Longest drive yet from a single charge. About 100 needed for work and family then continued driving to see how far I would get.

Gentle acceleration. 40 ish on quiet b roads pulling in to let cars wanting to go faster by. A lot of town driving keeping up with traffic.

Enjoyed it!

The temperature in the high 20's makes a real difference. Makes me think that this may explain the higher ranges reported from Japan if driven in these temperatures and on roads where you can't drive fast due to congestion or choose not to for temperament.

I go into a kind of zen state....;) . But seriously, on our windy Shropshire roads and in the congested streets of our medieval county town it is often hard to go much faster....!

I find the zoe uses more power at low speed and as little as 6kw at 60mph, it's really very efficient at high speed, Renalut said they are going to bring out a 186 mile range in 2016/17. It's just a real shame Renault are so crap

Yes I'd say it's temperature I managed 48 and 47 miles from normal driving over the weekend without trying.

Yes have heard elsewhere that there are those design differences between Leaf and Zoe - Leaf more efficent at lower speeds, Zoe at higher
