    Haven't been following the Zoe closely since it's not available in the US, but do you still have to rent the battery or can you buy it outright now?

    Both options are available. It's shown in the table in that article.

    There's a rumour that Nissan are about to launch a rebranded version in other markets as well.

    Any chance this might get rebadged and sold as the long-rumored Nissan Leaf 2? The Zoe looks much better than its cousin the Leaf.

    Note, NEDC. As per the article even Renault admits real world range is significantly less.

    I wonder why Europe keeps to a standard that's dramatically off. If I were a consumer I'd be pissed.

    It's a segment smaller than the Leaf, so any rebadge would be another model for sure. Still, the fact they can fit 41 kWh in it bodes well for the next Leaf.

    Yeah NEDC is nonsense and is known to be for over a decade. EVs are really highlighting this now and forcing the issue for change. I noted Opel are not using it for the Ampera-e.
