Renault publishes new images of its future 100% electric Mégane and unveils its first technical characteristics.
Surprise at Renault! A month almost to the day after a first series of pictures , the French manufacturer has just published new images of its future Mégane .
The new 100% electric Mégane E-Tech is unveiled today in camouflage , which echoes the brand’s new logo, and in a pre-production version . The opportunity to see that the sedan will be aesthetically close to the eVision show car which was presented in October 2020.
Close to the eVision show-car
We find the same robust and compact silhouette but also the same front light signature with optical units linked together by a thin strip and completed by an angular “S”. At the back, same topo. The lights are thin, horizontal and connected by a light strip. For the rest, the surfaces are smooth, the sides hollowed out and the hips marked. At the front as at the rear, we also notice the presence of the new striped and illuminated Renault logo .
However, no new photo of the interior has been published. Photos released last month, however, revealed a completely redesigned interior including a floating center console and a new dashboard. A large digital panel was also on the program. It was made up of two screens positioned in an L- shape , one for the instrument cluster and the other for the new generation multimedia system.
217 hp and up to 450 km of autonomy
The diamond also takes advantage of these few images to reveal the first technical characteristics of the car. The new Mégane E-Tech Electric, also called MéganE (pronounced “Mégane i”), will therefore be equipped with a 160 kW (217 hp) electric motor and a 60 kWh battery which will allow it to travel up to 450 km according to the WLTP standard.
The compact will also be based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-EV (Common Module Family-Electric Vehicles) platform , designed exclusively for 100% electric vehicles and inaugurated by the Nissan Ariya SUV .
30 Mégane E-Tech Electric tested on the road this summer
This new appearance of the MéganE marks the start of its testing on open roads. Led by Renault engineers, 30 vehicles will be driving the roads this summer. The presentation of the car should take place in the coming weeks . Produced at the end of the year at the Douai plant (North), it will be marketed at the beginning of 2022.
