I'm selling my beloved Renault Fluence ZE with 31,000 miles. Bought it as a non-runner, and tuned the hell out of it. Already drove >2,000 miles since I started driving it consistently 1,5 months ago. I barely spend anything on electricity as my local Tesco features a free 22kw pod point charging connection. I already saved 200£ just on fuel difference compared to my previous car in this interval.

My intention was never to sell it, but my family grew so I need a bigger car. I'm considering swaping it for a Nissan E-NV200 Evalia or a Renault Kangoo ZE Maxi (passenger version of it), I intend on modifying the hell out of that as well. Looking for batteryless projects as well: Renault or Nissan make.

It features:
1) the Renault Zoe Q210 powertrain, thus takes advantage of the 3-phase 22kw OnBoardCharger. The right wing Type1 socket was replaced with the Zoe Type 2 one. The left wing still houses the Type1 socket (not connected). I could add CHAdeMO socket in there and make it work for 1,000£.

2) the Nissan Leaf 40kWh battery pack. Less miles on it than the car has. I've never driven it till it stopped, but 160miles were driven consistently at 4.7mi/kWh. The guess o meter is spot on. I never look at cells in CAN ZE.

You could check the build process on my most commented topic in this forum (batteryless fluence ...). All the pictures are there, so I won't post many in here.


What it needs doing:

Just carpeting the boot. That's it. It will be done once I 'm able to make time for it. It is already soundproofed.

What I can offer as extra: free remote tech support for the lifetime of the vehicle. I can be considered a very experienced Renault EV technician so it can't get better than this. In MK I could offer the 18,000 miles service intervals for a reasonable amount. I've already changed all fluids 2,000 miles ago.

The car can be viewed in St Albans.

Price: 13,000£. No offers. In parts alone it's worth this amount. Zoe's with 40kWh battery sell for 10k with the battery lease. The difference in ride quality is noticeable.

Great job with the conversion! This is what Renault should have done.

Edit: just read the build topic. Fantastic work.
