If the tests are successful, the Fluence electric car is expected to go on sale in Europe in 2011.

Renault has three other electric cars on display in Frankfurt, plus three electric car charging systems.

The charging systems are it’s high-powered, quick-charge plug-in system, an overnight, home-based plug-in system and its automated ‘Quick Drop’ system, which can remove and replace a battery in three minutes.
