Renault offers free daily charge to all EV owners for one hour

Renault will start to distribute in France a total of 372 deliveries. These customers will have the opportunity to purchase them starting with the September 30th this year. All owners of electric vehicles will receive a free 1-hour charge per day, which is something new in this domain. Each dealership will be equipped with a free 1-hour charge per day. All dealerships will be equipped with fast-charge terminals that will come in very handy. These will be able to be found on the outdoor parking lots, so customers should have no worries what so ever. 875 fast-charge stations will be available as an alternative to private stations both at work and at home. Owners will be able use them during working hours, no matter the car brand, but the cars will need to have three type 3 connectors for EVs. To be absolutely sure that the network works, the carmaker offered two Renault Zoe electric vehicles to take a trip from Paris to La Rochelle on the Atlantic coast of France. All together, the models will be travelling for 477 km. The cars started their journey on the 18th of September and the drivers charged the batteries at the Renault dealerships in Les Herbiers, Chartres and also Chinon. Together with Renault, the local authorities have also made a contribution and also several private companies like for example, E. Leclerc chain of hypermarkets. All of them have worked on developing EV charging infrastructure which is in fact a key prerequisite for the development of electric mobility. In the same category we also have to mention the battery range. We do have to appreciate the initiative and to admit that this is a very good idea. For sure, a lot of EV owners are grateful and the future ones now feel more confident when deciding in buying an electric vehicle.
