    Hi.
    First of all thank you for your site.
    Number 9 Renault Fluence is electric car from Better Place (Renault Fluence ZE) or no?

      Hi Serg, glad you enjoy the site! Israeli sales of Fluence are not split between electric and non-electric so I would assume this figure includes the electric version ZE but also all other versions.
      Hope this helps.
      cheers
      Matt
