It's official. Renault has announced that its electric ZOE will get increased range as it moves into the new model year. The range bump comes courtesy of several revisions to the ZOE electric car, which we reported on 3 months ago.

According to Renault, the revised ZOE gets a 30-kilometer bump in range, making ZOE "best-in-class" in terms of electric range.

Total range for the heavily revised ZOE now stands at 240 km (149 miles) NEDC, up from the previous rating of 210 km (130 miles) NEDC.  In terms of "real world"/EPA-estimated range, this new number equates to about 90-95 miles.

The upgraded ZOE will launch in countries across Europer later this year.
