RE: No news?
I never managed to go over 90 miles according to the guessometer, but two 34 miles round trips on one charge to work at the height of summer left me with an indicate range of 24 miles ?
It's dropping now though - headlights and heater on at 6am kill the range.
Been an interesting weekend with the Fluence though.
Took the wifes Grand Scenic into the local Renault dealer for a service on Saturday, and asked the service guy for a quote to service my Fluence. Gave him my reg. number (private plate) and saw his face light up ! He recognised the same plate that was on my original (written off) Fluence, telling me how the car was recovered to them by Aviva for battery removal. Apparently, it was quite an event, with both RUK and Aviva filming the process. A postoumous, and fitting end to my original Fluence. Apparently, battery was removed and duly shipped to France to be "reconditioned" at a cost of £700. Still no idea where the car its self (minus battery) ended up.
On Sunday, visiting mum at a care home, and when leaving was approached by a guy who had also been visiting one of his parents. He asked me about the Fluence, before going on to mention his son was involved in the development of the car - and has one as a company car. Forget the name of the company, but his son is based in the London area. The guy I spoke to was somewhat stunned as it was the only one he had ever seen other than his sons.
Apart from that, my Fluence carries on fading into the background, barely getting a second look - apart from when it's in stealth mode in the supermarket car park.
