27 September 2021


The All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric Has Been Unveiled

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is the first model in the Renault range to benefit from it's new platform which is dedicated to all-electric vehicles and makes the vehicle easier to manufacture, develop, and optimise performance of each brand’s new-generation models. Sporting Renault's new ‘Nouvel'R’ logo, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric personifies the brand's transformation. It symbolises how the core of the market is being revolutionised, represents a gigantic leap forward in all aspects, and is exciting to see and to drive each and every time. This will be the first model to be 100% ‘Made in ElectriCity’, Renault Group’s new industrial hub and European leader of EV vehicles located in the North of France. A truly French icon, the windscreen incorporates a rooster silhouette to symbolise the vehicle’s French origin and manufacturing. Make sure to register your interest here at Startin Renault Worcester so we can keep you up to date with all aspects of the vehicle's release in 2022.

Powerful Design Language

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is the first model of the new generation of Renault’s EV cars, with it also being the first model to havethe brand’s new  logo. The innovative design goes against the grain of what traditional compact saloon cars look like, giving the model stronger character, but also better aerodynamic efficiency and economy. With the extended wheelbase (2.70m for a total length of 4.21m) and reduced overhang offered by the new modular platform, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric features a battery that is thinner than ever (only 110mm) allowing the designers to boost the car’s interior roominess and lowering the centre of gravity for a more exciting driving experience.

The car features a brand-new lighting signature with ‘electrifying’ patterns that cross over to the central logo. At the front, daytime running lamps appear to extend beyond the projectors and continue their path up to the side air vents on the shield. In addition to the elegant indicators, the brake lights are displayed in two clear lines, much like a ‘pause’ sign. Each version of the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric incorporates flush door handles. When the driver or front passenger approaches, or when the vehicle is unlocked, the handles hidden in the body automatically glide out. They pop back into place after two minutes of remaining stationary, when the car begins to move forward, or when the doors are locked.

Innovative & Contemporary Interior

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric uses the CMF-EV platform’s best aspects to offer the roomiest interior related to its wheelbase. Drivers and passengers alike enjoy an obstacle-free environment with optimal comfort and a touch of modernity from the new customisable OpenR screen. The screen has a display area like no other: a 12.3-inch dashboard screen and a 12-inch multimedia screen. The entry level model features a 9-inch multimedia screen . It incorporates the latest-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processor with 4K multiple display capabilities, and advanced connectivity with USB-C ports.

Inspiration from the world of home furniture is very present inside the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric with unusual or recycled materials giving the interior a welcoming and homely feel. The designers sought to go beyond more traditional materials such as plastic, and the more classic colours like black. Upholstery on the entry trim level is made entirely out of 100% recycled materials. The mid-level trim with combined TEP/fabric upholstery is also 100% recycled. Lastly, the front and rear backrests and seat panels on the premium trim are entirely leather. The mood lighting in the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is full LED and based on the human body’s natural 24-hour circadian cycles to optimise the well-being of those on-board. Lighting inside the cockpit is achieved via light strips along the dashboard, door panels, and smartphone dock. Named 'Living Lights', it differs between day and night, changing colour every 30 minutes.

Efficient All-Electric Powertrain

With its brand-new motor delivering up to 160kW with 300Nm of torque and four levels of regenerative braking that can be selected via the paddles behind the steering wheel, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric takes the joy of driving an electric vehicle to new heights. Thanks to its optimised design, the motor is compact and only weighs 145kg, which is 10% less than the motor currently used on Zoe despite an increase in both power and torque. Offered in two guises. 96kW (130hp), or 160kW (218hp) and, it takes the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric from 0 to 62mph in just 7.4 seconds.

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric comes with a choice of two battery capacities, 40kWh for a range of 186 miles (WLTP cycle), and 60kWh for a range of up to 292 miles (WLTP cycle, depending on model). They come with an 8-year guarantee, during which they will be replaced free of charge should they deteriorate to less than 70% of their nominal capacity giving you peace of mind. The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is available with multiple charging solutions, and is compatible with all AC charging infrastructure: Domestic socket 10A/2.3kW (single-phase); Green’up Socket 16A/3.7kW (single-phase); Wallbox 32A/7.4kW (single-phase); Public charging station 16A/11kW (single-phase); Public charging station 32A/22kW (triple-phase). Depending on the version, it can also be compatible with DC chargers up to 130kW (combo sockets), such as fast charging stations on motorways.

Safety & Driver Assistance

There are 26 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) on the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric which bring the vehicle to the top of its class in terms of driver comfort and safety for passengers and other road users. Some of these systems include:

  • Active Driver Assist combines contextual adaptive cruise control with "Stop & Go" and Lane Keeping Assist. While adaptive cruise control remains much the same, this new system uses geolocation data and specific maps that include commonly encountered features on inter-urban roads such as roundabouts, speed limit changes, and the angle of dangerous turns.
  • The Around View Monitor 3D uses four cameras to display a 3D model of the vehicle and visualise its immediate surroundings in 360°. The driver can then move around the vehicle via the touch screen, with a panoramic view of the front and rear of the vehicle in order to confidently park the car.

  • The Smart Rear View Mirror uses a camera located at the top of the rear window and displays a real-time view of the road behind on the vehicle's interior rear-view mirror, giving an entirely unobstructed view, in addition to that seen in the wing mirrors.

  • The Full Auto Park feature is an improvement on the Easy Park Assist semi-automatic parking system. The system is nearly entirely autonomous as the driver is no longer required to change gears between drive and reverse, or to use the accelerator or the brakes during an assisted manoeuvre. The driver merely has to press down on the accelerator to indicate to the system to either continue or stop the manoeuvre.
