The Renault manufacturer has applied a price increase to several of its vehicles, including some electric cars. The Zoé, Twingo E-Tech and Twizy are particularly affected.
It was predictable: between the shortage of semiconductors, the war in Ukraine which poses certain supply problems and the increase in the price of raw materials, the price of electric cars was logically going to increase. This is in any case what could be suggested with regard to the delicate situation of the moment.
It didn’t take long to see the consequences. The Dacia Spring has undergone a double increase in the space of a month, joined more recently by three electric cars from the Renault range: the Zoé, the Twingo E-Tech and the Twizy, as noted by the specialized media TheArgus.
The ecological bonus always in the game
In January 2022, the French manufacturer had updated its Zoé offer by modifying the name of the finishes, not without slightly lowering the prices. At the time, the Zoé Equilibre (110 hp), Evolution (110 hp) and Techno (135 hp) were snapped up at respective prices of 32,000, 33,500 and 35,200 euros.
By taking a look at the online configurator, the situation is not the same today. Each model saw its price increase by 800 euros, to reach 32,800, 34,300 and 36,000 euros. Finally, the Techno version returns to its initial price of 2021. And fortunately, the game of the ecological bonus is absolutely not turned upside down.
At this price, you still benefit from the maximum aid of 6,000 euros, which should be renewed after July 1, 2022. To find out the exact price of your Zoé, it is therefore sufficient to subtract 6,000 euros from the aforementioned prices.
The Mégane E-Tech spared
TheArgus mentions another increase to the credit of the Twingo E-Tech: the latter jumps by 500 euros, for an entry price of 23,650 euros now. Finally, the Renault Twizy adds 200 euros to its final note regardless of the version, and therefore starts at 11,600 euros now.
For its part, the Renault Mégane E-Tech is spared.
