New Renault ZOE from £145 per month fuel included

We had the latest PCP prices for the Renault ZOE confirmed today and they are looking very good. Renault recently rejigged its prices significantly, effectively reducing the monthly cost of the car while at the same time increasing the cost of the battery rental.

The end result is a substantial reduction in cost overall, particularly for low mileage drivers. Also, the PCP term was previously either 36 or 48 months, but now the term can be 24 months, and this is now the term with the lowest prices. This makes it seem like a particularly attractive and low risk deal.

Our prices are now as follows for a Renault ZOE Dynamique Intens on 2 year PCP:

  • 750 miles per quarter: £75 deposit plus £145 per month, Fuel included*
  • 7500 miles per year: £75 deposit plus £180 per month, Fuel included*

For clarity the monthly figure includes the battery rental (which is actually £45pm and £75pm respectively). Renault will also pay for the installation of a home fast charge point (7kW/30A).

A home 13Amp charge cable isn’t included, though it isn’t required if the charge point is used – it can, however, be taken as an option for £22 per month. Metallic paint is also available and, again, adds about £22 per month.

For comparison, consider the current deal for the Clio Dynamique S Nav TCE 90 for which the deposit is a massive £3571 and the monthly payment is £169. At 60mpg, if you could get it fuel included it would cost an additional £55 per month in fuel for 7000 miles per year. Therefore in total over 24 months it would cost £373 per month compared to the ZOE’s £183.

You could therefore run two ZOE’s for the price of a Clio, and still have some change left over. And being electric the ZOE is much nicer to drive, and can be run from a renewable energy supply.

It’s worth noting that you get a lot of car for your money. The ZOE Intens is a very high specification including satnav with traffic control, bluetooth, MP3, auto-lights, auto-wipers, electric mirrors and windows, reversing camera, cruise control, speed limiter, traction control, keyless entry, alloy wheels, satnav with traffic control, bluetooth, MP3, auto-lights, auto-wipers, electric mirrors and windows, reversing camera, cruise control, speed limiter, traction control, keyless entry, alloy wheels, air conditioning, etc. And being electric you can monitor the battery charge and remaining range, and control the heating or air conditioning, from your smartphone.etc. And being electric you can monitor the battery charge and remaining range, and control the heating or air conditioning, from your smartphone.

*Fuel Included

The following are included on a fuel included deal:

  1. Fuel (electricity) for the given mileage
  2. Registration and access cards for the biggest charging networks: Ecotricity and Chargemaster/Polar
  3. Registration for London congestion charge exemption
  4. Out of hours telephone and email support for the first 6 months
  5. Office hours telephone and email support for the duration of the contract

It’s the ultimate in predictable, fixed-cost motoring.

    This sounds like the deal I managed to get mine on. I was delighted to get a 2 year deal as I know tech will have moved on and I can either have a referesh or a complete change of mind at the 2 year point.

    The range is the only issue for me. If it was double what it currently is then it would be perfect for nearly all situations. I do wonder why Renault couldn’t come up with a double range version by using some of the boot space for example? I know long term battery technology will improve, so I guess we wait.

    The batteries currently weight nearly 300 kg according to brochure so a double range one with the same payload as the current one would be around 2.2 tonnes gross vehicle weight & in the region of 1700 kg empty.

    I still have three and a bit years left to go on my PCP deal, but once its over I will be gladly looking at the Fuel included offers, especially as you are nice and local 🙂

    Double range doesn’t necessarily mean double weight. It’s all about the changes in chemistry that means they are squeezing more capacity of of the same size.

    Indeed Sandy, I think we are in for some good surprises with battery development in the next two or three years

    Seems so, Take a look at the 2nd paragraph under the battery image, Honda are on it.

    Every year for the past 10 there seems to be some “hot new battery tech” that will “change the world”, yet none of it ever seems to materialise. I’m going to be really sceptical about any of this research until it’s actually out on the road in a consumers hands 🙁
