Spied: 2013 Renault Zoe EV

Back at the 2010 Paris motor show, Renault unveiled a thinly-disguised concept of the Zoe, called Zoe Preview. Said to be 90% production ready, the first prototypes of the Zoe Z.E (Zero Emissions) have begun testing on public roads in Northern Sweden.

Beneath the disguise, the huge Renault emblem in-between the headlights and emphasised character lines on the side lend a dynamic look. The rear lights are made up of LEDs, further echoing the 2010 Zoe Preview concept.

The 2013 Zoe Z.E will underpin the upcoming Clio supermini, with drivetrain expected derived from the Nissan Leaf EV. The finished article will be powered by a 79bhp (80PS/60kW) electric motor with 222Nm (164lb-ft) of torque, giving a range of 100 miles (160km). Furthermore, Renault has committed to offering a hotter derivative of the Zoe, producing around 134bhp (136PS/100kW) and 271Nm (200lb-ft) of torque

The Zoe Z.E will go on sale in Winter 2012, priced around €12,000.
