The Renault Zoe has been around since 2013 and in that time has won several awards including the Best Small Electric Car at the What Car? awards for seven years in a row.
It’s a reliable and affordable electric car and a good option for those looking to get into the electric car market.
It has a driving range of 245 miles and a range of features which make it stand out from the crowd. These include emergency brake assist, if a driver doesn’t react quickly enough before a collision, electronic stability control, to help drivers to stay on course in accidents and rear impact absorbing seats and headrests to lower the risk of whiplash for those in the car.
Often described as a good all-rounder, along with being one of the most affordable electric cars around, it also comes with its own at-home charging unit.
You also have the option of paying more to use a rapid charging point, which can charge the car from 0 to 80% in just over an hour. This is compared to three hours at a standard charger, or nine hours if charging at home. To find out more about the car, see the Renault website.
The cost of car insurance is determined by lots of different things. These include the type of car you’re insuring, where you keep it and how you use it along with your driving history, job, and age.
All insurers put cars into groups, from 1 to 50, depending on how much they cost to insure. Cheaper cars, with smaller engines, are found in the low-down groups while those nearer to 50 are more expensive and have a higher risk of being stolen or involved in an accident.

The first generation Renault Zoe, launched in the UK in 2013, was a pioneering mass market electric car, rivalling the Nissan Leaf. Now the third generation Zoe finds itself in an increasingly crowded EV marketplace and despite its impressive claimed driving range of 239 miles it has fallen behind when it comes to the latest safety standards, failing to be awarded even a single star by Euro NCAP in 2021."
