The Zoe R110 base variant is priced at RM165,000 on the road without insurance, while the higher-spec Zoe R135 comes at RM179,000.
The first shipment of the new Zoe has been fully taken up and customers who place their bookings to purchase or subscribe for the next shipment can expect to receive their vehicles in June or July.
Those interested in subscribing to the Zoe can opt for a Fixed Plan via the Renault Subscription platform.
Three plans are available - one-year, two-year and three-year - with rates starting from RM2,799 per month for the Zoe R110 and RM2,999 per month for the Zoe R135.
The approval process for a Renault Subscription typically takes three working days, providing all requirements and documentation are fulfilled.
TCEC CEO Wong Hoe Mun said subscription is a great way for motorists to experience the EV lifestyle with the new Zoe without having to make a purchase.
“Not only is it more affordable and accessible, but customers also need not worry about a range of ownership-related concerns. These include the vehicle price, downpayment, loan tenure, interest rates, warranties, servicing and maintenance, insurance and depreciation,” said Wong.
Monthly fee is inclusive of insurance, regular servicing fees and a Type 2 AC cable.
The new Zoe features the next-generation Z.E. 50 battery in the same-sized pack as its predecessor but with a higher energy capacity of 52kWh.
This translates to more power in addition to an increase of over 20% in the WLTP-rated range – 395km for the Zoe R110 and 386km for the more powerful Zoe R135.
Both variants feature a single-speed gearbox driving the front wheels but with different motor configurations.
The Zoe R110 gets an 80kW motor that delivers 110PS and 225Nm of torque, enabling a 0-100kph sprint of 11.4 seconds, with a top speed of 135kph.
The Zoe R135 gets the latest 100kW motor that produces 135PS and 245Nm of torque to achieve 0 to 100kph dash of 9.5 seconds and a top speed of 140kph.
The new Zoe supports up to 50kW of DC fast charging with a CCS 2 connection, which enables a 10-80% state of charge in 70 minutes.
Meanwhile, AC charging via a Type 2 connector delivers a 0-100% charge in a class-leading three hours at 22kW.
An additional B mode enhances the new Zoe’s regenerative braking efficiency, converting as much kinetic energy into electricity as possible to help enhance driving range.
B mode also makes driving easier, especially in cities or any congested traffic where it intensifies deceleration as soon as the accelerator pedal is released, significantly reducing the need to use the brake pedal.
While the dimensions of the new Zoe remain the same (4,087mm long, 1,562mm tall, 1,945mm wide), substantial updates to its exterior styling result in a more assertive and distinct look.
At the front is a completely redesigned hood with a more sculpted appearance. The new contours converge towards the centre of the front face into the “holographic” Renault diamond, which houses the new charging hatch.
A new bumper widens the overall look of the new Zoe and incorporates chrome inserts in the grille, headlights and around the fog lights, enhancing the lower section.
Side vents are specifically designed to reduce aerodynamic drag for better handling and range efficiency.
In addition to the Pure Vision full-LED headlights with C-shaped daytime running lights (DRL), the fog lights, taillights with dynamic turn signals and even the turn signal reminders in the side mirrors are 100% LED on the new Zoe.
Both variants also feature new five-spoke 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels that are now equipped with front and rear disc brakes and tyres measuring 195/55.
The cabin has also been updated with a redesigned 10-inch digital driver’s instrument panel that is customisable to display main driving aids and all settings specific to electric driving such as the eco-meter.
The panel also displays GPS indications on the Zoe R135, which comes standard with offline navigation.
Meanwhile, Renault Easy Link infotainment system is accessed through a 9.3-inch touchscreen multimedia display with support for Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
It also features Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports, an auxiliary audio port and a six-speaker setup.
Both variants also come with electrically adjustable mirrors (with power folding on the Zoe R135), rear parking sensors, an electronic e-shifter, an automatic parking brake, full-LED interior lighting, automatic climate control and a new ergonomic control panel.
The Zoe R135 gets additional two rear-seat USB ports, an electrochromic rear-view mirror, a reverse camera and front parking sensors.
The new Zoe also showcases the innovative use of sustainable materials where the new fabric upholstery is 100% recycled using carded yarn, a first for the automotive industry.
The yarn is made from safety belt scrap and plastic waste (PET) materials. It is sourced and manufactured based on circular economy principles, which helps reduce related CO2 emissions by over 60%.
The Zoe R110 comes with the new recycled fabric upholstery in black, while the Zoe R135 gets black combination leather-fabric seats.
The same recycled fabric upholstery is also featured in a horizontal band across the centre of the dashboard.
The entire dashboard has also been revised, including the layout, the use of new, soft and supple high-quality material and the integration of different screens.
Renault has also fitted the new Zoe with an acoustic windshield, reducing the impact of noise from outside, which along with the electric motor provides for an even quieter and more enjoyable ride.
The centre console now allows for twice as much storage including two cup holders and a tray for wireless phone charging while boot space is unchanged at 338 litres.
Both variants come with four airbags (dual front and dual side units) and are equipped with lane departure warning (LDW), electronic stability control (ESC), anti-slip regulation (ASR), ABS, emergency brake assist (EBA) and hill start assist (HSA).
The Zoe R135 adds an adaptive high beam (AHB), blind spot warning and hands-free park assist.
The Zoe R110 is available in Black and Solid White, while the Zoe R135 comes with colour options of Black, Blue, Red and Purple.
Each new Renault Zoe comes with a 22kW Type 2 cable but without a portable charger.
For ease of charging, customers who purchase or subscribe also have the cost option of a basic installation of a VESTAL 7kW wall box charger for RM6,250 or a VESTEL 22kW wall box charger for RM6,950 at their home or office premises.
Costs are inclusive of 15 metres of cabling.
For more convenience, customers can purchase or subscribe to the new Zoe via the Renault E-Store, which digitally facilitates the entire process.
Both variants come with a three-year/100,000km warranty for the vehicle and electric powertrain.
The EV battery is covered for eight years/160,000km, with a minimum capacity of 70%.
The new Zoe is now on display at Renault showrooms located in Petaling Jaya, Selangor and along Jalan Raja Laut in Kuala Lumpur.
