Renault Zoe Arrives In Norway - Batteries Included!

Renault Zoe Arrives In Norway - Batteries Included!

Thanks to heavy incentives on the first 50,000 EVs purchased, Norway is the hottest market in the world for fully electric vehicles - and Renault has decided that the Zoe needs to take a piece of that pie as well before it's gone.  (Probably a good move consider the brand's lackluster results recently in Europe)

And as a quirk of that system, the Zoe has been priced inclusive of the battery (a purchasing option that many customers in other European countries would love to have), from 191,980 kr on the "Life Easy" charge package (€21,500 Euros or $29,800 USD).  This price also includes a wallbox EVSE and charging up to 3.6 kW

The Renault Zoe also comes in two other trim packages:

  • Intense Easy Charge - 211,980kr (€23,800 Euros, $32,800 USD) - 16" wheels, leather, rear view camera
  • Intense "Supercharge" - 221,980kr (€24,900 Euros, $34,300 USD)
Renault says the "Supercharge" trim level comes with a wallbox and the ability to charge your Zoe at 11kW - or 80% in about 2 hours.

Despite a 210 km (130 mile) rating by the NEDC, Renault does prominently note that the Zoe has an "actual range of 100 to 150 km" (62 to 93 miles) depending on usage and weather conditions.
