This is the new Renault Zoe!
Renault’s updated the Zoe to give it some new tech, tweak the design, and more importantly, they’ve fitted a new battery and motor to give it better range!
Of course, we’re not short on choice when it comes to the small EV market, with competition like the Peugeot e208 and MINI Electric already standing out from the crowd. So does the new Zoe have what it takes to go one better and become the must-have small EV of 2020?
Check out Mat’s latest review to find out!

    • Yes, the Zoe is an absolute brilliant car, solid, comfy, complete, nav is good, perfect voice control, long range, silent, reliable, enough space (much more than Mini and 208), good charging. I like it a lot!

  • What we want to know: in cold British weather range in every day urban environment? Are the pre- 2020 Zoe's good value? How long did the presenter have the car for? Has he lived day in/day out with the car over a period of time; say a month or two? Stop the silly b******s with electrical scooter and general silliness. Facts and real world ownership please.

  • Nobody ever charges from 0-100%. More realistic rapid charge timing would be how long it takes from 20-80% which is what you'd do on a roadtrip. It's probably about 40mins so a lunch stop at a service station.

  • This was my favorite rental car until a few months ago when it decided to simply stop on a highway, with errors which made no sense. Maybe the new model is nicer but it feels like a cheaper car inside for that price. Usually I am not a fan of Matt's cribbing about plasticiky bits, but here he is spot on! The good part, when it runs its very easy to handle, very quiet (duh!) and its probably a good city car. On motorway, I felt it struggles. It is an entry level car and at that its very good.

  • Lots of comments say it expensive for a cheap car and it is in a way. But you can't compare it to other 30k petrol cars. Its not 30k really. Grant and CARWOW make 22k and of that about 8k is the battery (approx price per Kw is £160 x 50kw battery) So the rest of the car is £14k ish. Now you can buy a BRAND NEW renault petrol engine (Megane) for less than £1500, although not retail from your Renault dealer. So is any Megane available for £15k? Nope. Batteries are VERY expensive so until that is sorted electric cars will cost alot more than the equivalent ICE car, its just the way it is. I think the Zoe is a nice if slighlty bland and unadventurous looking car. It could just be a petrol hatchback. But electric hatches with a 200 mile range kind of cost this much. The sum is simple Smaller battery = cheaper but less range.

  • Wow, I thought I’d been harsh on my channel when I reviewed our own Zoe but this is in a whole new league! But I don’t disagree with anything that Matt says. The Leaf ride must be horrendous if it’s worse than the Zoe. But TBH as a first electric car, it’s pretty good overall. It’s not really a £30,000 car though, more a £15,000 car with a £15,000 battery pack.

  • £30k for a tiny car where no one can sit comfortably and where you have to wait for an hour and a half at a service station to re-charge on the way home from a long journey.You can get a half decent ICE car twice the size for that sort of money. I just don't see the attraction of electric cars. What if you don't have a drive way or garage ? You can't charge it overnight.It's an expensive and flawed technology and definitely not a replacement for the ICE.
