At the presentation of the second generation Captur a few months ago, Renault announced a hybrid version of the model, which will appear next year.
Within the debut, the automaker refused to articulate technical characteristics of the model, however, we know that Captur PHEV will be equipped with 1.6-liter petrol engine capacity of 90 HP and is paired with an electric motor producing 70 HP and a starter-generator. The total capacity should be around 160 HP and a battery with a proven capacity of 9.8 kWh, will provide a mileage of 45 km with a maximum speed of 135 km/h solely on electric.
Those interested in hybrid subcompact SUV Renault, according to information available to us, will have to wait until next spring. At the same time, they will have to settle for one of three petrol and two diesel power units with capacity ranges from 100 to 155 HP in the first case and 95 and 115 HP in the second. All variants of the new Captur is offered exclusively with front-wheel drive.
It is expected that this plug-in hybrid powertrain will eventually be integrated into the updated Megane, which is already being tested. In addition, the Nissan Juke second generation is considered a good candidate to receive modifications to the PHEV, as it is based on the same platform CMF-B, and the new Captur and Clio.
