Electric vehicle particularities

As you know, an electric vehicle react the  same way to as an internal-combustion vehicle. Renault ZOE use oil or gas, so our engineers don’t to monitor these items. But Renault ZOE components required attention during cold testing.

First of all, we had to how cold weather conditions the battery . notably in terms of:

. a very cold battery fully charge. It can be compared to a tank that contracts in the The result is, of course, reduced

  Power . a cold battery provide all the power required by the reflected in weaker acceleration.

Charge . an overly cold cannot be charged too fast, for longer quick charging Cold, however, has no impact on charging, via a Wall-Box.

We also had to the charging system :

The charging has to remain accessible (flap not in freezing weather)

The cable has to be enough to be rolled up at any time

The must not remain blocked in the

Our first conclusions on Renault ZOE s  At -25°C,  Renault ZOE is fully and drops in performance are almost The battery performs very in cold conditions from point of view.

More in cold conditions is reduced but Renault ZOE remains one of the best electric vehicles in this thanks in particular to its reversible pump . which reduces consumption in cold weather approximately 2kW of cooling or 3kW of heat just 1kW of electricity.

Renault ZOE top marks!

Renault ZOE performs especially compared with cars, on the following points:

start-up: exactly the same at as in temperate weather, i.e. and silently. No engine warm-up, no plumes, no clatter.

first runs: the motor is not by the cold. Motorists can drive off away and floor the accelerator having to warm the car up. Also, in motion, the battery heats up and improves the points mentioned

heating: on top of being frugal, the pump provides heat The car doesn’t need to be started minutes beforehand.

pre-conditioning to heat the cabin up a little and the windows before taking drivers simply pre-program the and the car is at “room temperature” when get in. This will never be with a combustion vehicle, the engine needs to be turned on.

Our engineers were pleasantly by Renault ZOE – by the fast-action heat by the strong performance of the battery on in cold conditions and its ability to the motor at very low temperatures, and by the road holding, especially on slippery surfaces . The battery’s and low position is a big advantage here.

thanks to Fabrice Izzillo, engineer for Renault’s electric range, for all this information.



Sounds but if everything is going to plan why isn t car on in UK yet?

Hello Nick, I m afraid we can t that information, as it is confidential. for your interest,

The Renault team

What is the range you can approximately at full charge and start at 0 degrees Celsius and at -15 Celsius?

I like the heat concept in EV. sounds very what it the performance like in climates?

What ambient air is needed to achieve the stated CoP of 3 and how this deteriorate as the ambient air drops below 0 degree C?

Are any issues with the performance of the due to the external evaporator icing up?
