Electric sedan concept Renault Fluence presented in Frankfurt

The French automaker Renault has used its Frankfurt Auto Show presence to publicly present no less than four electric concept vehicles. The four electric concept vehicles are the two seat Twizy Z.E. mini, the Zoe Z.E small coupe, the Renault Kangoo Z.E. and the Renault Fluence Z.E. compact sedan. Out of all these electric concept cars, the Renault Fluence Z.E. compact sedan looks closest to production ready form. According to what the French automaker said, the four concept vehicles are meant to preview the electric vehicle range that will be presented in two years time by Renault. All the Renault electric concepts use practically the same technology as the Nissan Leaf electric vehicle that was revealed just a couple of months ago.

The Renault Fluence Z.E. electric compact sedan looks really good and actually closest to production ready form. Still, it is hard to believe that Renault will be able to series produce the Renault Fluence electric vehicle looking like this. The Renault Fluence electric comes with an electric engine that has an output of 95 horsepower. The electric engine gets its juice from a pack of lithium ion batteries that allow the car to have a driving range of 160 kilometers. If these figures would come back in the production ready electric Renault Fluence, it would be quite nice.

The French automaker claims that the lithium ion battery pack can be charged in three ways. The first way is a standard charge that takes between four and eight hours. This type of charge is ideal for most people, as they can leave the car plugged in a conventional outlet while they are sleeping. The second way is a quick charge that takes only twenty minutes but this type of charge does not completely charge the lithium ion battery pack. The third way is an automated Quickdrop system that removes and replaces the batteries in just three minutes. Obvious, this third way is the most expensive of all.
