The New Renault ZOE has triumphed in the 2020 What Car? Awards, winning the 'Best Small Electric Car' title overall. This success represents the seventh consecutive year that ZOE has been honoured at the annual What Car? ceremony, which has been running for over 40 years and is recognised as one of the most respected in the industry.
Speaking about New ZOE's success, Steve Huntingford, Editor of What Car? said: 'The Renault ZOE won a price point last year but this overhauled model represents such an improvement that it's the best small electric car you can buy. With its bigger battery, it covered 192 miles in our real range test- around a third more than its predecessor. What's more it's classier inside and more enjoyable to drive, thanks to brisk acceleration, composed handling and a settled ride on the motorway.'
Commenting on the What Car? wins, Gilles Normand, Senior Vice President, Electric Vehicles & Mobility Services, Groupe Renault said: 'We are delighted that New ZOE has been recognised by the team at What Car? with this incredible award. To win for a seventh year gives the whole Renault team a great sense of pride and rewards all the investments made in training our people in all functions. Electric vehicles are becoming ever more popular with buyers and Renault remains at the forefront of the market with the New ZOE. With greater range, more technology and enhanced trims, customers have an even greater opportunity to find a model that fits in with their lifestyle.'
New ZOE has been refreshed inside and out, while its new 52kWh battery results in a class-leading range of 245 miles under latest WLTP testing conditions. Dynamic exterior changes give the New ZOE a sleek and modern appearance, helped in no small part by the inclusion of standard LED headlamps across the range.
Inside, New ZOE has been treated to an equally thorough redesign and enhanced technology, including the addition of a 10-inch TFT instrument cluster and EASY LINK infotainment system with 9.3-inch portrait screen, which features real time charging information and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Iconic models also include a unique seat fabric that's made from 100% recycled materials.
In addition, Renault offers retail customers that purchase a ZOE a free 7kW wall box charger fully-installed in their home to ensure the best possible electric experience.
New ZOE is priced from GBP25,670 OTR including the Plug-in Car Grant and is available to order now.
