Great car as a package.

07 Apr 2021

Renault Zoe Pros and Cons

Pros:
  • Nice looking car

  • 22 kw charging is great 

  • Cheap and long service intervals 18,000 miles and about £100 for a service.

  • Long warranty 5 years 100,000 miles 

  • Real buttons not touch buttons and real knobs to change heating controls not hidden in the touchscreen! 

  • Great boot space for size of car some cars class above no better 

  • Great range for price 180-200 winter and 240-280 miles summer achieved 

  • Auto high beams that work 99% of the time and great led headlights! 

  • Fast enough real life 0-60 speed might not look good on paper but is perfectly acceptable and got power right above National speed limit so you won’t be left wanting if you get the r135 motor !  For the size of car it’s good enough.

  • Good sounds system for price and has rear speakers 

  • Good discounts off rrp 

  • Good build quality for price 

  • Good dealerships 

  • Two level regenerative braking settings and a blended brake Pedal so you get all the regen you need 

  • Good spec for price

  • Good infotainment system 

  • Auto handbrake 

  • Not bad seats not the best but good enough to do 420 miles in one day 

  • Not bad space in the rear not good for tall passengers but normal height is good for size of the car 

Cons:
  • Having to pay for arm rest ! And when you do you lose a cup holder !

  • As with most converted left hand drive cars into right hand drive the glove box is too small to be much use 

  • Bit slow rapid charging speed for 2020 mid 40s in ideal conditions but you get ok speed upto 80% so 10-80% only about 50 minutes not great but we did 1050 miles in 4 days and didn’t wait for the car much ! It ok manufacturers quoting max charging speed but what speed you get average is what matters !

  • No under bonnet Storage 

  • Regen does not bring car to a stop only down to 5-6 mph so need to use foot break to stop the car.

  • No adaptive cruise control but it’s not a big thing as ev as so easy to drive.

Owner Review

Great car as a package.

The Zoe is a great car as a package for the money and you can get good discounts , you get good amount of toys for the size of car and it’s well made for price and good warranty ,with good long service intervals at good price, good dealerships network and good size boot for size of the car even some cars a class above not got much more boot space, good headunit and real buttons not touch buttons and real heating controls not on the touchscreen.
