Renault Zoe Hatchback (2019 - )

We think the Renault Zoe is one of the best electric cars you can buy, and not just because it’s one of the cheapest. It’s also impressively practical for its size and nicely finished inside, while on the road it combines comfort, quietness and fun in a well-rounded dynamic package. All that, and zero tailpipe emissions. Who needs a Tesla?

Our expert review

See what our expert review team say about this car

The Zoe is one of the cheapest electric cars around, so that’s a great start. Better still, residual values for the previous Zoe are among the best of any used car. If the latest model continues the trend, it will make it a sound long-term investment.

With fewer moving parts, servicing and maintenance costs should be lower than for a petrol- or diesel-powered supermini. The cost of recharging the Zoe should also work out at far cheaper than filling it with petrol or diesel. A full top-up takes 9 hours and 25 minutes on the fully-installed 7kW wallbox charger that comes free with the car, and will cost you between £3 and £7 per charge, depending on the tariff and the time of day.

The official WLTP figures suggest that should give you a range of up to 245 miles, but in the real world your maximum range will depend on a variety of factors including how fast you drive and what the ambient temperature is. Be aware, too, that if you want to upgrade your standard 22kWh charger to a 50kW charger that gives you up to 90 miles worth of range in just half an hour (provided you can find an appropriate charging station, that is), it’ll cost you several hundred pounds more. It can’t be retro-fitted, either.
