The Renault Fluence ZE

Hi and welcome to the Renault Fluence ZE page. This is the newest electric concept car from French car company Renault.

Prices will be between 21,300 euro and 26,000, Euro depending on the local VAT rate and available tax incentive packages, excluding battery. The battery will be for lease at the price of 79 euro This special developed electric car looks almost similar as it’s combustion engine cousin.

He’s even a tiny longer than it’s combustion engine brother. This car is 4,79 meters long, what is 13 centimeters longer. The reason is to give the battery space behind the rear seats.

To remain the balance, they have revised the flanks to give the car the same balance as its non-electric twin brother.

So, the Renault Fluence ZE is recognizable at first glance. Looking at this e-car,surprisingly, the Fluence Z.E. looks in many ways as a normal car.

Even the price is comparable with a normal diesel version car.

Inside it has the storage capacity is as much his combustion brother.

So, this is in fact the electric car that could make a break-through on the roads.

The price is perfect, and the looks are perfect too.

Renault Fluence ZE also packs a raft of useful technologies, including a built-in smart navigation system, Bluetooth telephony and automatic dual-zone climate control.

Also, there’s an automatic headlamp and windscreen-wiper activation system.

So this electric car is also an sophisticated high-tech equipped vehicle.

But what about the performances of the car.

The performances

All electric cars have one weak point. Their driving distance. Renault does quit mystery about this. Let’s say that in normal conditions these cars have a drive distance of the lithium/ion batteries of about 200 kilometers or 110 miles.

That’s not so much.

Knowing that the cars electric engine has a weight of 160 kg, and the battery has a weight of 250 kg. So, this makes that the car is heavier than a combustion engine. The weight always has an impact on the driving distance of the car.

Natures physics can’t not be change.

Besides the weight, driving at night, and the weather conditions will also have an influence on the drive capacity.

But the good thing is. Technology don’t stand still..

Electric Cars


There are some new introductions, as there are the capability to get a quick reload, this will be possible by 2012 or 2013 depending of the model. Also, there’s an energy recovery system enables the battery to be charged when the car decelerates.

Also, the Renault Fluence ZE can be charged in three ways.

On a normal household main supply ( 10 A to 16 A 220 V), what will charge the 22 KWh Lithium/ion battery in six to eight hours. Perhaps overnight you could load the battery at reduced tariff, if available in your country of course.

As previous mentioned, the fast charging stations ( 32 A 400V) what will enable you to recharge the battery in approximately 30 minutes. This system will be available in 2012 or 2013, depending on the model.

There’s also a third system, and that’s the quick drop battery swap system. The swapping takes less then three minutes to replace the empty battery, and recharge with a new loaded one. This system will be possible at The battery exchange station and is fairly new, but it will be a huge advantage for the electric cars in the future.

Biggest advantage of electric cars are the driving costs par kilometer/mile. Compared with the combustion engine car,the drive price par kilometer, or mile, will be 30 % from the price. So, when it’s coming to money, the E-car wins with a street or two.

That’s something to be considered. Electric cars are zero emission vehicles. They are perfect to fight climate change, and to make cities cleaner and healthier, what is a fact.

Final conclusion

This car is an excellent car, meeting the standards of an ordinary combustion engine powered vehicle..But this car is special. It has a lot of special technology that no other e-cars have. Biggest advantage of this car is the possibility to swap increase driving range. This will become an important pro point for the future.

All depending how governments will promote (or not) e-cars of course..
