Renault Fluence Sales Figures

Renault Fluence

The Renault Fluence is sold in Europe as a standalone model, but can be seen as the four-door sedan version of the Megane. It is a rebadged Samsung SM3, built in Turkey. The Fluence is not sold in all European countries, as four-door compact cars are mainly popular in Southern countries, whereas in the North of Europe, car buyers prefer three- or five-door hatchbacks or station wagons.

A full-electric zero emission version of the Renault Fluence is sold in Europe as well, but in contrast with Renault’s other EVs the Zoe subcompact, Twizy quadricycle and Kangoo Cargo Van, the Fluence Z.E. hasn’t been very successful.

Unfortunately the pilot project was cut short when the parent company filed bankruptcy and . Ironically, Amsterdam Schiphol Airport has now employed a fleet of 167 Tesla Model S full electric sedans as the official airport taxis.
