In an attempt to create a more uniform grading structure across the brand, Renault has renamed the trim levels on the Zoe and Twizy, and has shaken up the variants.
The Zoe gets trim levels Expression Nav, Dynamique Nav and Dynamique Nav Rapid Charge. Renault has also launched a new long-range motor which has been developed in-house for the Zoe. The new motor R240 is available in the Expression Nav and Dynamique Nav trims.
The new motor extends the operating range by almost 15 per cent to a class-leading 149 miles (239.79 km). The motor has a real world range of 71 to 106 miles (114.26 km to 170.59 km). It produces a maximum output of 65 kW (88 hp) and 220 Nm of torque. It features an integrated module, which is more compact, with no loss of performance, and reduces energy consumption with a faster charge time. The Chameleon charger has also been upgraded for the R240 motor.
The Expression Nav trim includes the R-Link satellite navigation with a 7-inch touchscreen, Renault Keycard entry system, Bluetooth, Climate control, radio with USB and AUX ports, cruise control, front electric windows and rear privacy glass.
Dynamique Nav trim gets a rear camera, Z.E. Interactive (remote battery charging, remote charge scheduling and remote interior temperature pre-conditioning), hands-free Keycard, 3D digital sound by Arkamys, rear electric windows, a leather steering wheel and gearshift, 16-inch Aerotronic alloy wheels and automatic lights and wipers.
The Dynamique Nav Rapid Charge trim retains the previous motor which also produces 65 kW (88hp) and 220 Nm of torque. It can be recharged to 80 per cent of capacity in 30 minutes through a 43kW charge point and has range of 130 miles (209.21km), with a real world range of 64 to 93 miles (102.99 km to 149.66 km). It is similarly specced as the Dynamique Nav trim.
The Renault Twizy undergoes minor trim level and cosmetic changes. The Expression Trim replaces the Urban trim and Dynamique replaces Technic trim while the Cargo trim remains unchanged.
The Expression Trim comes standard with a driver airbag, a single-speed automatic transmission, range and eco-score indicators, regenerative braking, a battery gauge and econometer, 13-inch Grey Snowflake wheel trims and more. The Dynamique trim gets 13-inch Diamond alloy wheels, and choice of 14 two-tone colour collections for the wheel arches, seat covers and mirror housings. The Cargo version of Twizy sacrifices the rear seat, expanding capacity to 180 litres with a lockable storage area.
