How the Renault Zoe can persuade electric car sceptics

Recently Renault launched the Zoe supermini, the fourth all-electric vehicle by the French manufacturer to arrive to the UK market. This car could potentially have a far greater impact then any electric vehicle (EV) that has preceded it. Not just in terms of sales but also how it could affect the impressions of certain sections of the public.

While the Renault Zoe has been collecting favourable reviews from many of the best known motoring websites in the UK, Britain still retains EV sceptics who will inevitably view the Zoe in a negative light.

In recent times the main areas of concern for those sceptical of all-electric cars has been the pricing and range. However the Renault Zoe looks to quash these potential worries with an appealing starting price of just £13,995, after the Government’s £5,000 Plug-in car grant.

Buyers are also charged from £70 a month to lease the expensive batteries which power it. A wall box to charge the car is included in the price.

This starting price for the Renault Zoe is far lower compared to many other EVs and even hybrid vehicles on the market which are priced closer to the £30,000 region.

Renault compares ownership of the Zoe to buying and running a £14,000 diesel-engined Ford Fiesta and filling it once a month with fuel.

With its brand new Zoe, Renault argues the case that the car can provide savings in other areas as well when compared even to other superminis with small modern petrol or diesel engines.

The Renault Zoe is exempt from road tax, attracts no benefit-in-kind levy if used as a company car, and businesses can write down the full cost of it against tax in the first year. Buyers in London are also excused the £10 weekday congestion charge, even with the more stringent conditions applied from the start of this week.

In a move to alleviate fears over the use and maintenance of an electric car’s battery, Renault has also outlined that the Zoe’s batteries will be replaced or repaired once they can no longer hold more than 75 per cent of maximum charge any time, within 10 years and regardless of the number of owners the car has had.

On official testing the Renault Zoe delivers a projected travel range of 130 miles, though in real life the French manufacturer estimates a truer figure of 90-100 miles in the summer, or 65 miles during the winter.

Renault has commented: A Zoe is 75 per cent cheaper per mile to fuel than a diesel car and 25% cheaper per mile to service and maintain.

The company continues: There are already 1,700 public charging points, and these are scattered around the country and not all in London, and in many cases parking and charging in them is free. The website www.zap-map shows where they are, and Sainsbury’s and Tesco have said they are going to start rolling out charging points soon.
