The new Renault Mégane E-Tech is the brand's first 100% electric SUV and comes with the promise of up to 470 km of autonomy

The electric car market increasingly has a broader showcase, especially as they put a deadline on their manufacture of combustion cars . Renault is aiming for 2025 in this regard, and on the way to that point it has now unveiled the Mégane E-Tech , its latest electric car.

An SUV that we already had a preview of last June and that could have been somewhat more compact than its combustion predecessor in part because of this change. A vehicle with which the brand launches its own platform and that seems destined to be a headache for the Volkswagen ID.3 .

A slightly more compact design and an interior with huge touchscreens

Renault explains that with the low design of the new Mégane E-Tech they have wanted to break with the traditional lines in a compact saloon by releasing a new design language ( sensual-tech , they have called it) without neglecting the ergonomics in the interiors and aerodynamics. abroad. Leaving aside what they describe, we see that the front has some reminiscence of its current combustion predecessor, with the longer headlights and a somewhat more striking design, but maintaining that compact saloon status that we said.

The new E-Tech measures 4.21 meters long, with a wheelbase of 2.7 meters, 1.78 meters wide and 1.5 meters high, with a boot volume of 440 liters. New proportions in this model that are due, in part, to the premiere of the new modular CMF-EV platform .

At the engine level, the Mégane E-Tech Electric starts with 130 hp with a 40 kWh battery. To this the brand gives a figure of autonomy of up to 300 km (in WLTP cycle), although there will be a version for company fleets that will have a 60 kWh battery with which it promises up to 470 km of autonomy (or for individuals associated with a 218 hp engine).

Spinning with the batteries, Renault talks about the charging time in several cases such as 8 hours with a 7.4 kW charger (which can be charging at night in a house, with a private charger). It also promises up to 160 km in an hour on a 22 kW public charger and 300 km if it is a fast charging one (130 kW).

Beyond this, there are some features that stand out such as the central 12-inch touch screen combined with another 12.3-inch, which make up the dashboard separated by the air outlet and are set in an inverted "L" manner. In total they offer a display area of ​​774 cm² , 321 cm² for the 12.3-inch screen (1,920 x 7.20 pixels) and 453 cm² for the 12-inch screen (1,250 x 15.62 pixels). Of course, in the normal range the multimedia screen has 9 inches (1250 x 834 pixels, landscape format).

The problem of bringing touch interfaces to cars is real, and it is going to get more and more In xiaomist.com The problem of bringing touch interfaces to cars is real, and it is going to get more and more

The part of what would be the instrument panel of the screen offers four views to the driver: driving mode (counters), navigation (maps), zen (a minimalist mode) and battery mode (state of charge data), which can be customized. It has the Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit platform from Qualcomm, a manufacturer that we will cite at the end for manufacturing issues.

It is also noteworthy that the Mégane E-TECH Electric has access to the battery for firefighters , which allows emergency teams to quickly extinguish a burning battery. As the brand promises, the flames could be contained in 5 minutes and no more than an hour, as can happen in an electric vehicle without this system (depending on the brand).

The new Mégane E-Tech is already in production and will go on sale in the first quarter of 2022 . For now there is no official price, but there is talk that it could start at 30,000 and 34,000 euros, so it will be necessary to see if it finally remains that way.

And will there be enough to meet demand without manufacturing problems due to chip shortages ? That will also have to be seen, but to try to save itself from that happening, the announcement of the new Mégane came with another one from an agreement with Qualcomm , one of the main chip manufacturers, with which Renault could benefit from the availability of chips In the near future.
