The updated 2020 Renault Zoe has been revealed in Europe overnight headlined by an increase in power and driving range.
The big news is the Zoe now uses a 50kWh battery pack, up from 41kWh in the outgoing model. According to the WLPT cycle, the driving range is now up to 390 kilometres.
Along with the battery, the charging system has been upgraded to be compatible with 50kW DC chargers, along with Type-2 and Chameleon AC systems up to 22kW.
In Europe, the Zoe will be available with two electric motors with the first delivering 80kW and 225Nm. The other option brings 100kW and 245Nm which allows the Zoe to sprint from 0-100km/h in under 10 seconds on its way to a top speed of 140km/h.
Renault has also added a new B-mode to the Zoe’s transmission which intensifies the regenerative braking effect as soon as the driver releases the accelerator pedal.
On the outside, styling changes include a new bonnet, a wider front bumper, chrome inserts for the grille and around the fog lights and standard LED headlamps. At the rear, changes are limited to redesigned tail-lights.
New 15-, 16- and 17-inch wheel designs are also available, as are three new metallic paint finishes - Celadon Blue, Flame Red and Quartz White.
Plenty of work has been done to improve the interior, the dashboard has been redesigned and there is greater use of premium materials.
There’s also a fully-customisable 10-inch digital instrument cluster and a 9.3-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Other equipment highlights include autonomous emergency braking, lane keep assist, an electric park brake, wireless smartphone charging and a pair of USB ports in the back.
Renault’s local arm is yet to confirm local availability and pricing for the updated Zoe.
