History of Renault
Renault is one of the most popular car manufacturers in Europe, they are also one of the oldest around. Originally, the French manufacturer was founded in October 1898 by Louis Renault and his brothers. Obviously electric cars are a new technology of today’s world, but even back in the 1800’s, Renault were consistently rolling out the best vehicles for their customers.
It wasn’t only cars that Renault produced. They also played a part in the production of buses, commercial trucks and cargo vehicles that were used a lot in the pre-war years.
Something that is present in all of the designs by Renault is quality. This is something that the company strives to also commit to. All vehicles are made to meet quality and durability requirements, ensuring that the customer is always completely satisfied with their vehicle.
In today’s transport world, Renault has had a huge amount of successes. The first electric vehicle was produced in 2013, the Renault ZOE. Despite electric vehicles being a new innovative idea for the majority of the world, the Renault ZOE was clearly seen as impressive, when it was announced as Europe’s best selling all-electric car in both 2015 and 2016. Not only that, 2019 and 2020 have been excellent years for the award-winning car. The Renault ZOE has also been awarded the following achievements:
- What Car? Car of the Year Award 2019 & 2020 – Electric car less than £30,000 & Small electric car
- Driving electric – Car of the Year 2020
- Top Gear – City Car of the Year 2019

Why should you buy a Renault ZOE?
Electric vehicles are made in all shapes, sizes and can vary in pricing. It will primarily depend on what sort of car you’re looking to buy, whether you want an SUV, hatchback, or a coupe, there will be something out there for you. If you’re looking for a hatchback, the Renault ZOE could be a perfect match for you, and here’s why…
When you buy any vehicle from EV Sales the batteries will come with the vehicle. There is the option to lease the batteries from certain companies, but our vehicles were bought with the batteries, so it’s one less thing for you to worry about. Batteries are predicted to last between at least 10 – 20 years, depending on how the driver uses it. Our vehicles are no more than 5 years old, and the batteries still have plenty of life in them!
As there are multiple models available, the range will differ slightly. The 2017 model Renault ZOE that we have for sale is a standard Renault ZOE Dynamique E. It averages around 160 miles on a full charge, depending on the driving conditions, and how it is driven. If you’re making small journeys, you’re highly unlikely to exceed this on a daily basis.
To increase the range by up to 10% the car is fitted as standard with eco mode and regenerative braking. This will stop drivers using the range of the car up too quickly.
Upon first impressions, the Renault ZOE does appear to be quite a compact and space limiting vehicle. However, the interior is extremely deceiving and is in fact spacious enough for 5 people to enjoy a journey comfortably.
Many people already have an idea of how an electric vehicle will look. Futuristic and very different to normal internal combustion engine vehicles is what normally comes to mind. Although the Renault ZOE is the complete opposite. When you drive a ZOE, you’ll be driving a conventional automatic vehicle that is actually very similar in many ways to standard cars.
The Renault ZOE was never manufactured to go up against the likes of Tesla, and cars with ranges exceeding 200-250. It is ideal for parents doing the school run, and for businesses such as estate agents that will only drive short distances within local areas.
When you buy a Renault ZOE you’ll be getting great value for money, a vehicle that is economically cheap to run and better still emits zero emissions!
