UK Fluence ZE Owner
Hi, everyone. I'm a retired science teacher living in N. Oxfordshire. I've always been crazy about cars and spent many years administering a club for Triumph Dolomites. Amongst the hundreds of cars I've experienced I have had Prius Mk.1 and Honda Civic IMA hybrids so the next logical step was to hunt down an all electric car.
The choice being limited, it came down to a Leaf or a Fluence, neither of which I had ever seen in the flesh. A trawl of the internet led me to Aylesbury where there were a couple of low mileage Leafs and a test drive was arranged. It went well but I decided the blackpool illuminations pretending to be a dahboard were so over the top I'd be screaming for mercy within a week. A Fluence was harder to track down, the local dealership had never seen one and hadn't any idea when they'd be getting one. So back to the internet and on 2nd. January (late xmas present to myself) I committed myself to one from Manchester.
My experiences so far deserve airing so shortly I will be revealing all the gory details under the Fluence section. Enjoy
