Renault is expanding its Pro+ range with the addition of a small car-derived van. The new Zoe Van will go on sale in August and promises a 245-mile range and a payload of 387kg.
Power comes from an 80kW R110 electric motor – the same as used in the Zoe passenger car – with a 52kWh battery pack.
It features a new B-mode for increased regenerative braking, while the fast charging on a 50kW rapid DC charger will be an option that enables an 80% charge in an hour, with a 30-minute charge said to be enough for 90 additional miles.
Removing the rear seats and installing a completely flat floor allows a maximum load volume of 1cu m with a 1,205mm length and a maximum width of 1,110mm. Both rear doors remain functional allowing easy side access to the load, and have an opaque film applied to the windows to meet the regulations required to register the Zoe as a van as well as to improve security. A full-length load cover has been added and the rear parcel shelf also remains, but is removable.
The Zoe Van will come in two trim levels, Business and Business+ both of which get a 7-inch touchscreen fitted as standard with a 10-inch TFT instrument panel ahead of the driver to display the instrument panel. The higher trim level of the small van also gets keyless entry, cruise control, lane departure warning, parking assist and a wireless phone charging compartment in the centre console as part of the package. There's also the option to upgrade the touchscreen to a 9.3-inch version.
In the rear the loadspace gets a full mesh bulkhead as well as four load-lashing points and a protective rubber floor. The rear parcel shelf also remains for added security.
A five-year and 100,000-mile warranty covers the vehicle, while a separate eight-year warranty for 100,000 miles covers the batteries.
Prices start from £19,380 excluding VAT but including the Plug-in Van Grant of £6,120 with first deliveries scheduled for November.
