The official results have now been posted here. Some impressive numbers. The winner of the most efficient production small car is the Renault Zoe which returned an amazing 129 Wh/km (which is 208Wh/mile). The Twizy wouldn’t qualify for this event since it couldn’t manage the full 63 miles, or achieve the average speed the rules require, but on our trip up to the Electric Beacons ZE Tour event yesterday, our two Twizys (one with doors, one without) managed 85 Wh/km (138Wh/mile) on the round trip of about 20 miles. It’s a bit of a climb up, which affects consumption a bit, but we did much better on the way back! However, given their relative weights and crew complements, and the much higher wind resistance, the Zoe is clearly an impressive engineering achievement.
There was a Zoe at our event, although it wasn’t available for test driving. It’s quite large, and well streamlined, and it looks like it might have been designed as an EV - there weren’t any obvious intrusions into the cabin for the batteries, for example. I hope it sells well.
