Current Zoe’s drivers are being asked by email to say how much are they willing to pay to get a bigger battery that will give a 300 km real range.
Renault also wants to know if clients prefer to pay for the battery exchange with a one time fee or by a monthly battery lease increase.
The last question is if clients are willing to pay 5.000 € for the battery exchange. This seems excessive since they will have to continue to pay the
scam monthly battery lease forever and that LG Chem batteries have one of the lowest price per kWh in the world.
Why doesn’t Renault asks how much clients are willing to pay to own the battery and end the lifetime lease?!
This poll is both good and bad news.
The good is that Renault actually has intentions of making the new 40-44 kWh battery compatible and available for older Zoes.
The bad is that they don’t know yet what the plan is. But making own the battery near impossible and make clients slaves to battery lease payments to RCI seems already decided.
It’s a good time to see this very informative lecture again.
