Review

The Renault Zoe is great value, fairly practical and has a long range between charges. Limited modern safety kit and a flawed driving position make the Peugeot e-208 a better buy, though – assuming you can live with a slightly shorter range.

Trim: Iconic

Iconic trim is available with either the R110 or the more powerful R135 motor. As well as adding a built-in sat nav, there’s also wireless smartphone charging, climate control and rear parking sensors. You also get 100% recycled seat upholstery and fabric inserts on the dashboard. Safety systems include lane keeping assistance and traffic sign recognition although, disappointingly, you don't get automatic emergency braking.

Engine: 100KW i

The more powerful of two electric motors is worth the relatively small premium (over the R110). Acceleration is noticeably stronger above 40mph, making the Zoe more accomplished on fast A-roads and motorways.
