    Depends on your style of driving, your use of heating and the roads you use (urban vs motorway) but you should get north of 200km.

    In the real world you will definately be needing to think about charging by 180 km.

    Sub zero conditions 240km is the worst I’ve achieved- that’s with full heating and keeping with traffic.

    Summer - 270- 300km depending on the right foot

    Based on a mixture of motorway and national primary routes-

    I’ve done the 100km commute 3 times in summer without charging but it was to the wire and going easy.

    Very underestimated little car.

    The official figures from Renault were 300km range summer, 200km range winter. A lot less of course if you drive at 120km/h GPS speed.

    What are your driving patterns, colmkirk? A lot of prospective EV buyers on here are getting the wrong idea from some owners because experiences are not comparable or taken out of context.

    we're getting a lot more than 200kms out of our one, we go from the Midlands to Lucan once a week in it at motorway speed and its still doing the round trip with some to spare.

    Watched the colder winter range this week.
    The GOM today was the same as it was all week - 242km’s.
    That’s after the 100k round trip.
    30km motorway at 110km going in with traffic and 20km national primary route.

    Going home motorway speed is 120kmph on motorway
    Heating set for 22deg c.
    Pre conditioned before leaving.

    Morning temp for commute -1deg c
    Evening temp 5deg but at 2deg by the time I got home.

    Obviously speed is the big factor....

    Is yours the q90 model? Would the range differ much on the q and r model?

    I thought the ze40 was a nice drive last year when I test drove one. Interior is rather basic in a normal one (ie not a signature).

    Turn off for me is the ESBs thing of turning some of the 22 kw AC public charging into 44 kw DC.


    Indicating that public charging of an AC only charging Zoe will become harder in future.

    Mind you - the 22 kw AC is still the most common charge standard at the moment in terms of public charging It's more a long term issue.
