Should we also clarify that "claims" be verified with a picture of the trip report screen to prove your claim. To avoid any silly made up claims. Also should be over a single charge.

Oh and can this topic be made sticky please.

Great initiative.
With the risk of being OT in my first ever post, I'd like to post a failed attempt.
It failed because
1) I didn't reach 200 miles/320km and
2) had to charge

So in fact a miserable failure. Still this trip made me 100% confident I will easily reach 200 miles with the Zoe. The trip in question was made in Norway, from the small city of Drøbak to the winter resort of Geilo 800meters over sea level in the mountains. I had no expectation I would even come close to doing this trip in one charge. In normal temperatures with less climb I think the Zoe would do 300-350km/187-218miles with ease!

So the facts of the "failed" attempt was:
Distance: 150 miles/ 241 km traveled
Average speed: 60 km/h
Energy used: 43 kwh (charged for 10-15 min)
Temperature: minus 24 celsius (!)
Climb: 800 meters net, highest point was 1100 meters over sea level
Road conditions: severe with ice, snow and deep tracks (the TOMTOM gave me constant warnings of slippery roads - nice!)

So, the Zoe can't do 200 miles at -24°C? I think we need to alert all the EV media of Renault's outrageous range claims.

:D

:cool: I might have picked the coldest day of the year a few days ago - it's fortunately much warmer now. But I'm really impressed with winter performance. A lot of it is probably down to the battery heater (which inner workings I need to read up on in some other threads).

Must not confuse NEDC with "NEDC" ("Norwegian Extreme Driving Cycle") I guess :)

Switched on ECO at 185 miles and drove to local charger arrived with 194 miles and 8 miles remaining before charging, still had not seen 'Limited performance' so assume 200 would of been achievable.

Then after 100% charge

only had mines a few months
i only do a few miles per day...but i think with Eco mode you could easy get 200 miles (although i rarely use eco mode)

funny thing

the other day i passed a woman in a Zoe...and before i knew what i was doing i waved at her....and she waved back :)
its almost like your part of a wee Eco club :)

Every other Zoe I have seen was driven by a woman who was completely unaware of the presence of another Zoe, and did not return my eve.
That said other half says it is sad to wave at each other, is it a male thing?

Can I ask why you picked a 90? It doesn't sound like it fits your usage profile as well as a 22kwh Zoe would have.

i got the top of the range one with all the extras
and i bought the battery out right also
the price i got it for was unbelievable ....what a great deal i got from the dealer in hillington

the 22kw was never on my radar to be honest more for the resell value point of view...as i want a tesla model3 as soon as i can get my hands on one :)
