"What Car? declares a used Zoe is much better value than other nearly new small EVs due to its affordability and driving range, reinforcing the Zoe’s suitability and appeal as both a new and used car"
With the Zoe also winning the title of ‘Affordable Electric Car of the Year’ at the Auto Express 2021 New Car Awards earlier this month, and What Car? now announcing the Zoe as the ‘Best Used Electric Small Car,’ it solidifies the Zoe’s credentials as a leading new and used small EV on the market. What Car? – widely trusted as one of the most comprehensive sources of car advice – praised the Zoe ZE40 R110 from 2017-2019 for its affordability, electric range, and all-round driving experience.
Jim Holder, Editorial Director, What Car? said: “The Zoe brings zero-emissions motoring within the reach of the masses, due to its affordability. Whether you buy an older or newer Zoe, what you’ll get is a small hatchback that’s smooth and easy to drive, with a very respectable range, and if you go for our recommended version, the later ZE40 R110, it’s nippy as well. Ride comfort is also good, paired with competitive interior space. For our money, a used Zoe is much better value than other nearly new small EVs, and with plenty of specifications of the Zoe to choose from, you’ll find a decent version of this great all-rounder to suit your budget.”
Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Renault Group UK, added: “The Zoe’s winning formula has led the EV market for nearly 10 years now, and the recent awards for Europe’s bestselling electric car in 2020 reinforces its success and suitability for new and used EV buyers. We are delighted to accept this award, especially as the Zoe’s impressive range contributed to its win. Last year, we introduced a 52kWh battery providing an official range of up to 245 miles, which means the Zoe, both new and used, allows drivers to comfortably fulfil their everyday needs, with zero emissions in use.”
The multi-award-winning Zoe E-Tech with restyled exterior including a more dynamic design and new colours, introduced last year, has rapid 50kW charging which charges the battery from zero to 80 per cent in only 70 minutes. Customers can choose from Play, Iconic and GT Line trim levels, with each offering a comprehensive and well-equipped standard specification.
