My understanding is that all Renault batteries are "swappable"
Having been originally designed to comply with the now defunct "better place", it wouldn't make sense to redesign your whole battery set up, would it ?

I read that Renault removed swapping from Zoe during a late redesign. Saves them a little on costs.

I would imagine the same is true for the updated Kangoo Z.E. They took out battery swapping to reduce costs. This is just a guess though.


Renault promised rapid charging on Kangoo phase II but then quietly dropped it. My guess is their large fleet customers didn't want to pay the extra €150 per unit. Most of the vans go to the French government. BEV vans work well for mail delivery.

Fluence Z.E. has 4 massive bolts at the bottom and two alignment pins at the top. You can just about see them in this Video.
