In a world premiere, Renault will unveil its urban mobility concept car EZ-GO, on Tuesday 6th March at 9 a.m. on Renault’s stand (Hall 4) during the press conference, broadcast live on www.groupe.renault.com).

The 2018 ZOE and its new R110 motor

The 2018 version of the ZOE, Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle, features the R110, its new electric 80 kW motor, providing more power and even greater driving enjoyment. The R110 produces an additional 12 kW of power with the same overall dimensions and the same weight as its predecessor, the R90 motor. This allows the driver to benefit from greater acceleration on express ways, shaving almost two seconds off its 80-120 km/h time.

The 2018 model of the ZOE brings also new connectivity with Android Auto compatibility and has a new exclusive and stylish, dark, metallic body colour: Blueberry Purple.

New 1.3 Energy TCe petrol engine

Renault unveils its new 1.3 Energy TCe engine in the Renault Scenic and Renault Captur. This recently released new-generation engine has been developed jointly by the Alliance and its partner Daimler. It complies with the two partners’ highest quality standards and offers a wider range of power than the previous TCe engine, more torque (in particular at low speeds), lower CO2 emissions and reduced fuel consumption.

Talisman S-Edition

The Renault Talisman range has expanded with the addition of the S-Edition, an exclusive, more stylish model and the first with the new 1.8 TCe 225 petrol engine. This model has a sporty interior – black overstitched in red – and all the latest equipment. It also includes pack 4-Control damping control and new 19’’ aluminium rims as standard. The Talisman S-Edition will be available in Europe from September 2018.
