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.
AC & DC
With hot hatch performance, five-doors, five-passenger body shell and DC fast charging as standard, the Zoe can easily be the only car in a household.
The Renault Zoe is equipped with a single Type 2 Mennekes charger port. The Type 2 Mennekes connector is what is typically used at home and at destination chargers. Note, Renault doesn't supply the car with an EVSE/Charger, only a charge cable.

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
If your Renault Zoe ZE electric car has a type 1 or J1772 charge port then you're all set. Simply plug in your car and start charging up!
All Type 1 or J1772 chargers have a cable attached so there's no need to adapt or plug in any EV charger adaptors or electric car cables.
How to charge your Renault Zoe ZE from a public Type 2 Mennekes charging station
The Type 2 to type 1 cable will charge your Renault Zoe ZE up to 3.3kw or 20 km for every hour of charge, an essential cable for every Type 1 or J1772 vehicle to enable safe and secure charging from public ‘Universal’ charge points.
There is a trend for public electric car charge points to be universal or socketed; this means the point has no in-built cable. 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 BYO cable chargers.
