Beyond initial cost-savings
As part of Renault’s scrappage programme, allowing drivers to swap old cars for new models, you could save up to £5,000 on a new car. When combining this reduction with the UK government plug-in grant of £4,500, a 2018 Renault ZOE EV costs £13,420. Starting at £18,420 (before the scrappage discount), the 2018 What?Car EV car of the year is an incredible value. Offering a real-world 186 mile range, it’s perfect for daily commutes and quick weekend trips. Also, when driving through London, the Congestion Charge zone is free for EV’s like the ZOE.
“…the ZOE suits shorter commutes and daily errands perfectly. It’s more practical than a Volkswagen e-up! and cheaper to buy or lease than a BMW i3. Not to mention the fact it’ll cost you mere pennies to run.” – Auto Express
“The ZOE was the best selling electric car in Europe last year and now includes Android Auto as well as a seven-inch colour touchscreen and Bluetooth connectivity. Retail customers will also receive a free wallbox so they can easily charge their ZOE at home, and this applies whether they purchase through the scrappage scheme or not.” – Auto World
Scrappage for all
If your car is older than 7 years, chances are it qualifies for Renault’s scrappage programme. Any car or light commercial vehicle, from any manufacturer, registered before 31 December 2011 is eligible for Renault’s relaunched scrappage scheme as long as it’s been registered to the owner for at least 90 days. These savings can then be put towards any of Renault’s wide range of cars.
Renault ZOE EV tops offer
Ranging from £1,000 to £5,000, drivers who purchase a new Renault ZOE EV benefit the most. Other models include (with respective savings), Scénic family (£1,000), Mégane family (£1,000), Koleos (£1,000), Twingo (£1,500), Captur (£2,000), Clio (£2,000), and Kadjar (£3,000). The Renault scrappage scheme is active now and runs until 7 January 2019. The customer’s new Renault must be registered by 31 March 2019. The scrappage scheme is not compatible with any other finance or cash offers but can be used in conjunction with Renault’s £500 test drive offer. The scrapped car will be permanently taken off the road.
