In the last NCAP crash test from December 2021, the base model Zoe "Zen" did not get a single star in the overall rating. The shock at Renault must have been very deep, because the first test in 2013 was still a full 5 stars. However, the revised safety standards in the crash test now make the basic model look significantly worse. Renault reacted to this with the current revision of the price list.
You won't find the basic versions that can be ordered in the current price list. Instead of the previous basic models, the Evolution equipment variant is now the cheapest entry-level model. And a comprehensive assistance package to increase safety was also included here. Lane Departure Warning, Lane Departure Warning and Emergency Brake Assist were not part of the basic equipment in the NCAP test version. These components are now standard equipment in the new basic model. A look at the new price list shows an improved price-performance ratio.
Renault Zoe Evolution as an entry-level model
The Renault ZOE, updated last year, is still Europe's and Germany's best-selling electric car. With the new equipment variants, it makes fewer compromises than before when it comes to electromobility: The basic model ZOE Evolution starts at a price of 36.840 euros with a 52 kWh battery capacity and enables a range of up to 395 kilometers. All base models are already equipped with one-pedal mode for comfortable driving, a noise simulator for warning pedestrians and full LED headlights with C-shaped LED daytime running lights.
If you value more power, you should choose the equipment level of the Zoe Evolution in connection with the more powerful R135 engine with 100 kW/135 hp for 37.480 euros. The equipment package has once again been significantly expanded technically with a blind spot warning system, a speed warning system and the EASY LINK online multimedia system with a 7-inch touchscreen.
The Renault Zoe Iconic R135 as a top version
The Zoe Iconic with the R135 electric motor and the 52 kWh lithium-ion battery remains in the range as a top version at a price of 39.690 euros.
The top model is based on all of the components mentioned above in combination with the winter package. Accordingly, the Easy Link infotainment system with navigation, automatic air conditioning, reversing camera and heating for the seats and steering wheel are included. The special features of the Riviera equipment are fabric upholstery made from 100% recycled materials in anthracite with side panels in leather look and decorative gold stitching.
Optional extras as the icing on the cake
In addition to the equipment packages on offer, there are also some interesting optional extras for the Renault Zoe, which we are going to present again here.
The DC charging port
The CCS charging connection (50 kW DC) for fast charging with direct current should actually be part of the basic equipment. Renault can be paid well again. In any case, from our point of view, the DC charging connection is the most important resale argument in view of the future competitive situation and is available for €1.100. The charging cable for use at home is also charged extra at 500 euros.
The winter package
Although the winters have been comparatively mild in recent years, a heated steering wheel and, above all, heated seats can provide a more comfortable driving experience even when the outside temperature is less than 10 degrees. The surcharge of 450 euros upgrades the car again. (Standard equipment on the Riviera model!)
Aluminum loading sill protection
If you want to better protect the upper part of the rear bumper, you can do it directly with this practical and custom-made loading sill protector. With the chrome version, you also set an eye-catcher at the rear of the vehicle for 78 euros.
Electric bonus 2022
Details can be found in the Renault explanation:
The electric bonus includes a federal subsidy of €6.000 and a Renault share of at least €3.000. These amounts are still to be deducted from the purchase price. Ask your participating Renault partner about their offers” (source Renault Germany price list valid from 22.07.2022/XNUMX/XNUMX)
