It’s Star Wars fever once again, and the second installation of the trilogy sequel -- “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” -- is finally hitting theaters. Avid fans of the franchise would love to know that a limited edition Renault Zoe will soon arrive with Star Wars special touches. In partnership with Star Wars, Renault is unleashing the force with the new 2018 Renault Zoe Star Wars Limited Edition electric vehicle.
Just like Anakin Skywalker and Ben Solo becoming Darth Vader and Kylo Ren, respectively, the best-selling EV in Europe has transformed into the Renault Zoe Star Wars special edition. Interestingly, the Zoe Star Wars isn't the first vehicle from the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance to use the force. Just last year, Nissan’s mid-size crossover merged into the world of the Jedi by becoming the Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars limited edition. That marked the first time that a carmaker officially partnered with the Star Wars franchise. The partnership now continues, but with Nissan’s alliance partner Renault.
To enter the world of the Jedi, the Renault Zoe Star Wars features an exterior covered with a number of decals related to the franchise. For instance, the bonnet, roof and boot of the Renault Zoe Star Wars sport decals starring Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon star ship. Specific Star Wars badging can be found on the front fenders just below the A-pillar, as well as on the door sills.
Renault is making the Zoe Star Wars limited edition available in four body finishes: Etoile Black, Glacier White, Pearlescent White and Titanium Grey.
Inside the Renault Zoe Star Wars special edition, a number of parts are covered in purple hue like the dashboard trim strip, speakers, air vent surrounds as well as the base of gearshift and borders or the carpet.
The Renault Zoe Star Wars limited edition is derived from the Intens trim level of the EV. It builds on the equipment and feature list that comes standard with the Zoe Intens and is further enhanced by the addition of Bose audio, in-car Wi-Fi, 17-inch Techrun wheels and a reversing camera.
Renault is set to unleash the force that is the Zoe Star Wars in time with the theatrical release of the Stars Wars VIII, also known as the Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The limited edition will be unveiled and displayed at the L’Atelier Renault on the Champs-Elysées in Paris, France.
Renault will formally accept orders for the Zoe Star Wars special edition starting March 2018, although the French carmaker is already taking pre-reservations. Star Wars fans need to act fast, as only 1,000 examples will be available.
