Pure electric cars emit no tailpipe emissions, and the ZOE scores maximum points in this part of the assessment.

Comments

Green NCAP does not currently take into account the carbon dioxide emitted in producing the electricity used to power electric vehicles. However, its measurement method does account for energy losses during charging and discharging i.e. it measures the actual amount of energy which is put into the car, rather than what is used by it. Even on this measure, the ZOE's efficiency remains above the point at which it would begin to lose points, and it scores maximum points in this part of the assessment.

Comments

As with the Clean Air assessment, the ZOE scores full points here as it emits no gases at the tailpipe.

Our verdict

The ZOE has been the best-selling all-electric vehicle in France since 2013. The car has had various motors and battery capacities in that time but here it is tested with the 80 kW, 52 kWh configuration. The car scores a maximum five stars and gets maximum points in all areas of assessment. In the WLTC cold test, the measured range closely matches the published value of 395 km but the average is lowered by some of the more demanding tests.
