Am I missing something? it appears to say only the Kangoo is coming to Australia.

Nice to see that since noone else is offering an EV cargo vehicle here.

I'm guessing they have put them out on the website to see just how much interest there is before they commit to anything. The Zoe could be a good fit for the local market. Chameleon charger makes the best of whatever juice you can get, and the range is pretty good - ~160km in real world conditions is achievable pretty reliably. Also, in Europe it's been very sensibly priced for full battery ownership.

I hope they bring the 43kw Rapid charge model over though, then it is a true chameleon charger :)

They are slowly phasing out the 43Kw onboard charging.

Too many issues with lower charging currents......apparently...

I have been told Renault are closely evaluation the EV market in Australia again. I wouldn't be surprised to see them introduce the Kangoo and/or Zoe to our market in the next few years. Hopefully with the push by Tesla, Hyundai, Nissan and BMW this will force their hand. I strongly believe the Renault EV's would be very well received...fingers crossed

Rather than crossing my fingers, I registered interest:
http://www.renault.com.au/vehicles/futu ... s/register
We have a diesel VW Golf that I'd love to replace with a pure EV if we can get something with "good enough" range. For me that the return distance from home to the airport + a "safe" margin, around 120km range + allowance for battery fade over a few years: we don't like to change cars as often as some. Now, if they had a fast charger at the Perth Airport, I could just about get there in battery mode with our Outlander PHEV.

So, Auto Manufacturers, whoever brings in a "nice", reasonably compact vehicle with 200+ km range for a "fair" price (ie allowing a "fair" margin for recouping R&D) gets my money Image . The Tesla 3 is looking the best bet at present.

Im excited about the Zoe finally being available too. So many cars are going to come, going to come, and then dont. We drive an Outlander PHEV every day. Its perfect for our longer camping trips and shorter local stuff but I drive about 100km round trip to work and the PHEV battery just wont and I cant get a plug in during the day at work. We bought a Prius C, which is pretty low consumption but I was planning to add more batteries and make some mods to drive pure electric. Maybe I dont have to now. Just hope the promise of the Zoe turns into actual cars arriving in the car yards for sale.

Renault Australia has confirmed it will import both the pure-electric ZOE supermini and Kangoo ZE van to Australian businesses and governmental organisations.

The updated long-range ZOE, which was introduced back in late 2016 in Europe, will be available here in two grades priced either side of $45,000, and the French car-maker has also confirmed it will offer local fleet — and potentially private — buyers a pure-electric version of the Kangoo Maxi for around the same price

Both are set to land in the “next couple of months”, says Renault, and will also be available to private buyers if there’s demand.

Renault Kangoo Maxi ZE — $45,990
Renault Zoe Life — $42,470
Renault Zoe Intens — $45,870

Great news, but... why limit sales to businesses only??? What's stopping them from selling to anyone who wants to stump up the readies? Do they ever limit sales of any of their fossil-fuelled models to any subset of the population?

I don't think the 2010 imiev was available for sale to anyone, it was only available as a 3 year lease.
