The all-time top-selling Electric Vehicle in the French Market and the top-selling Electric Vehicle for Europe in 2015. Unveiled as a production vehicle in 2012 the Renault Zoe hit the French market in December 2012. Classified as a 5-door supermini and longer than the Renault Clio. The battery is leased separate and excluded from the sales price of the Renault Zoe. Renault introduced a lighter, smaller engine but with the same power and torque as the Q210 in 2015 called the R240. Unfortunately, the new engine does not allow quick charging. The Zoe is available for both engine types. Sales breached the 50,000 global level in April 2016. The Renault ZOE is not available in the USA.
In 2017 Renault brought an upgrade to market, the Zoe Z.E.40 with a 41kWh battery and available with two motors, the Q90, and R90. The R90 is also available in a smaller (previous model range) 22kWh battery option.
