,000 deduction from the UK Government Plug-in Car Grant.
Renault says that the new Zoe will have the longest range of any electric vehicle currently on the market, boasting a projected figure of 130 miles maximum. It’ll also be available with the manufacturer’s R-Link connectivity technology in the cabin which includes satellite navigation accessed by a touchscreen function.
UK motorists can look to place an order for a Renault Zoe at Perrys Renault Dealership based in Aylesbury.
