The Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric is a battery-electric small family car that will be manufactured by the French automaker Renault in 2022. The Mégane is the first Renault model to be based on a specific electric vehicle platform known as the CMF-EV. It’s about the same size as the Capture, but the dedicated electric vehicle platform allows for a wider wheelbase and a larger interior.
|Range (WLTP)||360 km|
|Power||160 kW (218 PS)|
|0 to 100 km/h||7.5-sec|
Renault isn’t stating how much it will cost until approximately September 2022, so exchange rates and competition may have altered by then. Lease rates are even less predictable.
However, the standard we tested can cost up to £40k. That includes premium trim, a 60kWh battery, and 220bhp. A VW ID3 with a 58kWh battery and 204bhp costs around the same.
Meganes with the base model have a 40kWh battery, 130bhp, and a 186-mile range. If the Government grant still has a £35k threshold, Renault will find a way to sell one with a specification that falls just short of that and get the money.
Compact body, crossover styling, contoured back end, and athletic silhouette The aerodynamic lines of the all-new Megane provide a striking appearance for a thrilling drive. A completely unique and eye-catching appearance is shown by 20″ alloy wheels*, full-LED trademark lighting, and gold chrome details.

Smart Rear-View Mirror
There will be no more issues caused by a passenger or boot luggage impeding your vision. A camera in the back window sends images directly to your rearview mirror.
Adaptive Vision LED lights (including fog mode)
To increase your comfort and safety, the technology automatically modifies the form of the light beam based on traffic conditions and weather.
Automatic Switch Between the Main Beam and Dipped Beam Headlights
A camera at the top of the windscreen activates it. Light flow is analysed by the camera based on lighting and traffic circumstances.
Hill Start Assists
It retains braking pressure for 2 seconds automatically, giving you time to remove your foot off the brake and engage the accelerator. When the gradient is more than 3%, the mechanism is engaged.
Cruise Control and Speed Limiter
As you drive, use the steering wheel buttons to control your speed. Set your top speed to stay inside the speed limits on the road.
Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control
It assists you in keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you while driving. When the distance is too short, the system applies the brakes, and when the road is clear again, it applies the acceleration. It also recognizes the road’s context, such as traffic bottlenecks or roundabouts, to modify the speed ahead of time.
If the car detects a potential accident when changing lanes, it immediately corrects the trajectory. It employs light signals to alert you of vehicles that are outside of your line of view and is activated at 9 mph.
Rear Automatic Emergency Braking
When reversing, your vehicle automatically stops if there are obstructions to the rear of your vehicle.
The safe distance from the car in front is calculated by a sensor on the front of your vehicle. If a collision is imminent, the system gives an auditory and visual alert.
Lane Keeping Assist
If your car crosses a continuous or broken line without utilising indicators between 45 and 100 mph, the system countersteers it back into its lane.
Road Sign Recognition
Throughout your travel, a camera monitors speed restrictions and alerts you via the dashboard.
Road Sign Recognition with Speed Alert
Throughout your drive, a camera at the top of the windscreen detects speed limits and informs you via the dashboard if you are over them.

Perform movements with ease. Your vehicle has four cameras that provide 360° view all around it.
Rear View Camera
When you put the vehicle in reverse, it sends a rear view to the screen. Guidance lines make maneuvering easier and safer.
Foldable Mirror with Memory Function
Mirrors that fold electrically and have a profile memory feature as well as a tilt function in reverse.
Rear Park Assists
It has sensors that make navigation easier by alerting you to obstacles behind you using a combination of auditory and visual cues.
Front Park Assists
It has sensors that make maneuvering easier by alerting you to objects in front of you using a combination of auditory and visual signals.
The new CMF-EV platform has a 60kWh ultra-slim battery and a 160kW compact motor. Weight distribution optimization, a longer wheelbase, a completely flat floor, and a low centre of gravity provide the car better agility and internal spaciousness.
The Megane E-Tech 100 percent electric vehicle is one of the lightest in its class (1620kg). A mechanism on board automatically adjusts the battery and motor temperatures. As a result, regardless of the outside conditions, you will benefit from greater driving range from similar power.
Innovative aerodynamics also contribute to greater driving range. Megane’s low profile, coupé-style roof, narrow-side tires, contoured bumper, and electronic retractable door handles are structural characteristics that improve economy.
Reinventing the Car
Megane E-Tech is an all-electric vehicle that will accompany you everywhere you go. It delivers up to 280 miles of WLTP electric driving range, based on Renault’s electrification knowledge spanning over ten years.
Understand your range with our simulator
Factors that can impact your range
The driving range of the Megane E-Tech 100 percent electric might vary depending on a number of factors, including weather conditions, driving style, and the number of passengers on board. The weight of the vehicle can be influenced by the version chosen. To determine the actual driving range, use the simulator below, which takes into account the driving circumstances.
Driving range and fast charging – the winning combination
Driving range and recharging possibilities are the two most important variables to consider while planning your trip. Find the appropriate mix to meet your needs. For example, on a 300-mile excursion on the highway, you can travel 200 miles and then recharge in 30 minutes, giving you more than the final 100 miles. This is comparable to the overall time required while driving a typical combustion engine car.
