Megane E-Tech Electric, which will be one of the most important steps of the French brand in the electric vehicle market, will be launched in 2022 as a brand new crossover.
We know that the Renault Megane will continue as an electric crossover. In fact, the company previewed last year Megane eVision showcased the concept. Now hints are also coming from the production version called Renault Megane E-Tech Electric .
Thanks to the visuals in front of us, we get an idea about the interior and exterior design of the Megane E-Tech Electric, albeit limited. In the first image, the rear of the car appears, and we can say that one of the biggest surprises here is seeing Renault’s new logo. On the other hand, thin LED lights look very modern and simple. The company did not neglect to extend the stops with light stripes up to the logo.
On the other hand, we see that the letter ‘E’ at the end of the brand name is written differently on the back of the electric Megane. This could be a design strategy for the French manufacturer to follow in its new electric vehicles. In addition, a trunk spoiler with a third brake light is also one of the details we have seen on the back of the electric Megane.
Other shared images give clues about the interior of the Megane E-Tech Electric. We can see that the adjacent screen design, which we have seen frequently in this area recently, will appear quite differently. Because the multimedia screen in the center of the console has a vertical layout despite being adjacent to the digital instrument panel. Below it are physical buttons and a wireless smartphone charging unit.
We know that the Megane E-Tech Electric will be built on the CMF-EV platform . The same platform constitutes the infrastructure of Nissan Ariya. Technical details are not yet clear, but it was announced that last year’s Megane eVision concept has an electric motor that produces 217 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque with a 60 kWh battery pack that supports charging rates up to 130 kW . It was also among the shared information that the concept offered a range of 450 kilometers on a single charge according to WLTP .
Groupe Renault CEO Luca De Meo stated that the Megane eVision concept is 95 percent ready for production . Therefore, we can expect many of the above features to appear in the mass production version of the electric Megane. The model in question will be produced at Douai facilities in France, along with the electrically revitalized Renault 5.
