The second generation ZOE hasn't been formally announced by Renault. The new ZOE is expected to get some small exterior updates and more major updates to the interior. The most important change will be the drivetrain: the battery will be increased to around 60 kWh. Additionally, the ZOE will (possibly as an option) recieve a more powerful motor. This new drivetrain should result in a range of about 250 miles on the WLTP cycle. As an added bonus, rapid charging via CCS at 100 kW will finally become a possibility. All specifications with * are estimates.

Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Renault Zoe Gen 2. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

NOTE: Renault has not released details about the on-board charger of the Zoe Gen 2. The information below is based on estimatation of the most likely on-board charger.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 30h45m 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 19h15m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 9h45m 24 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 400V / 3x16A 11 kW 6h30m 35 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 400V / 3x32A 22 kW 3h15m 70 mph

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Renault Zoe Gen 2.

Renault has not released details about rapid charging the Zoe Gen 2. The information below is based on estimated values of the most likely rapid charging capabilities.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%
  • Time: time needed to charge from 10% to 80%
  • Rate: average charging speed over a session from 10% to 80%

All about the Renault Zoe Gen 2

Pricing

The Renault Zoe Gen 2 has an estimatedn On The Road Price (OTR) of £31,500. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Renault Zoe Gen 2 is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £3,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Renault Zoe Gen 2 is £28,000.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Renault Zoe Gen 2 is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The estimated maximum power of the Renault Zoe Gen 2 is 95 kW (127 hp). The estimated maximum torque is 203 lb-ft. The Renault Zoe Gen 2 is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in an estimated 9.0 seconds. The estimated top speed is 87 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Renault Zoe Gen 2 has an estimated total capacity of 60 kWh. The usable capacity is 60 kWh (estimate). An estimated range of about 225 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 155 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 335 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 22 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 3 hours 15 minutes. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 9 hours 45 minutes and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 30 hours 45 minutes.

Rapid charging is possible through a CCS connection (expected). The maximum rapid charge power is 100 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 80 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 35 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 155 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The estimated combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Renault Zoe Gen 2 is about 265 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 152 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 385 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 175 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Renault Zoe Gen 2 emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
