Renault Zoe, the much awaited EV in a world where people are going green with EVs, has broken the record for longest distance driven in 24 hours by an electric car.
It managed to cover 1600 kilometers (994.19 miles) under controlled conditions on a closed circuit, surpassing the previous record of 1241 km (776 miles).
The nominal range per charge of this EV is 210 km (130 miles) under the NEDC cycle. That means the car did not cover the stretch on a single charge; it was fast charged 9 times during the journey.
So you can now consider the possibility of taking an EV for longer trips with the help of fast charging.
Zoe can be charged at three speeds: standard charging using a wallbox at home takes from six to nine hours, accelerated charging takes one hour and fast charging takes just 30 minutes.
Well, refueling a gasoline or diesel vehicle does not consume half as much of your time as fast charging a Zoe. But you can make use of the time for stretching your legs and relaxing, and doing your part to control pollution.
With a new record to boast about, Renault Zoe will be launched inFrance this fall.
