    Hi
    I am looking at purchasing a new Zoe. Have been to the dealers and test driven, and all is good. However the dealers were useless with actually knowing anything! So I have some questions please:
    – I understand the battery is leased for 4 years. What happens after that?
    – if battery goes below 75% and a new type of battery is out, do you get a new battery?
    – are there another costs I’m missing (insurance, battery lease & charging. No road tax?)

    Sorry I’m very new to all this!

    Is there anything else you think is important for me to know?

    I will be buying car outright if that makes any difference.

    Many thanks

    Stacey

    Hi Stacey 99% of any questions you have are on my Youtube Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCA5BxqNslvqgVl61NvRTLjQ

    – I understand the battery is leased for 4 years. What happens after that?
    Renault battery lease is renewed every 3 years, over and over and over till you sell it so nothing happens.

    – if battery goes below 75% and a new type of battery is out, do you get a new battery?
    The paperwork says your get a battery with at least 75% meaning they could repair existing one, there’s a tiny chance you might be offerd a new 40kwh pack as a small cost however NO ONE has got even NEAR the replacement %

    – are there another costs I’m missing (insurance, battery lease & charging. No road tax?)
    only costs are Insurance, Lease cost, charging, servicing.

    Thanks Nick. That’s very helpful. I have had a quick look at your YouTube channel and there is lots of good info. Just one thing…..you mention you can get them new for about £12,800. Can you point me in the right direction as I’m being quoted much more!

    Many thanks

    Unfortunately not. They claim that car is sold and offer a much higher price. Not sure how genuine the advert is as it’s been there many days after they told me it’s gone! Thanks anyway

    Lithium batteries come in 4 v.The Zoe battery has many modules connected in series to give you the final 400 v traction battery.
    You won’t get a brand new battery, but faulty modules will be replaced.
    I’ve had two Zoe over 6 years and never had a battery problem, except getting a software update.
    You’ll find you totally change your driving style in order to go easy on the battery.Renault won’t give you an upgrade to a larger battery, I never needed one.Bear in mind, in Winter the output will fall by 20% due to the cold.Good luck, go for it.
