Some ZE50s are the higher performance Intens variation (with 100 kW power).

Safety Issues

In late 2021, the European NCAP gave the new 2021 Zoe a score of zero stars. NZ dealers opted to stop selling the Zoe.

However, the configuration sold in NZ was different from the European model used in the NCAP tests and came standard with more safety options.

There is no ANCAP rating as the Zoe was not sold in Australia, so NZ’s RightCar site lists no safety ratings at all.
