Home and Destination Charging (0 -> 100%)

Charging is possible by using a regular wall plug or a charging station. Public charging is always done through a charging station. How fast the EV can charge depends on the charging station (EVSE) used and the maximum charging capacity of the EV. The table below shows all possible options for charging the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40. Each option shows how fast the battery can be charged from empty to full.

Type 2 (Mennekes - IEC 62196)
Charging Point Max. Power Power Time Rate
Wall Plug (2.3 kW) 230V / 1x10A 2.3 kW 19 hours 7 mph
1-phase 16A (3.7 kW) 230V / 1x16A 3.7 kW 11h45m 12 mph
1-phase 32A (7.4 kW) 230V / 1x32A 7.4 kW 6 hours 24 mph
3-phase 16A (11 kW) 230V / 3x16A 11 kW 4 hours 35 mph
3-phase 32A (22 kW) 230V / 3x32A 22 kW 2 hours 71 mph

Rapid Charging (10 -> 80%)

Rapid charging enables longer journeys by adding as much range as possible in the shortest amount of time. Charging power will decrease significantly after 80% state-of-charge has been reached. A typical rapid charge therefore rarely exceeds 80% SoC. The rapid charge rate of an EV depends on the charger used and the maximum charging power the EV can handle. The table below shows all details for rapid charging the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40.

  • Max. Power: maximum charging power the vehicle can use
  • Avg. Power: average charging power over a session from 10% to 80%

All about the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40

Pricing

The Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 has an On The Road Price (OTR) of £29,270. The OTR Price includes VAT, first year of VED, vehicle first registration fee, number plates and delivery. The Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 is eligible for the Plug-In Car Grant (PICG) of £4,500. The grant will be applied to the final invoice price of the car. The OTR Price including the PICG for the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 is £24,770.

Drivetrain and Performance

The Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 is a full electric vehicle (BEV). The maximum power of the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 is 65 kW (87 hp). The maximum torque is 162 lb-ft. The Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 is front wheel drive and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 13.5 seconds. The top speed is 84 mph.

Battery and Charging

The battery of the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 has a total capacity of 41 kWh. The usable capacity is 37 kWh (estimate). A range of about 140 miles is achievable on a fully charged battery. The actual range will however depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style.

For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in a range of around 100 mi. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the range to around 215 mi.

Charging is done using a Type 2 connector and the on-board charger has a maximum power of 22 kW. This charges a fully depleted battery back to full in around 2 hours. However, a 3-phase grid connection is needed to achieve this. The majority of homes and charge points currently do not have this connection. In most cases the maximum charging power will be 7.4 kW, allowing for a charge time of 6 hours and a charge rate of 24 mph. Charging the car using a regular wall plug will take around 19 hours.

Rapid charging is possible through a Type 2 connection. The maximum rapid charge power is 43 kW. The battery can't be charged continuously at this power. In an average rapid charge session the average charge power will be around 33 kW. This charges the battery from 10% to 80% in around 50 minutes. A rapid charge like this will add about 95 miles of range.

Energy Consumption

The combined (motorway and city) energy consumption of the Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 is about 260 Wh per mile. By comparison, this energy consumption is the equivalent of a fuel consumption of 153 mpg in a traditional petrol car.

The actual energy consumption will depend on several factors including climate, terrain, use of climate control systems and driving style. For example: sustaining high speeds in cold weather could result in an energy use of around 370 Wh per mile. However, driving at low speeds in mild weather will increase the efficiency to about 170 Wh per mile.

CO2 Emission

The Renault Zoe Q90 ZE40 emits no CO2 during driving. This only includes direct emissions from the vehicle itself. The energy needed to charge the battery might have been (partly) generated by the use of fossil fuels. Vehicles with an internal combustion engine will always emit CO2 during driving. Additionally, CO2 is emitted during the production and transport of fossil fuels.
