As an Official Partner of Renault, We Will Show You How to Charge Your Renault ZOE Easily and Flexibly Using Your Own Charging Station at Home or a Public Charging Station.

Charging Your Renault ZOE at Home

Charge at Home with 22 kW and Reach Full Charge in 1.5 hours

The Renault ZOE can be charged with a charging power of up to 22 kW using the charging station at home. With a battery capacity of 22 kWh, you will reach full electric charge in around 1.5 hours. According to Renault, the ZOE has a realistic range of 115 – 170 km, depending on how you drive, the time of year, and an electric top speed of up to 135 km/h. According to NEDC you can drive up to 240 km on a single charge. Charging is performed using a type 2 plug and can be done via a mode 2 charging cable connected to an individually fused domestic socket with 2.3 kW. For safety reasons, you should avoid doing this in the long term. Your socket will be under full strain for 10 hours when charging from the domestic socket. Using the charging station, you can charge your Renault ZOE not only safely but also 6.5 times as fast as with a regular domestic socket.


Renault has defined its own standard when it comes to charging Renault electric cars with Z.E. Ready. Therefore, the charging station used must be installed according to these stipulations and must be able to take all necessary security aspects into consideration. In our installation tips section, you can learn more about the technical details. You can also find specific installation notes for Z.E. READY in the KEBA installation handbook (page 14).

What Do I Need a Charging Station for?

With a charging station for your Renault Zoe, you can charge your car not only quickly and efficiently (saving up to 8 hours of time) but also safely and intelligently. Read our blog entry on “Why Do I actually Need a Charging Station?” to find out what risks are posed by charging from a domestic socket and what advantages charging your Renault Zoe via a charging station can have for you. We have also compiled an overview of what you need to be aware of for the safe installation of a charging station.

Charging Your Renault ZOE When Out and About

Die Herausforderung besteht im Moment allerdings noch darin, dass das Laden ohne vorhergehende Anmeldung beim entsprechenden Ladesäulenanbieter nicht möglich ist. Öffentlich Laden muss daher gut geplant sein.

Flexible charging anywhere at any CEE industrial or domestic socket

With a mobile charging station and the matching adapters you can charge everywhere with a charging power of 2.3 kW at a domestic power socket, and up to a charging power of 22 kW at a 32 A CEE industrial socket. With a mobile charging station you are less dependent on public charging stations, which makes mobile charging stations the perfect companion on the road.


Public Charging Stations with Type 2 Socket or Type 2 Charging Cable

When out and about, the Renault ZOE can be charged at all public charging stations equipped with a type 2 charging cable with a charging power up to 22 kW. The latest generation of the Renault ZOE is no longer available with a CHAMELEON® CHARGER (charging power up to 43 kW (three-phase)). At the moment, it is still a problem that most charging station providers won’t let you charge at their facilities without registering in advance. Charging in public must therefore be planned properly.
