Uk will only get electric versions of Fluence saloon

The Renault Fluence saloon will only be sold in the UK as an electric car.

"Petrol and diesel modeks will be developed, but the market for a compact four-door saloon in the UK is so small as to make it unfeasible for the UK," said renault's electric car boss Andy Heiron.

The standard Renault Fluence is set to be built in Turkey, where the Megane saloon was previously made, and go on sale on Turkey, Russia and Romania only.

An electric version of the Fluence will be trialled in Israel as part of a tie-in with Project Better Place, which is developing electric car charging systems.

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

The Samsung SM3 version for Korea has a nicer grill treatment than the production Renault version.
