Award-winning all electric Renault ZOE leads the charge for Mitchells in Lowestoft
Mitchells Renault in Lowestoft is entering a new phase in its history as the all-electric ZOE arrives in the showroom this week.
Though the futuristic Twizy has been available from the dealership since last year, the ZOE is a mainstream supermini with space for five and offers a range of 100 miles.
The ZOE is available in three trim levels: Expression, Dynamique Zen, and Dynamique Intens, with a current starting price of only £13,995 on-the-road after UK Government Plug-in Car Grant deduction. Battery hire costs from £70 per month.
The price includes the installation of a wall box, worth £500, at the customer’s house to charge the ZOE.
ZOE has won the hearts of the motoring press and just this week scooped the Technology Award as voted for by Fleet World magazine for seamlessly “taking electric motoring to the mainstream”.
Matthew Huke-Jenner, dealer principal at Mitchells Renault in Lowestoft, is also a fan of the ZOE. He said: “The future is here!
“We’ve had a phenomenal amount of interest in the ZOE and many of our regular customers have popped in to see if could realistically be part of their lives. The answer is a resounding yes! The ZOE really is a beautiful and comfortable car that is driveable and practical.
“We predict it will be a huge hit with local drivers who want to reduce their motoring costs and reduce their carbon footprint, thanks to its refinement and advanced technology and all at an affordable price.
“As electric cars have fewer moving parts that a diesel or petrol car, they need less maintenance meaning that there are huge savings on servicing to be made.
“We thoroughly recommend a test drive and we’re on hand for any questions about life with an electric vehicle.”
