FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How far can electric vehicles go on one charge?

Every vehicle provides a NEDC range – this is standard test used for comparing the fuel consumption of different models and manufacturers under the same ideal conditions. As vehicle range can vary due to several external factors Renault also provides practical summer and winter range figures.

Where can I charge an electric vehicle?

At home/office – ZOE and Kangoo Z.E. can be plugged into a Wall Box delivering either 7kW or 22kW. Renault recommends the installation of a Z.E. Ready certified wall box for your private charging needs. In Europe, electric vehicle drivers rely almost entirely on their privately installed Wall Box. In public – there is a growing network of compatible and publicly accessible charging points for electric vehicle drivers.

What charging solutions are available?

Renault insists that its charging partners are Z.E. Ready certified, to ensure that both wall box and installation are compatible with the Renault electric vehicle that you choose. In Australia, JetCharge carries the Z.E. Ready certification; for more information about Jetcharge visit their website.

The Renault Z.E. vehicles use lithium-ion batteries, offering great performance. It is very simple to charge, even when it is fully discharged. It can also be recycled at the end of its life

How much does it cost to run?

Every kilometre you cover is cheaper in a Z.E. than in a combustion engine vehicle. The savings you achieve depend on your electricity rate, but fully charging Kangoo Z.E. could cost from as little as $3, while ZOE can achieve a full charge from $8. Maintenance: With no moving parts in the engine, vehicle maintenance is also substantially less than an equivalent petrol or diesel powered vehicle.

Why can’t Twizy be commercialised in Australia?

Twizy is categorised as a ‘quadricycle’ and as such does not fit within the existing Australian vehicle categories. We’ll keep you updated on this if anything changes.

Does payload affect the range of the vehicles?

Payload has a nominal effect on the vehicle’s range. The driver’s driving style will have a much greater impact on the range of the vehicle.
