I think the ZOE looks quite sharp in black colour. Thanks for sharing the photos.

Well, good looks is one part, but with electric cars you should watch energy consumption with high priority.

Black cars heat up more than white cars which means you need more energy for air condition.

That's why I will order my Zoe in white (although I don't like white cars too much).

Same with the wheels. There is no energy optimized 17", so I will stay with the 16".

Just my 2 cents

You are right, but I don't need maximum range, so I'll spend some 5km range for a good look.
Anyway in my area in germany isn't that much Sun.

RE: ZOE AMI Leipzig 2012

I'm from Denmark, and heating of the cabin isn't really an issue here either - therefore I've gone for a black with black interior...
I'm not really sure about th 16/17" wheels though - I think I'll go for the standard 16" and maybe swap for some other lightweight alloys later - anybody said "OZ"?
There might be a problem with the special tyres, though. When I had the VW Lupo TDI 3L (2001-2009) I noticed that the energy optimized tyres where badly understeering and there were some braking issues as well. Hopefully that's different with the Michelins...

I will go for the 17" rims. I am often cornering and guess the special tyres wouldn't be that good in it. Additionally I think the price will be high due to less customers.

Naw, that's a general problem. Rolling resistance and grip are not going well together.

But that's ok for me, for me this is a city car, not a racer. Rolling resistance is a major energy waster when going city speeds...

What I'm still missing is a low rolling resistance winter tire (that's something that doesn't match either on the physics side...) - we tend to have some noticable amount of snow as well as sun.
