Limit to 180 km / h – No more tearing in a Renault or Dacia

Luca de Meo – who was previously a director of Seat – made his statement during a meeting with shareholders. All new Renaults and Dacias coming on the market from 2022 will be limited to 180 km / h. Or less. Because for the upcoming electric Renault Mégane, De Meo mentions a controlled top of 160 km / h. Anyway, it makes little sense to go faster with an electric car, because then the battery is empty in no time.

High speed plays a role in third fatal accidents

The reason for the 180 km / h restriction is safety. Volvo, for example, already introduced this measure in 2020, with a view to reducing the number of road deaths. The Swedish manufacturer has set itself an ambitious goal: no more road deaths in new Volvos. And according to figures from Veilig Verkeer Nederland (VVN), one third of fatal traffic accidents in the Netherlands can be attributed to speeding, so limiting cars is a logical step.
