    Good starting points. If you don’t mind adding you can select Reverse not just Drive. The home charging for myself is a lot different to what you describe might be bat to say refer to the guidance provided. You omit the wealth of RFID cards or apps required for public charging. Might be also worth pointing out where some such as Ecotricity shut off automatically after 30 minutes and more importantly the cost. Battery rental versus ownership . What to do if you want to end PCP or sell the car. Finally the range and how it varies during the seasons and style of driving. Oh and ECO mode plus the two models (at least) Q210 and R240 and the fact most delearships when you order haven’t a clue the 5-6 months you have to wait for it. That said it is a superb car.

    All of that is planned for the longer version.



    I have always found it odd, that in order to ensure that that air con is off,you have to push the button, thereby bringing the red light on.Kind of back to front,confusing and obviously if you haven’t selected the car screen you don’t know you are using a considerable amount of power with ac.It has also been noted, that in order to bring the heating on quickly in winter, the car should initially be out of Eco. Its a fabulous vehicle, pity the dealerships and some in Renaullt are not fit for purpose. Good luck, your a brave man.



    Hi, could you give a bit more of the really basic information – no one else does!

    I’m about to use a car club Zoe for the first time this week. The last time I drove an automatic was a 4.1L Ford Falcon in Australia 20 years ago. So what should I do at a junction in busy traffic? Should I stay in D, or go to N or P? Should I sit with the brake pedal pressed at a junction? And how should I pull away?

    Generally you mention the P and the D. What’s the purpose of N? Does that have any meaning in an EV? (i.e. is there no ‘creep’ in N)?



    Trevor Larkum

    mattb67, I wouldn’t worry about it. EVs are very easy to drive, you can leave it in D the whole time when not parked if you want to, just keep your foot on the brake. N has no useful purpose that I found.
