Renault is nog ‘new wave’ over by elektrische Mégane E-Tech Electric

‘The greenest car brand in Europe’ is of course marketing language, because if we look at Renault’s ambitions in this way, the French manufacturer will not be the greenest at all. By 2030, Renault wants nine out of ten cars sold to have an (semi-) electric powertrain. And with that, the company is not going as far as some competitors, who will already be 100 percent electric in nine years. We shall see. Renault is a large concern that also sells cars in countries where there is no electrical infrastructure whatsoever.

Seven electrified Renault models

Between now and 2025, Renault will introduce seven new models in the C and D segment, all of which will be electrified. The Renault Arkana is the first of these. Much more interesting, in our opinion, is the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric. It will come on the market in 2022, as a separate model next to the regular Renault Mégane. At the time of writing, the Renault electric model range has been narrowed down to just the Renault Zoe and the Renault Twingo ZE, so the plug-in Mégane can’t come fast enough.

Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric with new logo

The attached photo does not reveal much, but we can see that the body of the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric is quite similar to that of the regular Mégane. The only differences we can see are the rear lights (which are slimmer), the LED light bar (which is now straight and does not bend downwards) and the new Renault logo, which debuted on the Renault 5 Prototype. The dashboard of the Mégane E-Tech Electric is quintessentially EV, with a digital cockpit that flows almost seamlessly into a large, vertical infotainment screen.

Range of up to 450 kilometers

In October, Renault unveiled the Mégane EVision, as a foretaste of the Mégane E-Tech Electric. The latter is 15 centimeters shorter than the current Megane, but offers more interior space. The car has front-wheel drive and a power of 217 hp as standard. With its 60 kWh battery, the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric can travel up to 450 kilometers. The water-cooled package can be charged with up to 130 kW, which means a charging speed of 260 kilometers per half hour.
