The electric version will be built at OYAK-Renault factory in Bursa, Turkey where the internal combustion engine-powered versions of Fluence are also built.

Interior for the electric version and its the internal combustion engine remains the same and the other major features include a built-in smart navigation system, Bluetooth telephony and automatic dual-zone climate control, plus automatic headlamp and windscreen-wiper activation.
