STILL LOVING THE 22KWH RENAULT ZOE

Today I took delivery of my second ZOE, following the end of my 2 year PCP with my first. This time I opted for Neptune Grey, which I must say really suits the shape of the car and perhaps makes it look a little more sporty.

After weighing up my ZOE options (New ZE40 vs Older 22kWh) I decided to stick with the older model. I explain the pro’s of doing this in my blog ‘why you should consider a used electric car’

Knowing exactly what to expect with the car made ordering it for delivery a perfect choice for me, It was a simple swap as they arranged to take away my end of contract ZOE at the same time. The price difference was a bit higher than my previous contract – I was one of the lucky few in 2015 who managed to get a stonking low deposit low monthly cost deal. But with all things considered this used ZOE on a 2 year contract still worked out a better cost option than going back to regular fuel.

With this used electric car I still benefit from free city parking, no road tax, much cheaper running costs, 2 years of warranty remaining on the car, free roadside assistance and better features than I would get with most regular fuel cars; plus I’m recycling by opting for a used electric car.

All in all I’m very happy with my second (new to me but used) Renault ZOE 22kWh.

    Jo,

    I read your post and I agree completely! I handed mine back at the end of PCP, and got a used one – a Zoe ‘i’ this time, so no battery rental. I even ended up saving enough money on monthly payments to replace my wife’s noisy twelve year old diesel car with a lovely blue Zoe!

    I think when prices of the Zoe 40 go down I’ll get one of those second hand. And I doubt I’ll ever buy another ICE car!

    Hi. So am I. But, in January 2017, I wrote to RCI re retro fitting of the upgrade battery. Then, they said this option would be available within a few months and would cost £3,100.
    This January I phoned them to ask what the present situation was and they said that this option is not at present available in the UK though it is being trialled in one or two European countries.
    Pity. I think I’ll either stick with my present Zoe (bought in December 2013) for a while or go for a new Zoe 40 – that’s when they become available again (see my other post re non-availability of new Zoes till the summer because the French Government has ordered 25,000 new Zoes – just like that.)
    Funny times.
