In line with it’s ‘‘sister’’ the Nissan Leaf, it has been announced by Renault that the new Zoe will have its range doubled by 2017 with a brand new design inside out. Apart from affecting the sales of current Zoe as some people will probably prefer to wait until the new model arrives, some questions were raised by the current owners of Zoe and the possibility of upgrading to the new batteries as when the current one reach the maximum 75% charge.
It is only speculation but it seems that the new designed battery will not fit the current model and that Renault will put in place a plan to buy back the first Zoe (also to encourage people to buy the Zoe until 2017) if customers decide to purchase the newly designed model.
The Twizy comes into mind and the question about a new Twizy by 2017 and if not will we be able to upgrade the battery pack to extend the range under the battery lease agreement?
Hope you can understand me as my English is not always understandable… been French!
