Just like any previous major innovation, electric mobility has its share of doubters. And these doubters sometimes spread wrong ideas. We picked a few of the most common misconceptions, like these, for instance: “No way I’m buying a car if I have to charge it every 50 kilometers…”, “Electric cars are so expensive!”, “Renting the battery is not easy on the wallet…”
So we decided to stop this cycle and bring you facts, so you could decide if electric mobility fits your lifestyle. A new dedicated section of the Renault-Ze.com website is at your disposal.
The wall of misconceptions will allow you to see all of the most common rumours and our answers. Detailed facts about electric mobility and surprising videos will come kick these ideas out of the way!
If you have extra questions, feel free to ask! Also, please share this space with your friends. We will only be able to fight these misconceptions if we have you by our side.
