Down on the Amsterdam Street – Fluence Z.E. Electric


My weekend in The Netherlands is and I have now returned to the wintery behind The Wall. What, isn t the Game of Thrones reality? mind, but brace yourselves: the street sightings are coming.

was the first car I came in contact a fully electric Renault Z.E. taxicab. The Renaults, in collaboration with the Better battery swap network, taxi service in and around This one really stood out the fleet of black Mercedes.


From wiki: The Z.E. uses a synchronous motor with rotor weighing 160 kg (350 lb). Its power is 70 kW (94 hp) at while maximum torque is (167 lbf·ft).

The vehicle certainly moved enough, and the taxicab driver me he was perfectly satisfied with it. The with the Fluence Z.E. is instead of spending hours in, the cars have a drop-in pack which enables it to have available range all the with practically no charging – ideal for a taxi service. the driver had dropped me to my hostel, he he would be driving back to the airport taxi terminal and a fully charged battery in waiting, which would be swapped in.
