Renault have upgraded their Zoe electric car, with better range, faster charging and improved ADAS driver assist features. The new 52 kWh battery that equips the New ZOE extends its range to 395 kilometers in the WLTP cycle, says Renault, with an increase of +25%, without changing the size of the battery.
By adopting rapid DC charging up to 50 kW, the New ZOE offers the most extensive versatility for charging stations available in Europe. The New ZOE recovers up to 150 kilometres of range in 30 minutes.
With the introduction of the R135, a 100 kW engine (equivalent to 135 hp), the New ZOE offers even more acceleration control and responsiveness. Driving pleasure and comfort are enhanced, especially on the motorway, with acceleration from 80 to 120 km/h 2.2 seconds faster than the previous generation.
The New ZOE also offers a new driving mode that simplifies city traffic. Called “B mode”, it provides intensified decelerations allowing a reduced use of the brake pedal. Finally, the electrical architecture has been entirely redesigned to accommodate several advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS).
