New Renault Zoe Riviera Limited Edition launched

Special edition pure-electric Renault Zoe Riviera hatchback limited to just 300 units on sale in the UK

Renault has launched a new special-edition version of its Zoe EV. It’s called the Zoe Riviera Limited Edition and, as the latter part of its name suggests, production will be capped at just 300 examples for the UK.

Renault has also been savvy with the car’s spec sheet as, even though the Riviera is based on the range-topping Zoe GT Line model, it still qualifies for the government’s £2,500 plug-in car grant. 

It slips under the £35,000 threshold with a starting price of £34,795 before any deductions. After the government grant has been applied, that works out at £32,295.

Cosmetic upgrades for the Zoe Riviera Limited Edition include 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, painted white body stripes and midnight blue metallic paint.

Standard equipment includes LED headlights, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera and a hands-free parking aid. There’s also a host of safety equipment, such as lane-keep assist, automatic emergency braking, a speed limiter and cruise control.

Inside, buyers benefit from automatic air-conditioning, a 10-inch digital dash display and a 9.3-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The car’s seats are also trimmed in a blend of synthetic leather and recycled cloth.

The Riviera’s powertrain is identical to the standard Zoe’s, comprising a 133bhp electric motor and a 52kWh battery pack. Top speed stands at 87mph and, on a full charge, Renault says the hatchback will travel up to 238 miles.

Charge times are reasonable, too. When connected to a 7kW wallbox, the battery can take on a full charge in nine hours and 25 minutes. Hook the car up to a 50kW DC rapid charger and the battery can take on an 80 perc ent charge in an hour and 10 minutes.

The Renault Zoe recently claimed our award for the best affordable electric car of the year. Click here to read all about it…
