Renault’s popular electric vehicle has driven away with the Affordable Electric Car of the Year award at this year’s Auto Express Awards.
With an impressive range of 245 miles, the Renault Zoe has been designed to accommodate a range of lifestyles and, available from £26,995 after the Plug-in Car Grant, the Zoe is an affordable option to help drivers make the switch.
Judges praised the Renault Zoe on the high-level equipment it comes with as standard and for its driveability, acknowledging it as the best affordable EV on the market today.
Steve Fowler, Editor-in-chief, Auto Express, said: "The ZOE really came of age in its move to this second-generation model and for lots of reasons. Thanks to its 50kWh battery, it offers up to 245 miles of range, which is more than EVs costing far more, and it bolsters this performance with a strong charging capability. Yet if you don’t need that, cheaper models are available. It’s quiet, smooth, practical and packed with tech, making it the best affordable EV on the market."
It wasn’t the only Renault model to take home silverware this year. The All-New Captur, the Clio and the Alpine A110 were also recognised, bringing home the Small SUV of the Year, Supermini of the Year and Coupe of the Year titles.
Vincent Tourette, Managing Director, Groupe Renault UK, said: “We are absolutely delighted to collect these awards and that Auto Express has recognised Groupe Renault for its class-leading excellence across a broad range of vehicles. These accolades are an excellent illustration of how we strive to meet today’s mobility challenges, while still providing customers with affordable, quality vehicles that deliver a high level of driver enjoyment.”
