Renault: When we advertised that you could use our planet-healing car for 130-mile trips, we forgot to mention that in cold weather, you might have to walk the last 70 miles

Renault reveal electric car Zoe can only achieve a range of 60 miles in cold weather and 90 miles in warmer climates
British drivers are not expected to warm to the new Renault Zoe, an all-electric city car, after Renault today revealed it can only achieve 60 miles in cold weather and 90 miles in normal conditions.

While its advertised range is 130 miles, in the real world, suburban use will take its toll on that figure.

These types of technology have to embraced and will be corrected as we use them- Hydrogen Cars should be underway as well for zero emissions. My generation has plans for years and years of life- the use of oil has to stop especailly when basic chemistry and the first element Hydrgen have all the answers.
