The Renault ZOE E-Tech Electric has been crowned ‘Best Used Electric Small Car’ at the 2021 What Car? Electric Car Awards.

The best pure electric and plug-in hybrid models across a range of categories, including Used Car sections for the first time, have been selected by the industry experts at What Car? to support people keen to switch to electric.

As well as picking up ‘Affordable Electric Car of the Year’ at the Auto Express 2021 New Car Awards, the model winning ‘Best Used Electric Small Car’ in addition to this has confirmed ZOE’s’ credentials as a leading new and used small EV on the market. What Car? – widely trusted as a comprehensive source of car advice – praise 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 award-winning ZOE model with a restyled exterior including new colours and a more dynamic design, 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.
