The Renault Zoe To Be Launched In India Soon | Auto Expo 2018

Renault Zoe a closer look


As Europe’s number 1 selling EV last year from Renault, Renault ZOE is continuing to prove incredibly popular! And now the good news is that it’s coming to India soon! The Renault ZOE is an all-electric supermini with seating for five people and a decent-sized boot.

It offers a decent electric driving range, and it drives so well and features enough equipment that it can be considered a rival for the Ford Fiesta and Renault Clio, particularly as it costs the same to buy as a diesel-powered Clio. However as battery purchase or monthly rental will increase your costs, the numbers really need to stack up for a switch to electric to make sense. It has recently appeared in Auto Expo India 2018.  We tried to capture it and presented some of its unique features which makes it stand apart from its rivals.

The Zoe will be a technology demonstrator for Renault at the Motorshow. It boasts a range of up to 400km and a 0-80 percent charging time of just 65min via a quick charger. Renault claims a real-world driving range of 300km and also a full-charge time of 8-9 hours using a standard 7kW charger.

The hatch’s high driving range is achievable due to a new 41kWh battery, up from the 22kWh one used in the earlier model; the car received the larger battery with an update towards the end of 2016. Renault is certainly betting on Zoe in terms of its Electric Vehicle Lineup is concerned and it is clear now as we have seen its testing on Indian roads recently. Last year, the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance announced an ambitious plan to launch 12 new electric vehicles by 2022.  So consumers and car lovers are very excited to hear from Renault about its launch soon.
