Free domestic charging point for Renault ZOE drivers in UK

Free domestic charging point for Renault ZOE drivers in UK

With a domestic charging point offered for free, UK drivers have even more reasons to purchase the Renault ZOE when it arrives on their market in June.

As soon as customers place their order for the ZOE, Renault will contact British Gas, the company responsible for supplying and installing the charger in the customer's home. The installation of the 32-amp single-wall box will take place roughly one month before the vehicle is delivered, ensuring everything is up and running by the time the ZOE arrives at its new home.
