How to recognize a 2019 Renault ZOE
Now that the Renault ZOE 2.0 is almost here, you can find some great deals on the outgoing model. Here’s a tip to distinguish a more recent from an older unit of the outgoing model you might find at a dealer’s lot.
With the introduction of the 2019 model year – unveiled at Paris Motor Show 2018 -, Renault finally made ZOE’s rear seat foldable in a 60/40 split. This way you can easily recognize a 2019 Renault ZOE. Previously the ZOE’s rear seat could only be folded in one big piece, which wasn’t very practical.
In the video below you can have a better look of the trunk fitted with an useful double trunk floor compartment.
This is just a small public service announcement (PSA) since many potential EV buyers aren’t aware of this change in the 2019 model year.
Finally, you might find interesting this interview with Eric Feunteun (Electric Vehicle Program Director at Renault) where he states that the ZOE already represents 12 % of Renault’s sales on the B segment in Europe. Curiously, PEUGEOT expects the all electric variant (e-208) to represent 15 % of the new PEUGEOT 208’s sales.
Anyway, it’s probably wiser to wait until the new model is revealed, before deciding if current discounts are worth it.
