Renault announce major change to the Megane model range


 

 

An all-new plug-in hybrid (PHEV) model has been added to the Renault Megane product line, and the company is discontinuing all other gasoline and diesel models in the meantime. Renault drop petrol and diesel options for the Megane


However, while no pricing information has been released, the 2021 Megane PHEV is expected to hit showrooms in September and will be capable of travelling up to 30 miles on electric power on its own.



The two trim levels will be the iconic E-Tech Plug-In Hybrid 160 Auto and the sporty R.S. Line E-Tech Plug-In Hybrid 160 Auto, both of which are available now.


Production of the Renault Hatch and Sports Tourer in both petrol and diesel configurations will be phased out completely.



Like its sister model, the Clio-Tech hybrid, the Renault Megane plug-in hybrid is powered by a 1.6-litre petrol engine that is assisted by a 1.2-kW lithium-ion battery and two electric motors, as well as the automatic, multi-mode transmission that is found in all other E-Tech vehicles.



The vehicle starts in 100 percent electric mode from the moment it first moves.


Renault claims that the car can accelerate from zero to sixty-two miles per hour in 9.4 seconds and reach a top speed of 114 miles per hour.


Tested fuel economy is 235.4mpg and CO2 emissions are 28g/km, but these figures will be affected by how frequently the battery is recharged, according to the Renault.



There is also an electronic parking brake, cruise control with a speed limiter, and a 10-inch TFT driver's display. There are three driving modes, eight different ambient lighting colours, and an electronic parking brake included in both trim levels.



As standard safety equipment, the vehicle comes equipped with front and rear parking sensors, Hill Start Assist, and the Visio System, which includes lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high and low beams, among other features.



The Iconic trim level enhances the vehicle's overall package by including 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels as well as a leather steering wheel.

There are two USB ports on the EASYLINK navigation system, as well as Bluetooth and smartphone integration, which includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The navigation system has a 7-inch touchscreen display and has two USB ports and Bluetooth.



Among the many features available on the R.S. Line edition are exclusive body-colored R.S. Line bumpers, 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels, and an R.S. leather steering wheel, which add to the already lengthy list of options.



An Advanced Emergency Braking System (AEBS), a rearview camera, and hands-free parking are also included, and the navigation system has a larger 9.3-inch touchscreen than the previous model.
