ZOE leads Renault’s charge


N IGEL Potter can’t the grin off his face these and in fairness, managing a Renault at the moment is probably one of the better in the motor industry.

After a restructuring which saw models and axed and a ruthless determination to build quality standards and problems with the electrical in particular, Renault has now turned a

This year it has launched the new Clio, a lovely car, it is the industry by storm with the of its Dacia value brand is doing exceptionally well in North Staffordshire), it is about to the Captur as a rival to the Nissan and other small sports and it has just unveiled this the new ZOE, its all-new electric

By the time you read this I will have spent a day Renault/Dacia and driven several of its new including the ZOE which you can read next week but for the moment I to take the word of Nigel, who in his office at the Holdcroft Renault on Leek Road.

He simply It’s brilliant. It is the first car that looks like a car, it is affordable, it is comfortable, to drive and above all it is practical real world driving and a proper range.

I live 30 miles away and I do not a home charger so the ZOE has to get me from at night and back in the morning but with a 95 per cent charge, not a range, I can do the return journey it at the same speed as a normal car and have 24 miles range

It depends on how you drive and obviously if you are along the motorway at high the ZOE is limited to 84 mph it will get through the more quickly but on main and in towns where the braking can put energy back into the it is probably better than a petrol or diesel car.»

ZOE is the only electric vehicle to the Chameleon charger.

Patented by this charger is compatible all power levels from 3kW up to

RENAULT Kangoo Van Z.E. – 22 kWh Li-ion

Charging batteries at a charging can take between 30 minutes and hours, with 80 per cent of battery power able to be within 30 minutes using a Charger.

OK, so it has a proper range but what the 64,000 dollar question so to — how much is it? So far EVs have far too expensive for most pockets but the ZOE in at £13,995 and for that you also get a charger unit installed at home.

Nigel says: I this is the first electric car is going to tempt normal out of their petrol and diesel

It looks like a normal it costs about the same, it is easier to drive because are no gears and of course you never to visit a filling station.

Electric cars have slow to take off but I think have been too challenging, and limited for the average motorist. But at what is happening.

BMW is about to get EVs with its i3 and i8 and I think the BMW reputation give the EV industry a big boost and we now cars like ZOE in the showroom genuinely offers a lot of advantages a conventional car with none of the of previous EVs. This be the game changer.»
