It seems to me that the Zoe is significantly more EV for the money than has been available up to now. Specifically, the greater range (than leaf or i), and faster charging will provide more utility, at a low, low price. The heat pump, 43kW charger, energy efficient body/chassis and tires are all top notch.

Geneva 2012: the new Renault Zoe - BBC Top Gear
In Geneva Zoe had its world premiere and the Model S its European premiere.
So far Model S has received much less media coverage and some newspaper say that the Zoe was the only interesting EV on the show.....
I just read that in a Top Gear publication!?!?EV objectors tend to say that we shouldn't forget the CO2 emissions of power stations. True. For the Zoe on Europe-wide energy generation mix, that equates to a well-to-wheel figure of 62g/km of CO2. That's better than any hybrid or diesel, and the headline figures for those cars are only fuel-station-to-wheel, not well-to-wheel.
Oh wait, it's Paul Horrell, the guy that gets it - the guy that gave the Roadster a good review in the mag 4 years ago.
First confirmation of the acceleration. It's way longer than what was quoted for the Zoe Preview - in fact it looks suspiciously like journalists were quoting 0-60kph as mph for that prototype car.
Huum I speak french, that's close, but not close enough

So is this official that the Zoe will be able to charge with a mennekes mode 3 charging point ( just spotted one in my favorite shopping center )?
