Introduction

Renault solves the problem of price and depreciation of an electric car by selling the car minus the battery at around the same price as a diesel car (after the government £5,000 subsidy). Then leasing the battery at £70 per month which, with the cost of electricity, works out about the same as running a diesel car.

But, of course, the Fluence is VED free and London Congestion tax free. Prices have been announced and the Fluence ZE costs £17,850 on-the-road after the £5,000 government subsidy has been deducted. There is of course, the battery leasing fee and charging cost, too.
