The EV itself 
Our Zoe performed faultlessly, the only issue I encountered was the passenger vanity light became loose. We learned that the colder outside temperature reduced our expected range by about 15 miles.

 

Road trip conclusion
Yes you can do longer trips in a Zoe, all the charging en route was free as well! Check the weather and plan your range and
charging accordingly.
