Renault releases prices for fully-electric Fluence Z.E.

The Renault Fluence Z.E. is set to be the UK's cheapest, fully electric, full-size car when it goes on sale in 2012.

Priced at £17,850 on the road (which includes a £5,000 government grant) the Fluence is powered by a 95bhp electric motor giving a range of up to 115 miles and providing 226Nm of torque.

In 'Prime Time' five-seat, four-door saloon guise, the Fluence comes as standard with 16-inch alloys, automatic lights and wipers, climate control, cruise control, an economy meter and a TomTom sat-nav device. Renault are keen to stress that the Fluence has been priced to be competitive with comparably-sized and equipped diesel cars in an attempt to attract more buyers to their zero tail-pipe emission vehicles.

The Fluence will arrive on UK shores in 2012, followed by three other fully electric models. Renault have also announced a battery lease scheme whereby owners pay a monthly fee to cover all battery and technology maintenance. Contracts will be priced from £75.
