Electric cars aren’t a new thing. In fact, they have existed for a very long time. Advancements in technology, as well as the development of new technologies, have allowed us to experiment with the idea and take electric vehicles to another level. The car that we are going to look at today is the Renault Fluence Z.E. Introduced in 2011, the car was the world’s first ever electric vehicle capable of battery swapping.

Today, it’s not uncommon for brands to launch all-electric vehicles. They’re accepted by the public and customers seem to be slowly warming up to the idea, with sales constantly increasing.

Although the Fluence Z.E. didn’t bring anything new to the table appearance-wise, the car definitely offered a lot when it came to performance.

The lithium-ion battery, which powered the vehicle, had the capacity of 22kWh.  The battery could be fully charged a at specifically designed chare spot in around 6 to 9 hours. Using a standard household electrical outlet, increased the charging time to around 10 to 12 hours however.

It was the car’s battery swap technology that launched the vehicle into the spotlight. No other car in the world offered the option, therefore the Fluence Z.E. was a first.

On top of that it received a four star safety rating from Euro NCAP, which means that it was quite a safe vehicle.

Perhaps not the greatest electric car ever produced, the innovative technology that the Fluence Z.E. introduced to the world, definitely made it unique.

You can still buy the vehicle in a number of different countries, however it was withdrawn from the UK market in 2014, after only two years.
