Renault Megane E-Tech: Powertrain, Charging and Basics
Megane E-Tech can provide electric motors with two power output options-128hp and 215hp-and two battery sizes-40kWh and 60kWh. The claimed ranges are 300 km and 470 km respectively, and the fastest variant will reach 0 to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds.
With the optional 130kW DC charging, the battery can be charged 15-80% in 30 minutes. It can also tow 900 kg. As for the water-cooled battery pack, 110mm deep, it is said to be the thinnest on the market, and it also helps lower the center of gravity of the car.
Megane E-Tech is equipped with a multi-link rear axle, a Macpherson-style front strut arrangement and a faster steering rack, which Renault is expected to provide first-class handling. Due to extensive weight reduction measures, Megane E-Tech weighs only 1624 kg (for the largest battery model), which is at the low end of the weight range among similar products.
Renault Megane E-Tech: exterior design
The appearance is largely borrowed from the 2020 Mégane eVision concept. Although Mégane E-Tech Electric is equipped with Renault’s familiar C-shaped headlights, it has gained additional design advantages, where the lower part of the C has been extended to run reverse light along the top of the bumper.
The nose is dominated by Renault’s new company badge, which dates back to the Art Deco style of the 1970s, while the taillights are arranged with 3D-effect LEDs as part of the new “sensual technology” on the new car. Flush door handles are standard for the entire series. Low-spec cars are equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels, and top models are equipped with 20-inch wheels.
Although the EV can still recognize the relationship with the ICE Mégane, its wheels have been pushed to the limbs, lengthening its wheelbase by 20 mm to 2700 mm, and bringing more passenger space (further thanks to the floor- Installed batteries). Overall, due to reduced front and rear overhangs, this car is shorter than the ICE model of the same name.
Renault Megane E-Tech: Interior and features
Internally, the new OpenR screen dominates the dashboard. The L-shaped arrangement has a 12.3-inch instrument display and a 12.3-inch infotainment touch screen, and is equipped with integrated vents. It runs Google’s Android operating system, which means that Google Maps, Google Assist (with voice control) and Google Play are all standard.
Renault is keen to emphasize the sustainability of interior materials. Although the top models are equipped with leather, other models use fabric seats made of 100% recycled plastic. A decorative wood veneer called Nuo is used around the dashboard and doors.
There are 48 possible interior lighting options, with a thin strip around the door and dashboard. Mégane E-Tech can also imitate the human 24-hour circadian rhythm by matching the color to the time of day, using cooler tones during the day and warmer red tones at night.
