My name is Luís, i´m from Portugal and a recent owner of a fluence 2013 with battery leasing and it´s my first EV. I am sending to retirement my old citröen xsara from 1998 with 380.000 km
After test driving Nissan Leaf, Renault ZOE, Citröen ION and VW e-UP i finally tested the Fluence... got really excited because the car is really beautiful and the price was very attractive. the only con for me was that it doesn´t support the fast charging but since i'll be using the car mainly to go from home to work and it´s about 50miles so i think i can live with that.
For charging i installed a wall box (not the original from Renault) at my garage to charge it during the night because i can´t do it at my work
i´d like to congratulate all of you for this excellent forum, you really got covered all the main issues for someone who is just now starting with an EV
looking forward to come here and also share my experience (hoping it will be a good one) with you guys
