    Renault ZOE
    Hi, whist dancing around getting the dealer to change the battery on my Zoe, they gave me this feedback on some service documentation. I would be interested to know what the safety factor actually is, because I charge it every day/night via the "granny lead". And actually, I figure trickle...

  7. Absence of EV sellers and mechanics

    General EV Discussion
