Renault ZOE van launched with 245-mile range

New electric Renault ZOE van joins maker’s zero emissions commercial vehicle range

The recently launched Renault ZOE electric supermini is now available as a van, with blanked-out rear windows and no rear seats. It uses the same 52kWh battery pack and R110 electric motor as the car, allowing up to 245 miles on a charge.

Thanks to its lack of rear seats, the Renault ZOE van benefits from a completely flat load bay. Renault has also fitted a mesh bulkhead and blanked the rear windows for “added security”. Maximum payload for the electric van stands at up to 387kg; the load bay is 1,205mm long and 1,110mm wide, with a usable volume of one metre cubed. The rear doors open for extra versatility, while every version comes with a rubber floor with four anchorage points.

The ZOE van can be recharged via a 50kW DC fast charger from 0-80% in one hour and 10 minutes. All models come with a Type 2 charging cable, allowing a 100% recharge in nine hours 25 minutes from a 7kW wallbox.

Available in two trim levels, the ZOE Van is available with much of the same equipment – including the 100% recycled seat fabric – as the conventional ZOE supermini. Business models get a digital instrument cluster, a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system, air conditioning, and keyless entry, plus automatic LED lights and cruise control. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included.

Business+ adds alloy wheels, sat-nav, wireless phone charging, a reversing camera and that sustainable seat fabric. It also brings a host of safety features, including lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition and automatic high beam. Customers can also spec a Technology Pack with a larger touchscreen, or a Winter Pack featuring a heated steering wheel and heated seats.

Prices start from £19,380 plus VAT (including the plug-in van grant) for a basic Business model, or £20,330 plus VAT for the more lavishly equipped Business+ variant. All models come with a five-year/100,000-mile warranty, while the battery is covered for up to eight years. The Renault ZOE van is available to order now.
