Despite the fact that many automakers have decided to skip the main auto show in Germany, the Munich motor show promises many high-profile premieres. One of them is the all-electric Renault Megane.
Less than a year has passed since the debut of the Renault Megane eVision Concept show car, and now the French are ready to present a production model. This will happen during the 2021 Munich Motor Show, which will replace the Frankfurt Motor Show.
The all-electric crossover hatchback will be the star of Renault’s booth from September 6-12. The novelty will bear the name Megane E-Tech Electric, and the automaker is in no hurry to share details. It is possible that the new electric car will be sold in parallel with the current Megane, which is now available with conventional gasoline, diesel and hybrid engines.
It will hold out on the assembly line for at least several years, while Renault fully electrifies its prayer line. The high-rise hatchback will be Renault’s first all-electric model for the European market and will join the Twingo E-Tech Electric A-segment and Zoe B-segment.
Megane E-Tech Electric is based on the CMF-EV platform, and its 217-horsepower electric motor is responsible for its performance.
The drive is apparently front-wheel drive. A 60 kWh battery will be responsible for the electric mileage, according to unconfirmed reports. The concept could travel about 450 kilometers without recharging. What mileage the serial electric car will have is not reported. The French have already released 30 copies of the new Megane, which is prepared for the role of test machines.
The first deliveries of new items should begin in the first half of 2022. Renault will also showcase the Renault 5 Concept and other E-Tech production models during the IAA in Munich.
Earlier, our portal said that the new M-Sport rally hybrid for the WRC will be built on the basis of the Ford Puma. The novelty meets all the rules of the World Rally Championship.
