    General EV Discussion
    Have already posted this in the Renault Zoe forum where there is a discussion between the 2 charging speed models but figured it's interesting from a general EV perspective too. If doing a long journey, is range or charge speed more important (if you can only pick one)? Well, let's let CNet...
