The rules of the game are being rewritten with the CMF-EV platform developed by the Alliance. Carrying the brand's new logo, the model symbolizes Renault's transformation. The vehicle, which is produced by Europe's leading electric vehicle center ElectriCity, has the distinction of being the first of Generation 2.0 electric vehicles.

Life in the cabin is being reshaped

Rising on the CMF-EV platform, the New Megane E-TECH Electric takes advantage of the platform to offer the largest interior space according to its footprint. Driver and passengers enjoy the new OpenR display's approach to optimum comfort and modernity.

In the new Megane E-TECH Electric, the feeling of spaciousness when opening the door and getting into the vehicle draws attention.

Thus, passengers can enjoy extra spaciousness in the center console and under the instrument panel area. In addition, since the shaft tunnel, gear lever and control panel are not usually integrated into the center console, the space gained is utilized for the comfort and convenience of the passengers.

Taking electric vehicle performance to a new dimension

The new Megane E-TECH Electric takes the pleasure of driving an electric vehicle to a whole new level with its electric motor that produces 160 kW of power and 300 Nm of torque in the top version and supports efficiency with its four-level regenerative braking function. The electric driven synchronous motor (EESM) has been used by the Renault Group and the partnership for the past ten years and will continue to serve in the future. It produces more power compared to a permanent magnet motor and reduces the environmental impact and cost of large-scale production as it is free of earth metals.

The engine, which has a compact structure thanks to its optimized design, is 10% lighter compared to ZOE's engine with 145 kg despite higher power and torque production. Two power levels are available: 96 kW (130 hp) and 250 Nm of torque, as well as 160 kW (218 hp) and 300 Nm of torque. Providing all the pleasures of electric car driving with its smooth and dynamic instant acceleration performance, the new Megane E-TECH Electric reaches 0 to 100 km/h in just 7.4 seconds.

The new Megane E-TECH Electric; It fulfills this requirement with two different battery options, 40 kWh and 60 kWh, innovative energy management systems and numerous charging solutions. It offers two different battery options: 40 kWh for a range of 300 km (WLTP cycle) and 60 kWh for a range up to 470 km (WLTP cycle depending on version).

Each time the car brakes, the battery collects energy. However, no matter how the car is driven, the new Megane E-TECH Electric increases efficiency with its optimized brake energy recovery system.
