Hi everyone!

Just bought my first EV, a secondhand 2013 Zoe. I have done some research but I am unsure which model it is and what charging it can take. I know it’s a type 2 etc, but how many kW can it charge at, and how long would it take to charge up from nearly empty.

Great to drive though and a good feeling when you charge up!!

Hi Richard & welcome,
Zoe's were all rapid capable at that age.
The Q210 rapid charge can charge at up to 43kW and get to 80% in ~ 25 mins, hour and a bit for a full charge.

If it has a rear camera it is the intens, if no camera its a Expression, if it has a slot in the dash for a diffuser its a Zen.

Maybe if you put the car registration into here https://renault.motor-admin.com/warranty/vehicle-details-1 it will tell you whether it is a Q model or an R model. Q can charge upto 43kW whereas R can charge upto 22kW.

How much did you end up paying for a 2013 model? I've been tempted by them myself

EDIT: oops, Mo1 is right

If looking at a 2013 Zoe I would make sure it has a warranty as repairs can be very expensive.

In case you meant home charging, then it's 7kW and about 4 hours.

I bought a Q90 model with 41 kW/h battery pack and 43kw quick charging engine, because for me it's very important to have quick charging while on the road.
Here I made a video where you can see how long it will take charging at a 43 kw charger from 1% state of charge to 100%

I’m amazed at everyone’s knowledge in here - yes it’s an expression (as I found when using the link posted by Metcast)

So am I correct in thinking it should be able to quick charge @43kW i.e 1%-80% ~25 mins? Even though it’s an “old” 2013 model?

Metcast - paid £3k with 9k miles on the clock. Think the Zoe’s have a 5 year warranty on the electrical system so I have until September this year. But I thought of it as a bargain at that price(?) so if something does go wrong I should be able to cover it albeit not too much!!

For me it was a good test to see if I could go electric, especially seeing my “other” car is a Q7 oil burner, (which I haven’t used for 6 weeks now and thinking of selling it!!)

On a closing note, sorry for the really late reply......

In real world figures I believe it should do it in roughly 35-40 minutes. It will start off fast (43kW) and slowly reduce and then really slow down at 80%.
That's a brilliant price! If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the car from?

I’ll guess I’ll be able to see what’s going into the car via the charger (as long as it’s a 43kW charger etc)?

I got the car by chance, I was talking to an old guy who had it but was scared to carry on driving. He said he took it back to the Renault garage and was offered £2k for it! He suggested £3 so I took it (it has suffered some cosmetic bodywork damage scuffs, nothing major) will get it re sprayed soon!

No need for all of that. I have published below spreadsheet many times here for the 22 kWh battery / LBC giving the max charging power it can take, calculated from the SOC and the battery (not ambient) temperature.

Edit: this model is used for the Charging Prediction screen.

That looks a brilliant excel sheet yoh - there, not sure I understand it though !!!

However, I would like to know what the car actually takes rather than what it should take, I supposed the only way to do this is to run the battery down a bit, plug in to a rapid charger and watch the screen?

Is there anyway to visually check it is a rapid version, by looking under the bonnet etc?

Thanks, appreciated :). It is simply what the battery CAN take, given those two parameters.

There are two other factors that limit what it will REALLY take (apart from your model car):
- what the chargepoint is able to supply (this is transmitted to the car and shown in CanZE, charging screen);
- what the cable is able to transport (the standard cable can do 22 kW).

As for the model: you can't have a R90 22 kWh as stated in your profile. But a 2013 ZOE is, by definition, a Q210 (22 kWh rapid). But, thanks to @Mo1 here is your confirmation ZOE Model Info

So referring back to Mo1’s post, can my Q210 charge at 22kW or 43kW? See the second post above for the confusion.....!

I entered my details and it says I have a ZE40 - but I don't!

It says I have a red 2017 ZE40 too - when I have a black 2015 22!

Can’t say I have ever seen a red Zoe either.

When I pick mine up after having some Renault loving will demand the ZE40 they think I have...
