Renault PRO+ has revealed the newest addition to its growing LCV range – the All-New ZOE Van. Based on the award-winning and successful New ZOE passenger car, the latest addition to Renault’s expanding Z.E. PRO+ range offers more choice than ever for commercial vehicle buyers looking to switch to an electric van.
With the same generous 395km WLTP range as the ZOE car, the new zero-emissions LCV delivers versatility and reassurance to commercial buyers keen to experience the benefits of running an electric commercial vehicle. That’s thanks to the All-ZOE Van utilising the powerful 52kWh battery and 80kW R110 motor the New ZOE boasts.
The All-New ZOE Van joins Renault’s expanding range of electric commercial vehicles – alongside the Kangoo Z.E. and Master Z.E. – in a range that now spans a wide variety of offerings in terms of size, driving range, load space and carrying capacity.
Based on the ZOE car, the All-New ZOE Van benefits from the same level of advanced features in terms of its battery technology and powertrain, as well as its generously equipped high-quality interior, complemented by Renault’s latest infotainment and safety technologies.
There’s a choice of Business and Business+ trim levels in line with other Renault PRO+ commercial vehicles, offering an impressive level of desirable equipment, including a rapid charging option for both models for added convenience.
All-New Renault ZOE Van powertrain, range and charging
The All-New ZOE Van benefits from the same advanced powertrain featured in the regular ZOE car, meaning a powerful 52kWh battery and 80kW R110 electric motor resulting in a WLTP range of up to 245 miles on a single charge on Business models.
The R110 motor delivers acceleration of zero to 62mph in 11.4 seconds, while the zero to 31mph sprint is completed in just 3.9 seconds – making the All-New ZOE Van ideal for urban journeys with stop-start traffic, and a perfect fit for tasks such as multidrop deliveries, for example. All of which are completed with zero tailpipe emissions.
Recharging is simple and time-efficient thanks to the option of 50kW DC charging on both trim levels, allowing All-New ZOE Van drivers to charge from zero to 80 per cent in just one hour and ten minutes. If time is tight, a 30-minute charge is enough for a 135km boost in range via the DC charger.
The charging inlet is accessed behind the Renault badge on the front of the vehicle, with Renault’s advanced on-board and patented Chameleon charger adapting to the power source for the most time and energy-efficient charge for the vehicle. It also gives drivers the flexibility to use a range of chargers available publicly. As standard, the All-New ZOE Van comes with type-2 charging cable, this allows 100 per cent charge in just three hours using a 22kW public or workplace charger.
Two generous trim level choices
Replicating other vehicles in the Renault PRO+ line-up, the All-New ZOE Van is available in a choice of two generously equipped models – the Business and Business+. Both specifications offer customers a comprehensive level of standard equipment, with the opportunity to build on this with key options available at extra cost – including DC charging for faster charging.
As standard, Business trim brings a wealth of features, including:
- 10-inch TFT instrument cluster
- 7-inch Easy Link infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity
- Manual air conditioning
- Electric front windows
- Renault keycard with handsfree entry
- Electrically adjustable heated door mirrors
- Automatic headlamps and wipers
- Full LED headlamps with C-shape daytime running light
- 15-inch steel wheels with Michelin EV Energy Tyres
- USB socket
- Driver and passenger airbags
- Isofix points on passenger seat
- Front fog lights
- Cruise control with speed limiter
- E. Voice (low speed pedestrian warning)
Moving up to Business+ trim enhances the ZOE’s technology and comfort features even further. Included on all Business+ models are:
- Satellite navigation
- Rear parking sensors
- 100 per cent recycled seat upholstery
- Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)
- Automatic High Low Beam
- Traffic Sign Recognition
- Automatic Climate Control
- Driver’s one-touch electric window
- Electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, electrically folding, finished in body colour
- 16-inch alloy wheels with Michelin EV Energy Tyres
A carefully selected range of options are available to All-New ZOE Van buyers. On top of the same range of eight attractive exterior colour choices for New ZOE, the specification of Business+ models can be expanded with the Technology Pack.
This incorporates Renault’s 9.3-inch portrait-oriented Easy Link touchscreen infotainment system, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera, boosting the ZOE Van’s ease of use even further, particularly in urban environments. Additionally, the Winter Pack is available, enhancing comfort in colder conditions with heated seats and a heated steering wheel.
Infotainment and connectivity
The All-New ZOE Van features Renault’s latest infotainment technology, giving buyers a choice of screen sizes, both packed with useful and high-tech features that make life easier on the move, but also more convenient and comfortable for the driver with greater connectivity options than ever and an intuitive interface.
All models feature a 10-inch TFT instrument cluster delivering a selection of information via a crisp and intuitive screen ahead of the driver, enabling full customisation of what’s being displayed based on personal preference. In the centre of the cabin is the 7-inch Easy Link touchscreen display controlling all infotainment and car settings.
For ZOE Business+ customers, the 7-inch Easy Link system also features sat-nav functionality alongside the standard-fit Apple CarPlay and Android Auto found on all New ZOE Van models. Bluetooth connectivity and USB connections are standard on all models.
Alternatively, Business+ specification can be enhanced by the 9.3-inch Easy Link infotainment system. Featuring a portrait touchscreen, the technology available moves to the next level with a vibrant display that’s fully configurable based on the driver’s preferences, perfectly complementing the 10-inch TFT instrument cluster.
The sat-nav features 3D mapping functionality, while always-on 4G connectivity enables connected services from TomTom such as traffic information and weather updates. The map can also be displayed on the 10-inch TFT instrument cluster for maximum convenience, keeping the route in view while the main central screen can be used for other features. For fleet customers, a Telematic Control Unit (TCU) is available for fleet asset management, optionally available on both Business and Business+ trims.
Versatile load space
The All-New ZOE Van’s generous and practical load area has been created by removing the rear seats of the existing ZOE passenger car. A completely flat load floor ensures the load area is as usable as possible, while the rear doors bring an extra dimension of versatility, enabling access via the side of the vehicle. For added security, the rear windows are disabled and covered in an opaque film.
A total load volume of one cubic metre is on offer in the All-New ZOE Van, thanks to 1,205mm of length in the load bay and maximum load width of 1,110mm. The ability to make use of the side doors for ease of access boosts flexibility for awkwardly shaped or smaller items. Maximum payload is rated at up to 387kg (Business) meaning small but bulky items can be carried in the load area of the ZOE Van with ease.
Generous warranty and servicing options
As it’s based on the ZOE car, the All-New ZOE Van benefits from the same assurances that New ZOE customers enjoy. That means it boasts a five-year, 200,000km warranty that gives customers greater peace of mind, mirroring the rest of Renault’s car range. In addition, Renault’s confidence in its EV technology is clear, as the Z.E. 50 battery receives an eight-year, 160,000km warranty. Service intervals for the ZOE Van are every 12 months or 30,000km, whichever comes sooner.
We expect pricing to be confirmed in August 2020, prior to the van going on sale in Q4 of 2020.
