Renault Zoe ZE EV charging

Compact, zippy and not just for urban EV driving

 

Introduced to Australia and NZ in 2017, this was the first new electric car to be sold in Australia since the BMW i3. With an up to 41kWh battery the Zoe is one of the best value new EVs in Australia and NZ, and, as such, has created a real buzz around it as well as some dedicated enthusiasts who use it for both work and play.​

 

Powered by an 66-kilowatt AC synchronous motor functioning on energy stored in a lithium-ion battery pack, the Zoe boasts  approximately 300km real world driving range.

How to charge your Renault Zoe ZE in public and at home

As EV drivers ourselves, we know that​ being able to easily and quickly access efficient charging is vital to a great EV experience.​ Because the Zoe doesn't come with charging options, speak to us about home and/or office EV charging, including:

Myenergi Zappi - easily our most popular electric vehicle charging unit, the Zappi uses your self-generated solar power and directs it to your EV, rather than the grid. Meaning your EV is not only driving on sunshine, but that you're using all your power onsite, rather than feeding it back to the grid.

ChargeAmps HALO - stylish and sleek, this Swedish-designed wall charging unit has smart software, a charging cable and is made from hardwearing and recycled aluminium.

How to charge your Renault Zoe ZE from a public J1772 Type 1 electric car charger 

For a long time, J1772 / Type 1 connectors have been the norm for public electric car chargers like ChargePoint. The issue for new car owners is there are stil many charging stations which use the J1772 standard which you cannot natively take advantage of.

The answer is this incredibly useful J1772 to Mennekes adapter cable. This allows you to connect to J1772 charging station; simply insert the J1772 plug to charge at up to 7.6kw or 30-40 kms of range per hour. Have a look at Plugshare map pic as an example of just how many J1772 charging stations available in your area!

How to charge your Renault Zoe ZE from a public Type 2 Mennekes charging station

Most modern type 2 public ev charging stations are untethered meaning you will need to BYO cable to charge your car.  In this case you will need type 2 to type 2  cable to enable safe and secure charging from public ‘Universal’ charge points. 

 

The result is reduced maintenance and damage, as well as reduced liability for the owner of the station. If there is no permanently cable attached to the charger then there is less risk of it being driven over or generally being abused. Think air hose in a servo.  They are otherwise known as universal or untethered chargers.
