Europe: 2014 Renault Zoe pure-electric car could have 220 mile range

Small car, small price, huge range according to rumour

The 2012 Renault Zoe isn’t even in UK showrooms yet, but already there are intriguing rumours surrounding the second generation of the pure-electric vehicle due in 2014.

In the build up to the unveiling of the 2012 Zoe small car at next month’s Geneva Motor Show, French magazine BFM Business reports that Renault will release a new version in 2014, with a maximum range of 220 miles. That’s more than double the range of the 2012 Zoe’s 100 miles, which is also the current market standard.

BFM Business says the extra range will be possible due to advances in battery technology, although that would be pretty spectacular progress. asked Renault how much truth there is to the article and they were predictably tight-lipped. “We haven’t confirmed the range of this new model yet,” said a spokesperson. “Everything is under wraps until press conference of 6 March in Geneva. The only guidance given so far officially is we believe it will have best range of any EV at launch.”
