Electric Avenue – The Renault Fluence ZE

Fluence ZE

 A 100% electric version of the Renault Fluence, the Renault Fluence Z.E. has arrived in dealerships around the country.  Prices start at €21,610 for the Fluence Z.E. Expression while  the Fluence Z.E. Dynamique version will start at €22,710, approximately the same as the Fluence Diesel  including the government incentive of €5,000. The battery rental starts from €82 (Including VAT) a month for 36 months based on 10,000 km a year. According to Renault comparing the running costs of a Fluence Z.E. with the diesel version and over three years at 15,000km per year, the savings on Fluence Z.E. would be in the region of €2,500. 

Fluence Z.E. has all the standard Renault safety equipment; ABS, airbags, ESP, etc. Its design is modern and refined from the headlamps to the detail on the radiator grille, the blue tint chrome will be the trademark of the Renault Z.E. range.

 “Fluence took Ireland by storm when it arrived in April 2010 and proved very popular with the saloon loving Irish customer. Two years later Fluence ZE has arrived, the ideal saloon for the low mileage driver, who wants to save money and be environmentally responsible” said Eric Basset, Managing Director, Renault Ireland:

“We have a great Irish Z.E. team including nine EV ambassadors who are experts in electric vehicle technology, after sales, and customer care. Our strategy from day one was to make electric vehicles affordable to all and we are standing by this by bringing the Fluence Z.E. to the Irish customer from €21,610, a price that cannot be matched by our competitors”.
