(REPOST: Inside EVs)

After the previous battery upgrade from 22 kWh to 41 kWh, now it’s time to put that higher power R110 electric motor – 80 kW instead 68 kW on display.

Other changes are a special new Blueberry Purple color and Android Auto compatibility.

Orders for the ZOE R110 will be accepted soon.

“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.”
