[From 5 January] I heard the news from Renault in about the middle of December that there were just 11 of the Renault ZOE ‘Dynamique Nav’ still in ‘stock’, i.e. available to sell across the UK dealer network or in Renault’s south coast import yard. That is the 2015 model of the ZOE, the one … Continue reading The End of an Era (Renault ZOE 2015)
Enthused by the technology and the idea of being an everyday Eco Warrior, I traded petrol for electric and became part of the EV revolution – despite not being able to charge my car at home! Yes that’s right … I charge my car publicly all the time! The fact I don’t have an electric … Continue reading How an electric car can work without a home charge point

A Happy New Year for 2017 to everyone at MyRenaultZOE.com, particularly forum members! With the release of the new long-range ZE40 model it looks like being a watershed year for the ZOE.

There was just about enough charge to get back home but I called in to Newport Pagnell services for a 10 minute top-up rather than take a chance . Since my i3 was damaged in an … Continue reading Renault ZOE from eCar Club

I have struggled recently to put as much time into this website as I used to (partly through my work at Fuel Included), and as a result it started to get rather slow and also began to look a bit neglected. For that I apologise to all the regulars here. My New Year’s resolution is … Continue reading New Year’s Resolution
Joyeux Noël (actually Joyeux Zoël!) and Happy Christmas to everyone in the Renault ZOE and general electric vehicle community.
Early models of the Renault ZOE would quite often encounter problems with charging at public charging points and would show a message saying “Battery Charging Impossible” (BCI). The ZOE electronics were updated at about the time the new R240 version of the ZOE entered production to fix this issue – however, I’ve learned it can … Continue reading Renault ZOE: Battery Charging Impossible (BCI)
Culture Shock With apparently ever-increasing globalisation most of us have an expectation that we can travel to other Western countries and find facilities and a culture similar to our own – after all, a McDonald’s Big Mac bought in Paris is recognisably the same as one from New York. Occasionally, though, we find things to … Continue reading How Far Behind is the US in General, and Disney in Particular?
