    The My Renault Zoe website is a personal blog, not officially endorsed by Renault. I’m a big fan of electric cars and am on the waiting list for a Ren

    Congratulations on a clever website name!
    I’m waiting for Zoe as well, and hope Renault can deliver on all its promises. I also believe Zoe will be a gamechanger, shifting money we spend on gasoline and auto repairs from fossil technology to development of new and better technology. If you order your Zoe at the end of the Paris motor show, I will be able to track your experiences before I order my Zoe in 2013, since it will go on sale in Slovenia later that year.

    Mitja – thanks for taking the time to post! With current delays I’m wondering if I won’t get my Zoe before some time in 2013.

    Have you encountered any information on details of battery-lease. As far as I know, the 80€ lease covers only 12000km per year. Probably it means, that I should calculate 160€ per month since I make 25000km per year.

    Mitja,

    Renault haven’t yet officially given full details of the Zoe’s battery lease options. However, I don’t think 25000km per year would cost twice as much as 12000km per year – a good (though approximate) guide is probably the data we already have for the Fluence Z.E. where 25000km on a 36 month contract costs just 128 euro per month:

    I’d say high mileage drivers actually do pretty well in this scheme.

    Thanks for explicit answer. I can calculate my expenses math now a bit more.
    I imagine I should calculate a full insurance cost for my future zoe as well-especially insurance regarding theft. Let’s say my car gets stolen-Renault would probably want full price of the battery back.

    Mitja,

    It looks like it might be even cheaper than I suggested. See this link – it has 20000km at just 102 euro!

    Yes, the rent is really something anybody can afford, when compared to fuel cost. There’s also some information, that ZOE will have different-better battery pack in 2014, so renting is a wise thing to do.

    Have you heard Z.E. voice.

    It seems somewhat out of space, but when I imagine a city without roaring of fuel driven cars, this sound actually tries to be pleasant to my ears.

    Yes, I’ve written about both:

    Longer range battery pack
