I'm sure I heard that the Leaf has a resistive heater for the battery for really cold conditions.

I think that's an option, aimed mainly at the scandanavian market.

Hello Hello?
I hope that this post is still live.
What is the lowest rate that Zoe can charge at?
I wish to optimise charging by wind or solar (incl. mains as required), with a Zappi without other battery back up?
I do not have E7.
Thank you for answering me.

Charging with the granny cable supplied by Zoe, it's 3 kW on the mains. Interestingly, off the inverter (we are off grid) it seems to be less, about 2 kW. Not sure why.

If I charge Tesla off 13Amp the efficiency is considerably less than off the wall charger (16AMP I think?).  Although maybe I have only done 13AMp at friends with a long extension lead too ...

leghorn,

I believe the bottom end figure is circa 2.3kW or 10A. It is a figure I'd love to see written down somewhere by Renault.

Good Evening All,

Possibly a contender for the most utterly pointless use of paper? You still have to go online and go through the same process as when you have to pay!!!!

Regards

Richard

It is actually necessary as the DVLA have to know if the car is going to be used on the road or not for the next 12 months.  

BTW I would suggest you redact your address, reg no. and especially the reference number as, using that info, anyone could declare your car 'SORN' and also to potentially  clone your car with an identical Zoe.  sh*tfan

At least with a leccy car, one is likely to show how it is charged, so with limited range they are not so easily cloned and charged elsewhere, as it is for filling up an ICE car.  Not yet, anyway...

Someone had a sporty BMW cloned (well false number plates) and then they (low-life) drove through speed cameras at rediculous speeds.  At least it was about 150 miles away and he was in bed asleep at the time.  He still had to explain, when the summons came through, mind.

I believe there is a standard which requires the car to accept charging down to 1.4kW, this is a limit set in the ECO charging option of the Zappi and is not, as far as I am aware, dependent on what car is connected. It is possible to charge at lower rates but I'm unsure if the car manufacturers approve this.

Good Morning All,

That's the Zoe (a self charging EV following Robert Llewellyn's latest Fully Charged offering) nearly a year old now and due for its first service on Monday (yes Easter Monday???).

It went through 6000 miles on the way back from Aberdeen last night.

We've put 1928kW into it and it's running at 0.322kWh per mile or a mighty 0.014 a mile (ignoring the 301 per month PCP/ battery lease costs of course).

No problems at all in this time - I do hope I'm not going to regret stating this...

I can't remember if I posted this elsewhere but Zappi have confirmed the minimum charge level for the Zoe is 2kW.

Regards

Richard
