Renault Scénic E-Tech electric

The Renault Scénic used to be an MPV, but it’s now due to be reinvented as an SUV, with an electric powertrain.

The Renault Scénic E-Tech electric will be based on the same platform as the Megane E-Tech Electric (and the Nissan Ariya, thanks to the Nissan-Renault Alliance – which now also includes Mitsubishi).

The five-seater Scénic E-Tech electric will be a ‘C-segment’ EV, like the Megane E-Tech Electric, but we’re expecting the Scénic to offer more space, as well as having more SUV-like styling.

We’ve only got a teaser image of the Scénic E-Tech electric at the moment, but the production model will be revealed at the 2023 IAA Mobility Show in Munich on 4 September, in advance of deliveries in 2024. The Scénic E-Tech electric was previewed by last year’s Renault Scénic Vision concept (which had a hydrogen fuel cell range extender powertrain). Pre-production Scenic E-Tech electric cars will be tested this summer.

The Megane E-Tech, which is currently on sale, has a 60 kWh battery, giving a WLTP combined range of up to 280 miles, and a 160 kW / 220 hp electric motor. It has a maximum DC rapid charging rate of 130 kW, allowing to charge from 0% to 80% in 42 minutes at a public rapid charger.

Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi Motors (including Dacia and Alpine) are due to launch 35 new EV models by 2030 as part of their future roadmap.
