Renault Zoe ZE50 2021
Introducing your road trip
Newton Abbot to Manchester for three days for my Grandson’s birthday, approx. 560 miles round trip.
Planning & preparation
Pod point, BE.EV apps, RFID card, and Metrolink map. Previous taster trip to the Midlands also helped.
Left Devon fully charged, topped up at Wednesbury (1.5hrs), Trafford Centre (all day) and Cheltenham (1.5hrs) on the return leg. No problems encountered.
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
