i hope these arent as prone to failing battery packs as the one my sister had, Two packs needed in its first 3 year lease , when the third pack died mid term on its 2nd three year lease sis had a Hell of a time getting renault to do Anything with it.

French + electric car following that , No way
esp as the battery pack looks to be the Same spec as the last one fitted to sis's Zoe

I was hoping for a complete new model rather than a facelift.

I went down to try and buy one of these when they first came out... the local garage had zero (no pun intended) of trying to sell me one...

Wouldn't even let me have a rest drive in one...

Money went on a Citigo instead...

I really hope the battery lease still isn't a thing!? I had a gen one for 3.5 years, no one would buy it off me at the end of term... not even Renault!

I do love how the packs are getting bigger and cheaper, I will give it another couple of years before I have another leccy car.

Yeah its not much of a New Zöe is it?

Looks just like the last one to the untrained observer.

Unlike the Honda e which stands out on its own (although it could do with a bit more range)

Although you know the Honda will just keep going and going and going.
