Renault unveils new Megane and Megane E-Tech plug-in
Renault is renewing its entire Mégane range: Hatchback, Estate, R.S. Line, R.S. and R.S. Trophy. Renault is offering a new rechargeable hybrid engine: New Mégane E-Tech plug-in.
The New Mégane offers a renewed and modernized cockpit. It features new 9.3-inch multimedia screens and 10.2-inch dashboard screens and benefits from all the features of the Renault EASY LINK multimedia system. This system, whose operation is inspired by smartphone use, is designed to be ergonomic and more functional, for ease of use.
To enhance safety and comfort for all, new driving aids are available. These include the Motorway and Traffic Assistant, an autonomous level 2 system.
The New Mégane introduces new Pure Vision LED headlamps to improve visibility and comfort during journeys.
The E-TECH Plug-in technology was developed by Renault Engineering and is the subject of over 150 patents. It uses components designed within the Alliance, such as its new-generation 1.6-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors and an multimode gearbox.
With its 9.8 kWh (400V) battery capacity, the New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in can be driven on 100% electric power at speeds of up to 135 kph. The efficiency of its energy management system enables it to achieve a range of 50 kilometers in mixed cycle (WLTP*) and up to 65 kilometers over an urban cycle (WLTP* City), without using the combustion engine.
Available for launch on the new Mégane Estate, the E-TECH Plug-in engine will also be offered on the hatchback version at a later date.
The new Mégane will go on sale from summer 2020.
