Prices confirmed for Renault Fluence EV

Renault first electric car will be priced from £17,850 after the government's £5,000 subsidy when it goes on sale.

The five-seat, four-door Fluence will arrive in the UK in 2012 and is eligible for the £5,000 government grant for electric cars, while its battery will be leased from £75 a month (for 6,000 miles a year over three years). Additional mileage and contract length details will be available closer to UK launch.

The initial launch version of Fluence ZE, Prime Time, comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, climate control, cruise control, ecoMeter and Carminat TomTom Live smart satellite navigation, together with charging sockets on both front wings.

The Fluence's electric motor produces 95bhp and 167lb-ft of torque, and has a maximum range between recharges of 115 miles.

More information on the Renault Z.E. range, including reservations, is available at www.renault-ze.com. Registration on the site is free and enables prospective buyers to choose their vehicle and benefit from priority availability and test drives as soon as it comes to market.

These customers will then be contacted by Renault as the date of the vehicle's release approaches to obtain confirmation of their reservation. The website will also give registered visitors access to exclusive, electric mobility-related content, services and applications.
