Passenger & boot space

How it copes with people and clutter

Converting the Renault Zoe into a van hasn’t required any particularly sophisticated engineering. The rear seats have been removed and a part-mesh, part-solid bulkhead has been installed to separate the occupants from the loadspace.

The rear windows are covered over with a plastic film to comply with legislation that requires them to be made unusable, while a flat floor has been created to get the loadspace nearly level with the boot lip. The plastic film windows, plus a regular rear windscreen, won’t keep prying eyes from scrutinising the contents of your loadspace, so a covered section towards the front keeps your bits out of sight, while the parcel shelf covers the rear. It’s not the greatest conversion job you’ll find and compared to the excellent cabin it does feel a little bodged together.

Nevertheless, if you need a very modest amount of space – just 0.51m3 – and don’t intend to transport anything heavy, the Zoe Van could meet your needs. Payload for Business trim models is just 387kg, while the additional equipment of the Business+ lowers that figure to 368kg.

The maximum loadspace length is 1205mm, maximum width across the load area is 950mm and the Zoe Van has a load area height of 410mm.
