Only 300 of this limited edition EV will be made. So you might want to be snappy if you want to get your hands on a piece of history.

The Limited Edition Riviera
Renault is adding to its award-winning Zoe E-Tech range with a limited edition EV based on the top-of-the-range GT Line. Only 300 of the Riviera will be produced. This should guarantee it sells out and sells out quickly.
So, what’s different about this EV compared to some of the other rides in the Renault Zoe line?
Quite a lot. For starters, it sports a Midnight Blue Metallic ID paint job, 16″ ‘Seidon’ diamond-cut alloy wheels, and painted white body stripes. The latter won’t make you go faster, but at least you’ll look the part.
This is the first time Renault has offered Metallic ID paint for the Zoe. Again, adding to the exclusivity of owning one.
Price-wise, expect to pay around £32,295 (price includes deductions made after UK plug-in grant). Without the grant, you’re looking at a starting price of £34,795. You can actually order it right now over on the Renault site.
Optimised For Hands-Free Parking
We should highlight the fact that, as part of the GT Line, the Riviera comes with hands-free parking, which is always handy if you’re parking in a pinch — or just don’t enjoy parking, in general.
You’re basically getting a standard Zoe outside of the outlined changes we’ve already mentioned. The vehicle can travel up to 238 miles (WLTP) on a single charge. And you can charge the battery (52 kWh) to 80% in just 70 minutes.
Other notable features include:
- Full LED headlights
- 10″ TFT Driver Information Display
- Automatic Air Conditioning
- And more

Furthermore, the Zoe comes with a comprehensive list of safety and driver assistance features. This includes front and rear parking sensors with a rearview camera. Lane assist and Automatic Emergency Braking Systems (AEBS) only add to the appeal.
Renault Will End Zoe In Time
We recently covered reports that Renault intends to discontinue the Zoe range in time. It will be replaced by the new Renault 5 between 2023 and 2024. Zoe originally burst onto the EV scene back in 2012 and has gone on to win countless awards/praise amongst drivers (mostly across Europe).

It’s an affordable electric car that is often tied to the Nissan Leaf, especially in the UK. We aren’t surprised that Renault wants to champion its success with this limited edition Riviera.
Will you be purchasing this limited edition EV when it’s made available? We were thinking about it. After all, the Renault Zoe is such an iconic vehicle, and this version sounds/looks great. Drop a comment below. Tell us what you think.
