Renault Zoe 2013 – Renault Electric
Renault ZOE 2013 is the solution to the zero emission mobility for all vehicle and being a first class choice for everyday use for only € 15,700 price. Renault ZOE is the first pure electric car packed with the latest technology and offer the world premieres of no less than six geared to enhance user-friendliness, range and connectivity. ZOE is a compact hatchback with a sleek, fluid lines. Agile, dynamic view expressed driving pleasure, while the signature feature LED lights that are permanently located either side of the light recesses of the front air intake. Such as the Twingo and Twizy, ZOE has the Renault brand new design identity. A diesel-engine city car, more than 60 patents have been filed for ZOE’s design. Range, interactivity and occupant well-being is the core of the innovation of the vehicle.
Renault has developed a ‘Range Optimizer’, which incorporates three major innovations (the new generation of regenerative braking, heat pumps and Michelin tires EnergyTM EV). Because of this, Renault Zoe 2013 is the highest range of electric vehicles in mass production. In the NEDC cycle, ZOE is homologated with a variety of 210km. In real terms, for example, the use of the suburbs, the owner will generally reach about 100 km in cold climates and 150 km in a state of being. The kinetic energy produced under deceleration and braking is recovered by the motor so it can be converted into electricity to charge the battery. This feature is also fitted to the Fluence ZE and Kangoo ZE. When the driver depresses the brake pedal, the system intelligently distributes the braking effort between the application of the brake pads and brake electric motors in order to maximize the use of brake electric motors and battery charging.
The Michelin tires are Energy TM EV Michelin innovation developed together with Renault as a world premiere for Renault ZOE 2013. These tires have improved energy efficiency to maximize vehicle range. Rubber compounds, tread designs and sidewall has been engineered to withstand high torque and overcome ZOE specific demands of electric vehicles, but still provide the same security and handling performance for all other Michelin tires. Available in 15 and 16-inch, the tire is fitted to all models of ZOE as original equipment. Renault ZOE is the only electric vehicle charger for Cameleon features. Patented by Renault, the charger is compatible with all power levels up to 43kW. Charging the battery at a charging station can take between 30 minutes and nine hours.
Driving the Renault ZOE is a unique experience that gives new meaning to “driving pleasure” term. Synchronous electric motor with rotor coil has a power output of 65kW and maximum torque of 220nm directly provide. Acceleration and pull-away from the responsive low speed. Driving is more relaxing to travel thanks to quiet and smooth, shift-free acceleration.
For stress-free driving the driver can choose between three different sounds “voice ZE”, an alarm, while it is possible to turn off the warning system by simply pressing a button. “ZE voice” can be heard from 1 to 30kph and was the subject of a special design work to create a bespoke sound identity for Renault ZOE 2013.
