Simply Revolutionary Rediscover the pleasure of driving with Renault ZOE.

ZOE is the first Renault car designed entirely as an all-electric model. The city car was first unveiled in 2012 and, at the 2016 Paris Motor Show in October, Renault unveiled a new model. Sporting an innovative new Z.E. 40 battery, the driving range of the new Renault ZOE has been doubled. It can now travel up to 400km without recharging. The new Z.E. 40 battery boasts 41kWh of useful energy, equivalent to almost double the storage capacity of the ZOE’s standard battery (22kWh of useful energy). Developed in close partnership with LG Chem, the battery uses high-energy density lithium-ion technology. Renault and LG engineers have succeeded in increasing storage capacity without making the battery any bigger or a lot heavier. It was optimised by working on the chemistry of the cells in order to increase their energy density, rather than stacking additional battery modules, a commonly used technique.
