Why did you choose this car?
Size, other EVs at the time were too big. I thought an EV would be fun – it is. Perfect for my needs as I only use it for driving locally.


Positives – List 3 or more reasons why you love this car.

  • Easy to drive
  • Perfect for my needs
  • It’s fun.


Negatives – List 3 or more things that you really don’t like about this car.

  • The sneaky sharp corners on the rear doors. That is all.


Have you experienced any faults with the car? If so, what have they been?
No, not this Zoe. My first Zoe developed a software issue that was tough to fix so Renault exchanged it for my second Zoe, which has been perfect.


What are the standout tech features of the car?
Pre-conditioning from the key fob (I don’t do Apps) – it is magic!


Surprise us! Tell us something people wouldn’t readily know about this car.
It will beat most cars off the line at traffic lights.


Rate your EV out of 5.


What car are you interested in next and why?
Not yet interested in another. A pity the new Zoe failed the crash test and doesn’t pre-condition from the key fob, otherwise it would have been a new Zoe.


What home charging unit do you use? Would you recommend it to others and why?
Rolec – cheap and cheerful. It does all I need and has been reliable.
