Renault has debuted the new 2020 Zoe online, with big changes under the skin in the form of a new battery and motor.

Don’t be fooled by the extent of the changes to the Zoe, as this is not an all-new model – instead, it is a major facelift of the current, seven-year-old car.

Mounted between the axles is a new 52kWh lithium-ion battery, which enables up to 390 kilometres of WLTP-certified range – a significant improvement on the outgoing car’s 300km quote.

To complement the range increase, charging has been given an upgrade. 50kW DC fast-charging is now available, with the Zoe able to add 145km of range in half an hour. Using a 7kW AC home wallbox, a full charge takes 9 hours and 25 minutes, while a roadside 22kW AC charger can add 126km in an hour.

Visually, the Zoe has undergone a moderate refresh. Up front there’s a more modern look, with a restyled bonent and a wider front bumper with full-LED headlights and a new grille. At the rear, the LED tail-lights have been enlarged, while wheel sizes between 15 and 17 inches will be offered.

 

The interior has been completely redesigned, with a look inspired by the latest Clio. There’s a 9.3-inch touchscreen mounted in the centre of the dash, while drivers look into a 10-inch digital instrument cluster. Other interior features include LED ambient lighting, wireless phone charging, an electronic parking brake and leather seats.
