Re: Multi sense button

It just toggles through the drive modes? Of course it does more than toggle drive modes. It influence: – steering force; – electronic stability program; – engine responsiveness; – the lighting in the passenger compartment and of the instrument panel; – the presentation of the instrument panel and t...

Re: Are there really only these fuses?

To quote the manual :
Certain fuses should only be replaced by a qualified professional. These fuses are not listed on the label.
Only change the fuses represented on the label.

HPI valuations are typically more representative.

Re: Battery preconditioning?

I was on a 50kw charger. Then later again on a 50kw charger and got 9kw . . Without knowing the details it's impossible to explain. Many possible reasons: - Using the Type 2 Mennekes lead instead of the CCS Combo lead - yes, I've seen this too many times! - Using a charging lead only rated to a low...

Re: My opinion after the first 1000 miles

But Renault like others still advertise the Mégane as 280 miles range. . . NO they don't. They advertise "UP TO 280 MILES", which is (almost) true for the bottom of the range Equilibre model. They could in fact advertise almost any "UP TO" range, as it depends how the car is dri...

That would make sense. But I'd it true.
I've just driven a hour and hooked up to a fast charger but only getting 22kw.

A fast charger can only deliver 22kw. You need to find a RAPID charger for anything over 22kw.

Re: My opinion after the first 1000 miles

I can see the logic of basing WLTP at 30mph for small town based EVS with limited range as they will be designed for town driving. But cars like the Megane E-tech will surely spend more of their lives at speeds above 30 MPH. the drop off on range is significant as the speed goes up. . . To be fair,...

Re: My opinion after the first 1000 miles

The winter range does seem in line with Renault's published numbers on real-world range. Did you use the range calculator at https://www.renault.co.uk/electric-vehicles/megane-electric/range-charge-simulator.html before buying? No EV will ever get close to the WLTP range in winter. WLTP is measured ...
