Until now buying a Renault’s electric car in Portugal and avoiding the lifelong battery lease was a difficult task. You had to contact many dealers. Some would sell the battery for 7.000 € (8.610 € with Portuguese VAT included), but most didn’t even know it was possible.
Now it’s easier, just contact ZEEV and they’ll be happy to sell you a complete Zoe.
You still can’t order one online from Renault’s website. Renault will only officially start selling the batteries in 3 months, or a little sooner for the Twizy to take advantage of the summer time.
It’s better late than never, but Renault shouldn’t had wait so long. Now with many alternatives arriving with better range, the Zoe has to get a price cut. Yet I’m happy to see a light at the end of the tunnel.
