As a pioneer and expert in electric mobility, Renault is giving the New Mégane the benefit of the 160hp E-TECH Plug-in rechargeable hybrid engine. It benefits from a new technology that focuses on energy recovery and is directly inspired by our Formula 1 expertise.

The E-TECH Plug-in technology was developed by Renault Engineering and is the subject of over 150 patents. It uses components designed within the Alliance, such as its new-generation 1.6-liter 4-cylinder petrol engine with two electric motors and an innovative multimode gearbox. This clutchless transmission has excellent efficiency and barely noticeable gear changes.
With its 9.8 kWh (400V) battery capacity, the New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in can be driven on 100% electric power at speeds of up to 135 kph. The efficiency of its energy management system enables it to achieve a range of 50 kilometers in mixed cycle (WLTP*) and up to 65 kilometers over an urban cycle (WLTP* City), without using the combustion engine.
The New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in thus proves its versatility. It can operate without consuming fuel on everyday journeys and is perfect for long journeys on weekends or for holidays. Whatever the battery charge status, the New Mégane E-TECH Plug-in benefits from the major advantages of the E-TECH hybrid system: the systematic use of the electric motor when starting up for improved responsiveness and reduced fuel consumption.
