I want one! In lieu of that, in Europe one can buy the GT line R135 ZE50 Zoe. Sadly we will not see that (or even the standard ZE50) here any time soon. :-(

Mind-you, whilst the R135 Zoe has a 0 - 100 time about 2 seconds faster than a standard Zoe (9.5 vs 11.4) it is still more than 2 seconds slower than my Kona!

Cheers

Bryce,

Correct me if I’m wrong but the 11.4 second to 100km/h is the Zoe R110 that never came to Australia. The one in Australia is the R90 with 13.5 seconds to 100km/h. At least that is what the spec says on all of the CarSales ads.
But as Renault Geelong where going to call YOU about some technical questions I had, they could have easily put the wrong specs on CarSales...

That's an interesting Q: yes, the R90 is 13.5 sec 0 - 100 and the AEVA Zoe Fact Sheet lists that 13.5 sec, as the 2017 ones were all R90. (Which I should have remembered re my post above, given I wrote the Fact Sheet!).
... so I have got my number wrong in the post above. BUT you also triggered my memory re they stopped selling the R90 in the UK (Right Hand Drive) market well before the April 2019 build-date batch that is currently being run out here. By that stage, only the Q90 and the R110 were sold in the UK. (The Q90 took up to 43kW AC charge. They did not come to Australia).

Being RHD, perhaps the 2019 batch here are UK spec and actually R110! Will check out our 2019 Zoe this evening ...

Cheers
