Renault Scenic E-Tech 100% electric: 379-mile range

The Renault Scenic E-Tech 100% electric features an 87kWh battery giving a range of up to 379 miles (WLTP). It’s now available to order, priced from £40,995, with first deliveries expected from May 2024.

The Scenic E-Tech 100% electric has a 160kW (220hp) electric motor with 300Nm of torque.

The battery is 6% more energy dense than that in the Megane E-Tech 100% electric, and a heat pump is standard in the Scenic E-Tech 100% electric, helping to recover heat and energy that would otherwise be wasted.

The Scenic E-Tech 100% electric has a maximum DC rapid charging rate of 150kW; Renault says that a 30-minute charge can provide two hours of driving range at motorway speeds. The car can also AC charge at up to 22kW.

A journey planner can decide where to charge, and even weather information helps to estimate the battery’s remaining range by taking information such as wind direction and speed into account.

The Scenic E-Tech 100% electric offers a Solarbay panoramic glass roof with the ability to change its opacity one segment at a time. This allows the driver and passengers to choose any of four roof settings: full light, full opaque, light at the front but opaque at the back, and light at the back but opaque at the front.

The Scenic is known for offering practical amounts of space, and the five-seater electric model has a 545-litre boot, or 1,670 litres with the rear seats folded. Rear seat passengers have their own armrest with two swivelling arms, 3.6 litres of storage for smartphones and tablets, fold-out stands to watch screens, two cupholders and two USB-C ports.

When you sit in the Scenic E-Tech 100% electric you’re greeted by a welcome sound sequence composed by Jean-Michel Jarre, who also developed an external sound for pedestrians.

There are four MULTI-SENSE modes – Comfort, Sport, Eco and Perso – which are combined with 48 colours for the dashboard, backlighting and front and rear door strips.

Three Renault Scenic E-Tech 100% electric trim levels will be on offer: techno (£40,995), esprit Alpine (£43,495) and iconic (£45,495).

You need to go for the top of the range iconic model if you want the Solarbay opacifying panoramic sunroof and 20-inch alloy wheels rather than 19-inch wheels (unusually, Renault isn’t quoting any difference in driving range between the 19-inch and 20-inch wheels).
