Renault has confirmed UK specs and prices for the new, heavily revised version of its Zoe electric car.
It comes with a new 52kWh battery, capable of a range of up to 245 miles on the WLTP test cycle, which represents a 32% increase over the outgoing model.
The new Zoe now also supports fast DC charging as well as the existing AC options, meaning up to 90 miles of range can be added in half an hour.
There's a choice of two electric motors, producing 110hp or 135hp, and both come with a one pedal driving mode which increases regenerative braking and allows the car to be driven with the accelerator pedal only.
The car's exterior has been extensively restyled, with a new bonnet, front bumper and grille, with LED headlights and fog lights as standard.
Inside there's a new 10in TFT instrument cluster, which is also standard, along with either a 7in or 9.3in infotainment touchscreen depending on spec, with Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity.
There's also a revised centre console featuring a new electronic gear selector, along with a new electronic parking brake, while rear seat passengers have access to two USB ports.
Available driver assistance systems include autonomous emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, blind spot monitoring and a hands-free parking assist function.
Three equipment grades are available - Play, Iconic and GT Line.
Two purchasing options are on offer - either the car and battery can be bought outright, or the car can be bought on its own and the battery leased.
Outright purchase prices including the £3,500 government plug-in car grant are £25,670 for a 110hp Play, £27,170 for a 110hp Iconic, £27,620 for a 135hp Iconic, and £28,620 for a 135hp GT Line.
Respective prices for battery lease versions are £7,000 cheaper.
Orders are due to open in mid-September, with the first deliveries expected in January 2020.
