With countries like France claiming to completely abolish diesel cars by the year 2020 and India’s own claim to go electric by the year, 2030 are the major benefactors for the shift towards electric.

Renault Zoe Electric Car India Launch Price

Renault officials have not confirmed the launch of the upcoming 2018 Renault Zoe EV yet be we believe the company is evaluating the process right now. The Zoe EV will be showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo. We expect the upcoming electric vehicle to launch sometime next year. The Renault Zoe EV is on sale in certain parts of the world like Europe where the range starts around €28,000 (INR 21,29,792). Since we expect Renault to import the Zoe EV as CBU, it will attract high import duty leading to an exorbitant price tag.
