THE game-changing range of the all-electric Renault ZOE has contributed to the stylish city car being voted the ‘Best Small Company Car’ at the Carbuyer Awards 2018, which were held at a ceremony in London.
The award recognises that the Renault ZOE, with its ultra-low running costs, impressive range of up to 250 miles (NEDC), represents an unbeatable proposition for business users searching for a compact car that will be both exceptionally efficient and usable.
On the decision to award the highly-coveted ‘Best Small Company Car’ award to the Renault ZOE, Stuart Milne, Editor, Carbuyer, said: “The Renault ZOE packs plenty into a very small package. It’s good to drive, comfortable and more spacious than you’d ever think possible. Thanks to its electric power, it sits in the lowest nine per cent BIK band, but what really seals the deal is its range. The standard car can travel up to 149 miles on a charge, but ZOE Z.E.40 versions are capable of an impressive 250 miles.”
The Renault ZOE is an all-electric, five-door supermini available in a choice of three trim levels and with two battery options. Despite its affordability, the entry level Expression Nav comes with a high level of standard specification, including items such as climate control and the 7-inch touch screen R-Link 2 infotainment system with sat nav. In Dynamique Nav, features include hands free keycard, automatic lights and wipers and rear parking sensors. The new top-of-the-range Signature Nav trim provides buyers with features including supple leather upholstery, a seven speaker BOSE audio system, heated front seats and a rear parking camera.
ZOE is the best-selling electric vehicle in Europe and more than 4,500 ZOE have been sold since launching in the UK in 2013. ZOE is one of three models in Renault’s diverse electric vehicle range which also includes the Twizy quadricycle, the Kangoo Van Z.E. and the forthcoming Master Z.E. large panel van.
