I think the main advantage of the Renault Zoe R90 is that it has an impressive range of 200km (in very cold weather) to 300km (in summer). I didn't realise there would be such a difference in range depending on whether the car is run in winter or summer, but these are the figures quoted by Renault. Apparently, the NEDC range is a maximum of 250 miles, but for practical running purposes this is reduced (by Renault) to 186 miles (300km).
An Auckland winter won't be anything like a French winter.....so anyone in the North Island won't have too much to worry about.....and the maybe the winter issue might apply to inland parts of the South Island where they see snow for extended periods and low temperatures.
But few inhabited places in NZ see tempt below -10C more than a handful of days in a year.
