Why purchase a Renault electric vehicle?

Renault electric range

A Zero Emissions car

Reduce local air pollution and save money with a Renault Electric Vehicle.


In addition to producing zero emissions whilst driving, your Renault electric vehicle also reduces noise pollution, making our cities a much more pleasant environment to live and work in.


Renault Z.E. vehicles also benefit from an 8-year battery warranty and 5-year vehicle warranty, giving drivers peace of mind.

A couple of perks

  • Government Grant available (£3,000 for cars & £8,000 vans)
  • 0% Benefit-in-Kind for company car drivers
  • Exemption from ULEZ charges e.g. London congestion charge

What advantages does an electric vehicle offer in terms of maintenance?

Reduced maintenance costs

As an electric car has hundreds of fewer mechanical parts, servicing an electric vehicle is more simple and affordable compared to a fuel-powered one.


No oil changes, new clutches or spark plugs are required, and drivers also benefit from less frequent brake pad changes due to the regenerative braking taking the strain off the wheel brakes.

All figures are based on Renault estimates only using average fuel and energy costs as at 09/2020. WLTP figures for comparison purposes only. Real-world driving results and running costs may vary depending on various factors, such as driver styles, weather and accessories added to the vehicle after registration. Figures assume that the vehicle exercise duty rates will remain the same in the next 3 years, although these may be subject to change by the Government. This information is provided for illustrative purposes only, and Renault cannot guarantee that each driver will achieve the listed running costs.​

*Total energy cost for the petrol vehicle (Renault Clio TCE Automatic Iconic) is based on an average petrol cost of £1.13 a litre (as of [09/20], figures obtained from https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/oil-and-petroleum-products-weekly-statistics) with a combined WLTP fuel consumption of 48.7 mpg. The total energy cost for the ZOE is based on an average electricity cost of 14.3 pence per KW (as at 09/2020, figure obtained from https://www.ukpower.co.uk/. ​

**Average servicing, tyres and brakes costs are provided by CAP on a 3 years/10,000 annual mileage basis. ​

***Total running cost combines the energy and fuel costs over 3 years and 30,000 miles, with the Vehicle Exercise Duty due over that period, along with the average servicing, tyres and brake costs in that period.

Your questions about Renault Z.E. contracts

NEDC and WLTP? What is the certified driving range?

driving range certification

A series of mandatory tests

These certification protocols are performed in laboratory settings based on standardised driving cycles (duration, speed, equipment, temperature, etc.) to measure the consumption and driving range of electric vehicles. 

Prior to September 2017, the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC) protocol was in effect. It has since been replaced by the WLTP protocol.

WLTP is more representative than NEDC. Its results are much closer to what you experience during your everyday journeys. It takes into consideration the type of vehicle, equipment and selected options. 

In practical terms, driving range and consumption measured under the WLTP protocol more closely reflect actual usage compared to those measured with NEDC, and without any impact on the vehicle’s performance and consumption!
