2022 Renault Zoe safety upgraded after 0-star Euro NCAP rating

Two months after getting an embarrassing 0-star safety rating in the Euro NCAP crash test, the 2022 Renault Zoe has received an upgrade for improved safety in France. Prior to this move, Renault had slashed the price of Zoe by EUR 500 at the start of the year that could also soften the impact from the Euro NCAP results.

AEB comes standard

Renault has made Active Emergency Braking (AEB) or autonomous emergency braking a part of the standard equipment in the Zoe. In case a vehicle in front of the 2022 Renault Zoe makes a sudden stop, a forward collision warning alerts the driver with a light and a tone. If the driver doesn’t react and steps on the brakes, the AEB system automatically engages the brakes to bring the car to a halt.

The driver gets a frontal collision alert when driving at speeds between 7 km/h and 140 km/h. However, the AEB system can activate the brakes on non-response at speeds between 7 km/h and 85 km/h.

2022 Renault Zoe price unchanged

The prices of the Renault Zoe in the brand’s home market have remained unchanged post the safety upgrade. Renault offers the electric supermini in equilibre, evolution, and techno grades, with prices starting at EUR 32,000, EUR 33,500, and EUR 35,200, respectively.
