New 2020 Zoe announced

Post by doggy » Tue, 18 Jun 2019, 06:04

New Zoe announced for 2020. Adds 50kW DC charging as well as existing AC charging.

Larger motor (100kW) with more speed, torque and acceleration and range. This is the second power increase since Aus Zoes which are 2017 models.

52kW battery plus larger 10" screen.

Look at Elektrek for info.

Regds,
Dave

Looks good - my only real issue with the Zoe was a need for DC fast charging. But an extra 10 kWh will help add a good 40 km of range on the highway.

Given the first Zoe was released in 2011/2012 but we only got the ZE40 2017 model in 2018 and RA have said the R110 is not coming here any time soon, one might expect the R135 here in more than a few years. It is coming to Europe next year. Unless there is a dramatic uptake in Australian demand I cannot see that importers will be taking the risks and making the financial outlays.

Note that India has just announced that EVs in India will not have to pay any Registration Fees.

Australia must be the worst country in the developed (or maybe entire) world for EV incentives.

I cannot see the current Government doing anything, at least for another three years.

Eventually we will be like Cuba with all the old ICE vehicles.

Cheers,
Dave
