Renault ZOE - Battery Charging Remote Inhibition

Remote Battery Inhibition

EV World reports that the financial arm of Renault UK, RCI, can:

"remotely inhibit the battery so that it won't charge should [the] car owner fail to make their monthly rental payments"
It's the first time I've seen in print that Renault has the capability to stop you using your Zoe if you don't pay the battery lease fee, though of course it has long been suspected.


My notes: Well, I think you can just remove the GSM chip, then the car will not be able to communicate with Renault's servers and there will be no battery charging disabling ...  ;-)


But maybe, it is not that simple ...
