Renault UK welcomes the free chargers with open arms, as the automaker believes this move will boost sales of the Zoe.

There have been additional announcements detailing the install of public chargers throughout the UK that Renault thinks will boost sales of its electric vehicles, too.

But it's the free home chargers that matter most.

Renault says that almost 90% of charging will be done at home, but the growing public infrastructure will provide peace of mind.

Renault UK’s Ben Fletcher, Electric Vehicle Product Manager, stated:

"The two most common preconceptions of electric vehicles are an expensive purchase price and lack of public opportunity to charge.  ZOE’s pricing puts the first point to rest, and this latest announcement, on top of the established highly developed network of public charging points, answers the second and allows customers to buy EV with complete confidence."
