No stranger to awards in EV categories, the Renault ZOE has scooped ‘Best Used Electric Small Car’ at WhatCar? Electric Car Awards for the second consecutive year. Voted by the WhatCar? Team, the trusted experts praised the ZOE for its style, practicality, unrivalled value and all competence. The ZOE is the complete package.
After retaining its title, the ZOE has reaffirmed its status as a leading small electric vehicle on the market, regardless of whether our customers are opting for new or used. Along with a host of other awards, the accolades come at a time when consumers are searching the most affordable way of switching to electric. The vehicle has been famed for it’s style, ease of driving and remarkable value for money.
Mark Pearson, What Car? Used Car Editor said: “In an ever-growing and hugely competitive field, the Renault Zoe remains our favourite small electric car if you’re buying used, thanks to its all-round competence and remarkable affordability. Buy a Zoe of any age and you’ll find it practical and stylish as well as smooth and easy to drive. If you buy one of the later versions, it comes with a very respectable range, too. Its success means it’s also a plentiful car on the used market, and because of that you’ll always find a decent version to suit your budget. It’s that value for money, added to its overall usability, that means for us there’s still nothing in this class to touch a used Zoe.”
Guillaume Sicard, Country Head UK & Managing Director Renault Brand UK, added: “The Zoe E-Tech Electric continues to win awards all over Europe, and we’re delighted to accept this latest accolade. It demonstrates that the Zoe E-Tech Electric’s winning formula remains stronger than ever with savvy buyers in both the new and used car markets, where customers appreciate the Zoe’s blend of style, excellent range, value for money, quality and reliability. Buying a used vehicle can be quite daunting for some, especially if they are considering the switch to an electric vehicle, but this award gives used car customers the reassurance that the Zoe E-Tech Electric will provide them with a highly versatile, affordable and reliable EV ownership experience.”
With a range of up 238 miles (WLTP) on a single charge thanks to 52kWh battery, Rapid 50kW DC charging options are also available. The ZOE is available in a choice of Techno and Iconic trims with high level of standard specification that includes climate control, heated seats and steering wheel, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. With a 5-year, 100,000-mile warranty, drivers will have peace of mind when purchasing a ZOE.
