Renault Zoe Review

Next to the innovative Renault Twizy, the Renault Zoe is the company’s more conventional competitor. Although it won’t merit a second look from passer bys next to other, more popular brands, the Zoe is what we expect to be on the front line of generating the brand sales for its targeted market.

Pros

The Zoe is the French brand’s fourth electric plug-in production car, joining the four door Fluence Z.E., Z.E. Kangoo, and Twizy city car lineup. Environmentally conscious individuals will appreciate the non-fuel dependence of the car and be able to minimize car usage given the battery charge required of this kind of vehicle. Its electric motor does not disappoint in performance, as it is able to sprint from zero to 62mph in just 13.5 seconds. Expect your top speed to go as fast as 84mph.

Speed isn’t the only upside to this vehicle; you can easily accelerate among velocities as the body maintains agility as you rev. No need to double step; your car goes into full action as soon as you step down. Light steering complements this great feature, making the Zoe a very easy car to drive. You also won’t have a problem weaving the car into tight spaces as the Zoe features a small turning circle for visibility. If you want more visibility to parking and going through difficult corners, then you can add a reversing camera by getting the Intens variation or having it added to the other versions.

The Zoe sports a wide range of equipment—from 15-inch alloy wheels that are energy efficient, Bluetooth equipment, an SD card and USB, a TomTom sat-nav system that is voice-controlled, plus a seven-inch touchscreen.

Cons

The car’s tailing off due to wind resistance could make driving a problem on motorway speeds. But given that most individuals getting the Zoe would go for slower or wouldn’t be on motorways for too long, this is just a slight mishap. You’ll have to compromise or control how often you have the car go on its maximum range.

The car has only one gear, which serious car enthusiasts might have a problem with. For drivers after the basics, however, it makes the Zoe quite easy to operate. All you have to do is pull the gear level downwards, set it on D, and you’re on your way. Reverse is the opposite option. The two options make the car your last choice for more difficult and challenging conditions.

Being an electrically powered vehicle, you’ll have to charge the batteries fully before taking the car out for the entire day. The charger is a Chameleon that operates from 3KW to 43KW in range; make sure that your plug is able to take on such power. Expect a full charge from 30 minutes to 9 hours, depending on the kind of connection that you use. The smartest option is to have it charged every night.

Overall as an electrically charged vehicle, the Zoe performs well and does not disappoint. The number of added features such as a climate control system to adjust the car cabin according to the weather makes it the best companion for an everyday drive.
