How far should a Renault Zoe travel on a full charge?

I've just bought a 2014 Zoe 22kWh with 35,000 miles on the clock. The range is 55 miles at 100 per cent charge - is my local Renault dealer having a laugh when he says that's reasonable?

A 22kWh battery has a limited range anyway. NEDC 70 miles to a max 130miles; realistically 70-80 miles and in the winter that would be significantly reduced. Additionally, the capacity of your 22kWh batteries will have reduced over five years and 35,000 miles.
