The Renault Zoe has undergone some small modifications in this new year 2022. On the program: very slight price reductions and a revised nomenclature for the different trim levels.
A true bestseller in Renault’s electric catalog, the electric city car Zoé is entering the year 2022 with new strings to its bow. The French manufacturer has indeed applied some small changes that should delight consumers. First, know that the trim levels are changing their name.
Completed Life, Zens and Intens, and places in Balance, Evolution and Techno. Here, the French group brings consistency to its range by harmonizing it with that of the Renault Mégane E-Tech. This should allow us to see more clearly from one electric car to another thanks to a unified nomenclature.
Very small price reduction
In a second step, the manufacturer has changed the price list of his Zoé in small steps. Do not expect drops of several thousand euros: you have to count here in hundreds of euros. But that’s still the catch. For example, the Balance, formerly known under the name of Life (32,300 euros), drops to 32,000 euros.
Above all, and as finely remarked Caradisiac, new standard equipment is invited to the party despite the price reduction: the 7-inch touch screen combined with the Easy Link multimedia system are available by default, as are cruise control and electric mirrors.
The Evolution finish (33,500 euros) borrows the same technical bases as the Equilibre, namely an engine with a power of 80 kW (110 hp) and a battery of 52 kWh, but offers more options such as GPS navigation .
Finally, the Techo is now tearing at the price of 35,200 euros, against 36,000 euros on the old Intens, this time being fitted with 17-inch rims, emergency braking, a induction charger and Easy Park Assist. All supported by a more powerful 100 kW (135 hp) engine, but the same 52 kWh accumulator.
The Renault Mégane E-Tech in ambush
After a successful 2021 – second in the electric sales rankings – the Renault Zoe is likely to continue its momentum in 2022, but perhaps not so sluggishly. Indeed, the Renault Mégane E-Tech is entering the manufacturer’s catalog, at a price starting at 35,200 euros, excluding the ecological bonus of 6,000 euros.
In short: on paper and according to the first tests of the specialized press, this Mégane E-Tech has good arguments to make which could overshadow the Zoe, whose end of life has also been registered for the year 2024.
