Renault Zoe specifications revealed

The Renault Zoe's specifications have been confirmed, with the all-electric supermini to be offered in three trims.

The Zoe will come in Expression, Dynamique Zen and Dynamique Intens versions, with the entry-level car starting at 13,650 after the Government's electric car grant.

Expression trim comes with a decent level of equipment, including climate and cruise controls, remote heating control, Bluetooth, USB connectivity, LED daylight running lights, a battery monitor and 15-inch wheels.

Dynamique Zen and Dynamique Intens both cost 14,750 (including the Government grant) and add automatic lights and wipers, four electric windows, keyless entry and start, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and 16-inch wheels.

The Dynamique Intens also adds a rear parking camera, while the Dynamique Zen comes with a Teflon-covered interior and a fragrance diffuser, which releases 'stimulating' or 'relaxing' scents.

Alloy wheels, remote battery charging, sat-nav and metallic paint are all available as options.

Renault is raising the prices of several of its models on April 5 and the Zoe is set to go up to 13,995 for Expression trim and 15,195 for the two Dynamique models.

On top of the purchase price, Zoe owners will have to lease the battery from Renault, which will cost from 70 a month. However, Zoe buyers will get a free wall-mounted charger installed at their home.

The Zoe is available to order now, with deliveries starting on June 7.
