    Even more, the Zoé comes with 43 kW charge as standard. On the contrary, in the Smart you should pay about 4.000 euro for the 22 kW option :/

    Also, I will rarely need 4 seats, and my daily commute is around 25 miles, so I'm questioning if I should even be holding out for the Zoe... Would love to hear if anyone has anyone had any thoughts on this.
    I think a journalist mixed up 0-60 km/h with 0-60 mph in 8 seconds and the rest just copied. I have certainly seen the km/h figure in French literature. I've also seen 0-100 km/h in 13 seconds.

    Regarding the Smart, I know someone that was on the trial of the previous one last year, has a 50 mile commute and he said he will definitely be getting the new one.

    Here's an article (in French) discussing the cable issue :
    Renault Zoé - En panne de prise - Actualités - L'Automobile Magazine
    I can´t believe that the efficiency at 2kW is 50%. I think Renaut want to sell Schneider Wallbox in France and that is the reason for these rumors.

    The best would still be to use 3-phase for charging and you can even go down to 3-phase 10A or so if your connection demands that.

    Maybe not 50%, but close to it. If you remember, our forum mate from Spain, Ritxi (who has a Fluence Z.E.) posted their energy comsuption, both from the on board computer of the car and from the grid. The results differ a lot when rechargig at 10 A or 16 A:

    Consumos Fluence

    Junio y Julio: 3096 km y recarga con EVSE opcional 10A
    * Consumo ordenador coche: 449 kWh, consumo medio 14,5 kWh/100 km, coste 1,30 €/100 km
    * Consumo de la red: 656 kWh, consumo medio real 21,2 kWh/100 km, coste real 1,91 €/100 km
    * Eficiencia recarga: 69%

    Septiembre y Octubre: 2677 km, recarga con wallbox Circutor 16A
    * Consumo ordenador coche: 419 kWh, consumo medio 15,6 kWh/100 km, coste 1,40 €/100 km
    * Consumo de la red: 492 kWh, consumo medio real 18,4 kWh/100 km, coste real 1,65 €/100 km
    * Eficiencia recarga: 85%

    Noviembre: 1837 km
    * Consumo ordenador coche: 314 kWh, consumo medio 17,1 kWh/100 km, coste: 1,53 €/100 km
    * Consumo de la red: 360 kWh, consumo medio real 19,6 kWh/100 km, coste real: 1,76 €/100 km
    * Eficiencia recarga: 87%
    Shifting from 10 A to 16 A rises the efficence up from 69% to 87%. The key factor is the battery cooling system: It's turned on during the whole charge, so the faster it is, the less it consums.

    Se debe al sistema de refrigeración de la batería. Cuando la tª es superior a 23ºC o la batería está templada porque has utilizado el coche unas horas antes, se pone en marcha el sistema consumiendo 1 kWh/h de media.

    Si estás cargando a poco más de 2 kW la eficiencia se queda en un tristisimo 50% y la recarga se puede alargar hasta 24 horas. Si recargas a 3,3 kW la eficiencia sube por encima del 65%.

    IMO the Fluence is a poor reference because the ZOE is completely different.

    Same goes for the Roadster. The sweetspot with the Roadster is 30 ~ 40A.

    So 87% isn't really that bad a 16A.

    The question is if Zoe has a Peltier system like Fluence ZE. It could be, but don't think so.

    in small batteries 22kw charging or 43kw charging does not make a big difference!

    Peltier?! What were they thinking?
