Renault to sell the Zoe for €15,000, French newspaper says

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

If the rumor that the Renault will sell the Zoe ZE model for only EUR15,000, then this stands as one of the lowest prices linked to an electric vehicle to date.

French publication Le Figaro, which cited an unnamed official, first broke the news about the price. Zoe is reportedly priced this low because of a EUR5,000-euro credit from the government.

Owners would have to pay an extra EUR100 to rent the battery for the Zoe on top of the cost of the car. At the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Zoe was introduced as a "zero-emission vehicle which can also possess a dynamic, edgy, attractive design.

Features include a 70kW electric motor that can develop 226 Nm of torque and batteries, which enable the car to run 100 km. On the roof of the vehicle are honeycomb photovoltaic cells, which produce energy that's used to power the car's systems.

Zoe's battery could be recharged using any of the three methods: standard which will take between four and eight hours, quick, up to 20 minutes, and Quickdrop which means to change the battery all together.

The car features scissor doors while butterfly-style doors adorn the rear access. Its layout permits cargo space to be accessed from the side and from the back as well.
