The new generation Renault ZOE finally has its prices revealed in its domestic market, France. Without further ado, let’s see them.

EDITION ONE

R135 (100 kW)

39.600 €

33.600 €

The prices in this table include the battery price of 8.100 euros, so you can easily compare them with prices from other electric cars. The government subsidy to buy electric cars in France is 6.000 euros.

The CCS fast charging capability is a 1.000 euros option, which I think should be standard.

 

In Germany we also have prices for some variants, but not all.

The prices in this table include the battery price of 8.090 euros, so you can easily compare them with prices from other electric cars. The government subsidy to buy electric cars in Germany is 4.000 euros.

 

The new generation Renault ZOE with its WLTP range of 395 km (245 miles), fast 22 kW on-board charger, CCS and modern safety features is a great electric car, but is still expensive. However, without any real alternatives in the popular supermini segment it’ll continue to be one of the most successful electric cars in the European market, only behind the inevitable Tesla Model 3.

I’m curious to see if the upcoming Opel Corsa-e and the PEUGEOT e-208 will challenge ZOE’s comfortable position, or will we have to wait for the Volkswagen ID.3 to arrive. What do you think?

Nice info. I think the same… Too expensive.
I cant understand why a clio+battery(8000€) is 32.000€ or more. It should be 22.000€-23000€ aproximatley. The price of a Clio+8000€…

Automakers first decide how many cars they want to produce and sell, only then they decide the price (try to sell them for as much as they can). If Renault decides to sell 50.000 ZOE units in a year and thinks that it can find 50.000 buyers that pay around 30.000 euros for each that’s what it’s going to do.

As for the Clio, Renault wants to produce and sell at least 300.000 units every year, therefore they have to find the max price that at least 300.000 buyers are willing to pay for it. The starting price is below 20.000 euros for that reason. In electric cars or any other production constrained product, price and cost are only remotely related.

Summing up, why are electric cars so expensive? Because legacy automakers are protecting their ICE sales, not because technology is expensive.

That may be part of it, but I don’t Think it is the whole story. Battery cost are still not at a low enough level. That’s why Tesla is overpricing the Model 3 and pushing you towards the more expensive models with higher margins because they are bleeding cash each quarter. It will still be 5-10 years before we can see true price parity. That is also likely when Incentives will be phased out.

So right. Then you pay through the nose for maintenance and parts of Renault the Unreliable.

Precios abusivos y fuera de cualquier logica…..Con todo respeto no se a que juegan en Renault. El nuevo Ioniq BEV lo barre en todo menos en baterΓ­a pero homologa 300km WLTP y es mucho mΓ‘s capaz.

€1000 for CCS which only can use about 50kW? This indeed should be standard since it is anyway only a cable to the battery. If the charge speed does not change, Renault has a significant disadvantage in regards to the Peugeot 208.

26.000€ plus 6.000€ (at least) of fuel saving every 100.000 Km. “Cost of Ownership” is the same as a 14.000€ Clio if you drive 200.000 km in the whole life of the car.

EV price superiority is on the verge.

Agreed, I came up with the same results. With the French subsidy, if you drive around 20.000 km/year, you already achieved cost parity with the Zoe.

Zoe continues to be outrageously expensive. ID.3 will blow it out of the water. Shame, it’s only available next summer.

Corsa-e and e-208 will be 2.000€ cheaper than Zoe and with better TMS (liquid cooled battery). I think Zoe and Leaf are in big trouble. Air cooled batteries were supposed to help bring prices down. It looks just helped to get profits up.

The price is absurdly high, but I must say I am pleasantly surprised by the fact the battery is ‘only’ 8100 euros. That’s € 160 / kWh, sales price. So we must be very close to a cost of € 100 / kWh. Pedro’s analysis I believe is spot on. They don’t want to sell in high numbers. Yet. But in 2021 all car makers will have to and prices will go down fast. In two years from now this same car will cost €10.000 less.

Pedro, superbe info like Always! Your sources are impeccable. Do you also have the info for Belgium? Would be nice if the bottom price for Life edition would be 30.999 EUR. We can still deduct 4000 EUR in Flanders as subsidy in 2020. Deciding between buying a new ZOE or E-208

Sorry Gert, at the moment I only know prices for France and Germany.

Are those prices for the 41 kWh battery or the 52 kWh battery?

Reply to  Lars

These are prices for the new generation ZOE, I don’t think that you can get the old battery with the new generation.

As far as I know there are both the 41 kWh battery and the 52 kWh battery.

Also, in the UK I believe we usually can get discounts on the sticker price. Demand may be too high for that, but I’d hope to get Β£2k or so off the Β£26670 (with CCS) post UK subsidy sticker price (rough guess), which would be pretty good.

Here in Germany Renault dealers offer up to 24 percent price discount for the new 2020 Zoe to private end customers. Delivery starts next week. Peugeot (still) says: 0 percent discount fΓΌr the new e-208. By the way: Most german car dealers still HATE electric cars…

A post on goingelectric.de shows a link to screenshot for battery on the Zoe. The 41kwh version will be software limited but identical to 52kwh version.
