Fluence is one of four Renault electric cars for Frankfurt

Renault has revealed the electric version of its Fluence saloon in concept form. It is one of the manufacturer’s four electric concepts at the Frankfurt show which preview a future zero-emissions range.

All the production cars will be branded Renault ZE (zero emissions). The Fluence ZE, which is based on the Megane, is a key model in the range.

The five-seat Fluence ZE will go on sale in 2011, when the UK government is making grants of up to £5k available to EV buyers.

The car boasts low-resistance tyres and is powered by a 95bhp electric motor and a lithium ion battery, with a range of 100 miles.

The battery can be charged using one of three methods: a standard charge of between four and eight hours, a quick charge of 20 minutes, or a three-minute battery swap using the 'Quickdrop' system.

The car’s 21-inch wheels have blue hubcaps to create a spiral, channelling the air and improving aerodynamics.

The Fluence will be the first Renault electric car to be introduced in 2011 and will be available in Europe and Israel.
