With a starting price of 47.490 AUD (30.183 €), the Renault Zoe is now the cheapest mass market electric car available in Australia. It can be ordered in two trim levels: Life and Intens.
At the moment the Renault ZOE is available to order in just four Australian dealerships (Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth).
However, this is still a very expensive electric car, that costs a lot more than its gas counterpart, the Renault Clio that has a starting price of 19.990 AUD (12.703 €).
The electric car market in Australia is very limited and while the Renault Kangoo ZE electric delivery van can already be bought by companies, so far remains unavailable to the public.
Anyway, the Australian motoring magazine adds an interesting comment:
While the tiny Renault Twizy EV won’t be imported here because it doesn’t meet design rules, we understand Renault Australia could add a third battery-powered model to its EV fleet, in the form of an all-new mid-size electric SUV that’s yet to be revealed.
It’s a shame because the Renault TWIZY would be perfect for Australian weather, however an electric SUV is good news.
