All electric Renault Fluence and Kangoo unveiled

Following the Fluence Z.E. all-electric sedan concept's unveiling at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show and last December's presentation of the Kangoo Van Z.E. prototype at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Renault recently unveiled the finalized designs of both models.

The French automaker said that customers in Europe and selected countries including Singapore, South Africa and Russia can pre-reserve their vehicle at www.renault-ze.com. First batch of delivery is expected in the first half of 2011.

The Fluence Z.E is powered by an electric motor producing 94HP and 226Nm of torque that motivates the front wheels through a direct drive transmission. The capacity of the Fluence Z.E.'s lithium-ion battery is 22kW/h. The battery itself tips the scales at 250kg and is located behind the rear seats. The driver can charge the battery through a household supply, at fast charge stations using a 32A 400V supply or via a QuickDrop battery switch system that will enable the car's battery to be swapped in approximately three minutes at bespoke battery exchange stations. Fully charged, the Fluence Z.E. has a driving range of up to 160km with a top speed of 130km/h.

Continuing with the Kangoo Z.E., the small van is powered by a 59HP electric motor with 226Nm of peak torque that drives the front wheels. The lithium-ion battery is located in a central position beneath the floor, enabling the Kangoo Z.E. to boast the same carrying capacity as the internal combustion-engined model. The battery can be charged via a household main supply (16A 220V) for about six to eight hours, offering an operational range of 160 km.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.

Cool especially the Fluence Z.E.

That's a nice concept. Honestly, I'm not really an avid fan of Renault but seeing this electric vehicles makes me interested about it especially with the Fluence. This is my first time seeing some cool and promising vehicles from Renault. I kinda like the Fluence body design and lights. Also, I'm quite curious to see how it's engine will perform and how long the battery switch will last on the Fluence in actual run. Hopefully, Renault would release it in the market very soon.
