    A system which protects every seat and every occupant.

    Collision protection which works for both 3 and 5 door vehicles.

And if you choose our optional hire car cover:

  • We’ll provide the use of an electric or hybrid hire car if your green machine is off the road

Renault electric car insurance

So, where do Renault stand on electric cars?

Here's the lowdown:


As all-electric cars go, the range offered by Renault is at the more affordable end of the price spectrum.

  • The MEGANE E-Tech's 220 hp motor will get you from zero to 62 mph in just 7.5 seconds. If you drive at a more leisurely pace, it'll cover up to 280 miles on one charge.
  • If zipping around town is more your scene, then the Renault ZOE might be for you. The ZOE was awarded the Best Car for New Drivers in the 2023 AutoTrader New Car Awards.
  • Need an electric car for a family? The Renault Scenic is 100% electric, with a 545 litre boot, 379 mile range and a heat pump to keep the temperature down in the cabin.

We're always in top gear when it comes to car cover
