In terms of its combustion engines, Renault has the Geneva Motor Show to the latest phase of its powertrain Its Energy range sees the of two new internal combustion engines: the Energy TCe 90 and the diesel Energy dCi 90. All the that feature in the Renault range deliver a raft of aimed at enhancing powertrain while at the same time low fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

the Mégane Collection 2012 which stands out as the flagship of quality drive, includes new engines that all combine enjoyment, fuel efficiency and reliability for even greater The model embodies the Renault expertise in the realm of quality, extends from the design to the of all the vehicles it markets.

Last but by no least, after an initial of four concept cars, new design strategy is now visible in its Indeed, New Twingo and ZOE both the brand’s new front-end styling not to mention Twizy which a class of its own.

ZOE will be the of the Renault Z.E. range and the on show at Geneva represents the final design. In addition to its size, attractive styling and price tag, it showcases technological excellence when it to electric vehicles. ZOE also the beginning of a new era of electric mobility for all and our commitment to electric vehicles. It an important step for Renault has a 110-year history of making innovations a concrete reality for motorists.

Electric mobility for all, just £13,650

Today, for the time, it is possible to buy an electric at a price comparable to that of a city car in markets where tax are available. For example:

In the UK (Government Plug-in Car Grant is available for up to 25% of the car’s purchase up to a maximum of £5,000), prices for ZOE the grant deduction will from just £13,650

In tax-paid prices start €15,750 (with tax incentive of deducted)

Even in countries tax incentives are not currently available, for ZOE are still particularly attractive. In for example, ZOE’s catalogue is CHF 22,800, which is equivalent to £15,750 at current exchange

In the UK, monthly battery hire from £70 (9,000 month contract), inclusive of breakdown assistance (which flat batteries).

As of today, can pre-order ZOE in 11 countries at who reserve ZOE will be offered a drive and will be contacted on a basis as soon as the car goes on later in 2012.

ZOE, a of innovations for a new form of motoring

than 60 patents have filed for ZOE’s design. interactivity and occupant wellbeing are at the of its innovations.

ZOE, the first electric vehicle to be homologated an NEDC cycle range of 130

In terms of autonomy, Renault has the ‘Range OptimiZEr’, which three major innovations regenerative braking, a heat and MICHELIN EnergyTM E-V tyres). Due to the range of ZOE is the highest of the electric in mass production. In the NEDC ZOE is homologated with a range of 130

In real conditions, for example, in use, the owner will achieve around 60 miles in weather and 90 miles in temperate

New-generation regenerative braking practically all of the energy otherwise during braking, without any impact on ZOE’s on-road The car offers a smooth drive no jarring electric motor The system works in two ways:

The energy produced under and braking is recovered by the motor so it can be converted into electricity to the battery. This feature is fitted to Fluence Z.E. and Z.E.

When the driver the brake pedal, the system distributes the braking effort applying the brake pads and the motor brake with a to maximising the use of the electric motor and charging of the battery.

The heat provides excellent thermal without detracting from the range. This system, operates in the same way as reverse-cycle consumes very little It produces warm or cool air by reversing the cycle of operation.

The heat pump generates 2kW of cooling or 3kW of heat with 1kW of electricity. The cabin temperature is more constant since it is not by the heat given off by the motor.

The EnergyTM E-V tyre is a Michelin co-developed with Renault as a premiere for ZOE. The tyre enhanced energy efficiency to vehicle range. Its rubber tread design and sidewalls been engineered to withstand high torque and address the demands of electric vehicles, yet it delivers the same safety and performance as all other Michelin

Available in 15- and 16-inch versions, tyre is fitted to all ZOE models as equipment.

The Chameleon charger electric vehicle charging

ZOE is the electric vehicle to feature the charger. Patented by Renault, charger is compatible with all levels up to 43kW. Charging at a charging station can take 30 minutes and nine hours. For ZOE can be charged in an hour at 22kW.

R-Link also a host of new functions dedicated to driving and range management: of energy consumption, display of flows and pre-programming of battery The navigation system offers services such as a display of the operating radius based on the remaining in the battery, suggestions for the energy-efficient itineraries and the location of battery charging stations on country), as well as their availability. R-Link also drivers view their performance and improve their with ‘eco-scoring’ and tips and personalised).
