Renault PRO+ has revealed the newest addition to its growing LCV range – the new Zoe Van. Based on the Zoe passenger car, the latest addition to Renault’s expanding Z.E. PRO+ range offers more choice for commercial vehicle buyers looking to switch to an electric van. Renault says that with the same 245-mile WLTP range as the Zoe car, the new zero-emissions LCV delivers versatility and reassurance to commercial buyers keen to experience the benefits of running an electric commercial vehicle.
The new Zoe Van joins Renault’s expanding range of electric commercial vehicles – alongside the Kangoo Z.E. and Master Z.E. – in a range that now spans a wide variety of offerings in terms of size, driving range, load space and carrying capacity.
There’s a choice of Business and Business+ trim levels in line with other Renault PRO+ commercial vehicles.
All-New Renault Zoe Van powertrain, range and charging
The All-New Zoe Van benefits from the same powertrain featured in the regular ZOE car, meaning a powerful 52kWh battery and 80kW R110 electric motor resulting in a WLTP range of up to 245 miles on a single charge on Business models.
The R110 motor delivers acceleration of zero to 62mph in 11.4 seconds, while the zero to 31mph sprint is completed in 3.9 seconds.
There is the option of 50kW DC charging on both trim levels, allowing Zoe Van drivers to charge from zero to 80 per cent in just one hour and ten minutes. If time is tight, a 30-minute charge is enough for a 90-mile boost in range via the DC charger.
The charging inlet is accessed behind the Renault badge on the front of the vehicle, with Renault’s on-board Chameleon charger adapting to the power source for the most time and energy-efficient charge for the vehicle. It also gives drivers the flexibility to use a range of chargers available publicly. As standard, the Zoe Van comes with type-2 charging cable, this allows 100 per cent charge in just three hours using a 22kW public charger.
Two trim level choices
Replicating other vehicles in the Renault PRO+ line-up, the new Zoe Van is available in a choice of two models – the Business and Business+.
As standard, Business trim brings these features:
- 10-inch TFT instrument cluster
- 7-inch Easy Link infotainment screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity
- Manual air conditioning
- Electric front windows
- Renault keycard with handsfree entry
- Electrically adjustable heated door mirrors
- Automatic headlamps and wipers
- Full LED headlamps with C-shape daytime running light
- 15-inch steel wheels with Michelin EV Energy Tyres
- USB socket
- Driver and passenger airbags
- Isofix points on passenger seat
- Front fog lights
- Cruise control with speed limiter
- Z.E. Voice (low speed pedestrian warning)
Moving up to Business+ trim enhances the ZOE’s technology and comfort features. Included on all Business+ models are:
- Satellite navigation
- Wireless Smartphone Charging
- Rear parking sensors
- Rear parking camera
- 100 per cent recycled seat upholstery
- Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
- Lane Departure Warning (LDW)

- Automatic Climate Control
- Driver’s one-touch electric window
- Electrically adjustable heated door mirrors, electrically folding, finished in body colour

A range of options is available to Zoe Van buyers. On top of the same range of eight exterior colour choices for the Zoe, the specification of Business+ models can be expanded with the Technology Pack.
This incorporates Renault’s 9.3-inch portrait-oriented Easy Link touchscreen infotainment system, front and rear parking sensors and a rear-view camera.
Additionally, the Winter Pack is available, enhancing comfort in colder conditions with heated seats and a heated steering wheel.
Versatile load space
The Zoe’s load area has been created by removing the rear seats of the existing ZOE passenger car. A completely flat load floor and mesh bulkhead behind the front seats ensures the load area is safe and secure and usable as possible, while the rear doors bring an extra dimension of versatility, enabling access via the side of the vehicle. For added security, the rear windows are disabled and covered in an opaque film.
The solid lower section of bulkhead extends around where the edge of the rear seats would ordinarily be, preventing items falling out when the rear doors are opened without impeding the usable load space. There is a level boot floor and minimal loading lip. The existing parcel shelf remains which aids security but can be removed to make room for bulkier items. There is also load area cover for added security. The new Zoe Van has also been fitted with a Thatcham approved Category 1 alarm as standard.
A total load volume of one cubic metre is on offer in the All-New ZOE Van, thanks to 1,205mm of length in the load bay and maximum load width of 1,110mm. The ability to make use of the side doors for ease of access boosts flexibility for awkwardly shaped or smaller items.
Maximum payload is rated at up to 387kg (Business) meaning small but bulky items can be carried in the load area. All Zoe Vans feature protective rubber flooring in the load area with four anchorage points on the floor.
Warranty and servicing options
The Zoe van boasts a five-year, 100,000-mile warranty, mirroring the rest of Renault’s car range. The first two years feature unlimited mileage restrictions, while the remaining three have a 100,000-mile limit. The Z.E. 50 battery receives an eight-year, 100,000-mile warranty.
Service intervals for the ZOE Van are every 12 months or 18,000 miles, whichever comes sooner.
