Renault has a number of hybrid and electrified models on sale now, and due to come to market, but which models are electric, which are plug-in hybrids, which are hybrids, and which are mild hybrids? We’ll try to explain…
The Renault Mégane eVision concept car has just been revealed, but this isn’t on sale yet – the production version of the Mégane eVision hatchback is set to be introduced in the UK in 2022.
Renault’s Dacia brand has just announced the all-electric Dacia Spring Electric – and a Dacia Spring Electric Cargo utility version – with a 140 mile electric range, which it claims will be the ‘most affordable electric vehicle in Europe’, but the company says that there are no plans for the Dacia Spring Electric to be sold in the UK.
The Renault Captur E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid is available now. The Renault Mégane Sport Tourer E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid is also currently on sale, with a 1.6-litre petrol engine combined with a 9.9kWh battery and two electric motors, offering 30 miles of electric range. The Renault Mégane Hatch E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid will be released in Europe in the first half of 2021.
The Renault Clio E-TECH Hybrid is available now. The new Renault Arkana E-TECH Hybrid and the new Renault Captur E-TECH Hybrid will be released in Europe in the first half of 2021.
The new Renault Captur and Renault Arkana SUV, due in 2021, will also be available with a 1.3-litre TCe 140 petrol engine and 12V mild-hybrid technology.
Hopefully that’s all now a bit clearer…
