New Renault Zoe Venture Edition unveiled

The Renault Zoe Venture Edition features electric supermini's most popular optional extras, rolled into one easy-to-spec trim-level

Renault Zoe

Renault has launched the new Zoe Venture Edition. It’s a fresh, mid-range trim level for the French brand’s pure-electric hatchback, which will be available to order from January. Prices will start from £28,495 including the Government’s £3,000 plug-in car grant.

The Venture Edition is based on the entry-level Zoe Play, but comes with the hatchback’s most commonly specced optional extras. It shares the same LED headlamps, 15-inch steel wheels and 10-inch digital gauge cluster with the base-model – but adds climate control, electric windows and a seven-inch infotainment system with sat-nav.

Buyers also get a generous suite of driver assistance technology, such as lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, high-beam assist, rear parking sensors and an autonomous emergency braking system. Finally, the Zoe’s door mirrors are finished in the same colour as the EV’s bodywork.

Renault also offers a few optional extras for the Venture Edition, such as a Winter Pack, which adds heated seats and a heated steering wheel. Support for 50kW DC fast-charging is also available, which allows the Zoe to recover 90 miles of range in just 30 minutes when plugged into a compatible charging station.

The Venture Edition is powered by a 52kWh battery pack and Renault’s entry-level R110 electric motor, which has an output of 107bhp and 225Nm of torque. The battery pack offers a maximum claimed range of 245 miles, while the motor provides enough grunt for a 0–62mph time of 11.9 seconds and a top speed of 84mph.
