RE: probably the cheapest fluence yet
I don't think it's a matter of shifting production to Korea, Renault-Samsung took their time getting their version right before pushing it out to the public wile Renault Europe dashed ahead and clearly got their fingers burnt. There are some reports in Asian press that indicate that the samsung version was "the original" and that the front end was changed by Renault to distinguish the two. The samsung front end looks far more fitting to the body in my opinion.
Battery leases are up t o 3 years though for a higher monthly cost an owner can opt for a shorter period, just as they can opt for higher mileage, again at a cost.
