Renault Megane E-TECH Electric to break cover in September
French automaker Renault will unveil its Megane E-TECH Electric at the 2021 IAA Munich Motor Show, which will start from September 7 onwards. For testing purposes, the automaker has produced 30 examples of the battery-powered crossover, while customer units are expected to be delivered next year. The Megane E-TECH Electric will pack a 60kWh battery and offer a maximum range of 450km per charge.
The Renault Megane E-TECH Electric will be based on the CMF-EV platform. It will have a sporty stance with a sloping roofline, a flat bonnet, a wide air vent, a roof-mounted spoiler, and an antenna on the rear. For lighting, it will offer sleek headlamps and wrap-around taillamps. On the sides, the four-wheeler will be flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and multi-spoke wheels.
The Renault Megane E-TECH Electric will draw power from a 60kWh battery, combined with a 217hp electric motor. It will deliver a range of up to 450km per charge, based on the WLTP cycle.
The Renault Megane E-TECH Electric will reportedly offer a 5-seater cabin with an all-black color scheme and gold contrast stitching. It will likely house a digital instrument cluster and a touchscreen infotainment console with support for the latest connectivity options. For safety, multiple airbags, ABS with EBD, and a rear-view camera should be available.
The Megane E-TECH Electric will be revealed at the Munich Motor Show in September this year and the prices will be announced at the time of launch in early-2022. For reference, the current-generation Megane PHEV starts at £30,995 (roughly Rs. 32 lakh) in the UK.
