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.
