I picked my Renault Zoe up towards the end of February and have just clocked up the first thousand miles. So far so good, I've stopped driving it like it's made of glass and am now just treating it like any other car.
The weather has been pretty cold for the last month but the battery has settled at around 150 miles range. I've just received my OVO electric bill but haven't looked at it yet. I haven't bought any diesel for the other car this month so I'm not expecting any great shocks.
I had expected to use the EV as a daily runabout and to use my other car for longer journeys. Now that I've gone beyond the round trip range a couple of times, I've changed my mind as it's nowhere near as difficult as I'd imagined to recharge on the go. There's a bit of work to do to sign up to the various different charging systems but I can see myself using the Zoe for most journeys.
I know there are others on this forum who have had EVs for years and they're probably laughing at the new boy, but if you're thinking of getting one then all I can say is do it.
The downside? The Zoe is automatic so I've forgotten how to drive my other car! I stall it at junctions because I forget to use the clutch and I'm constantly in the wrong gear at roundabouts.
