Review

The Renault Zoe is great value, fairly practical and has a long range between charges. Its flawed driving position and less comfortable ride make the Peugeot e-208 a better buy, though – assuming you can live with the e-208's slightly shorter range.

get the best price

Iconic trim is available with either the R110 or the more powerful R135 motor (the latter is up to the job and cheaper to buy). As well as adding a built-in sat nav over entry-level Play trim, Iconic trim also brings 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, automatic emergency braking is an option, and well worth adding.

This is the less powerful of two electric motor options. Around town, acceleration is perfectly nippy, but the more powerful R135 will get you up to motorway speeds quite a bit quicker.
