The Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric is a fully electric car with two battery options, 40kWh for a range of 186 miles, and 60kWh for a range of up to 292 miles.
The electric motor, which doesn’t require rare earth metals, produces 96kW (130hp) and 250Nm, or 160kW (218hp) and 300Nm. The Mégane E-Tech Electric can accelerate from 0 to 62mph in just 7.4 seconds, and there are four regenerative braking levels.
The Mégane E-Tech Electric’s new lithium-ion NMC (Nickel, Manganese, Cobalt) battery from LG is only 110mm in depth (40% smaller than the Zoe’s battery), which helps to lower the car’s centre of gravity. The car will be able to feed power back into the grid thanks to its vehicle to grid (V2G) technology.
Charging times can vary depending upon the charging type as follows:
• Up to 248 miles of mixed driving recovered overnight (8 hours) with a 7.4kW wallbox
• Up to 99 miles of urban driving recovered in 1 hour, with a 22kW public charging station
• Up to 124 miles of motorway driving recovered in 30 minutes with a 130kW fast charging station
