  1. Battery lease change

    Renault ZOE
    If you exceed the PCP mileage as well it ends up as 15p a mile. This can get quite expensive. AFAIK RCI don't like you to have a PCP and battery mileage too far apart, although you could start out with 10,500 miles for both and then lower the battery mileage. The PCP mileage is a contract...
  2. Returning Zoe -disputing RCI charges

    General EV Discussion
    This seems to be a favourite of theirs. I supposedly had dimples caused by seatbelts on handback of mine last March, although I couldn't tell they were there either. When you get the bill from RCI there will be a number to call and dispute the charges. They were very amicable to me and...

    What does Chademo max at? I have no idea what CCS is capable of (at this point in time, not what's promised for folk with mega expensive cars) And if you'll actually read my post, you'll note that I was talking about not using a rapid. Please look before you leap.

    You are quite right. EcoT can't do any permutation of 2 on a pump and you can't get DC to work whilst the other is still plugged in, but you can start an AC session once the DC has finished even if the DC is still plugged in (user was time expired and still in the store). I did it at Ikea...

    This gets my vote.(y) AFAIK the better chargers can do both. I remember charging somewhere with a Leaf next to me. Certainly you don't have to wait for a finished Chademo to be unplugged on EcoT pumps. I would be happy not to use a rapid (and thereby block it) and have 22 or 43 kWh posts...

    I did over 250 miles on the motorway over the last couple of weeks. Zoes are going places, man.
  7. How long do RCI take these days to set up a DD?

    Renault ZOE
    First monthly gets added on at the end. So RCI will expect you to hand your car back or take GFV after 25 months on 2 year contract and 37 months on 3 year contract. This is what has happened in the past.
  8. Best place to get PCP on a ZOE..?

    Renault ZOE
    I think the confusion comes from the various upgrades which have taken place over the last few years. You have to discount previous models (unless buying second hand) and only have to consider the current model as it is the only one you can buy new. Old models are swiftly discontinued after...

    Nooooo. Please Nooooo. Unless of course you provide separate AC posts with 43 kWh capability.

    This is probably the main thing. There should be enough of them not to have to travel 350 to get to a charger. Maybe, their operational radius should be somewhere in the range of sub 100 miles. There seems to be enough repairs to keep them busy at that distance. Notice all the dots, she...

    That's a nice colour. No-one could miss you in that.
  13. Barriers of electric vehicle adoption?

    General EV Discussion
    Done it, Jack. Much better. Can I suggest that questions 5 and 7 be multi-choice. There are a few makers with EV coming shortly that I would be interested in.
  14. Barriers of electric vehicle adoption?

    General EV Discussion
    Sorry Jack. The survey contains too many errors to complete. I'll add - you've put age 60 to 65 and then put over 60. I come into both categories;). Don't be put off. My daughter has just completed her Masters and had to revise and revise her questionnaires several times before I'd give...
  15. Wales to Scotland in a Zoe

    Renault ZOE
    It's not that bad now as long as you stick close to the north(ern) coast. Most of the EcoT ones along the a55 are working (but I'll place a caveat that they are non too reliable). And there are a few Polars in the Colwyn Bay/Bangor area.
