All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric unveiled at the IAA Munich Mobility Show 2021.


The Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric was inspired by the MORPHOZ concept car in 2019 then heralded by the Mégane eVision show car in 2020, the latest model with a sleek, elegant style goes beyond expectations. Thanks to the Alliance-developed CMF-EV platform, it rewrites the rulebook and pushes the boundaries in terms of design, footprint/habitability ratio and versatility. It is as much a joy to drive as it is to behold.

Sporting Renault's new ‘Nouvel'R’ logo, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric personifies the brand's transformation: it symbolises how the core of the market is being revolutionised, represents a gigantic leap forward in all aspects, and is exciting to see and to drive each and every time. It proudly stands as a uniquely technological car with the interior adorned by its crowning jewel, the OpenR screen that brings together the instrument panel and multimedia interface all within the same unit.

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is a child of technology, a child of the Renaulution. This will be the first model to be 100% ‘Made in ElectriCity’, Renault Group’s new industrial hub and European leader of EV vehicles located in the North of France. A truly French icon, the windscreen incorporates a rooster silhouette to symbolise the vehicle’s French origin and manufacturing.

Renault’s All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is the first of its Generation 2.0 electric vehicles and marks the beginning of a new chapter of the electric revolution started some 10 years ago. Connected to the EV ecosystem and the digital world of its users, the All-new Mégane E-Tech Electric symbolises the beginning of Renault wining ground in the compact vehicle market. The Mégane of the future is already here!

Much like a smartphone, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric merges seamlessly with the digital ecosystem of its user. It is a high-tech vehicle always ready to serve, thanks to its new OpenR display and OpenR Link multimedia system, developed with Google and based on Android Automotive OS. Each user's profile can thus be linked to their personal Google account for a more in-depth experience. In addition to Google Maps and the catalogue of Google Play apps, Google's built-in voice assistant and the My Renault app make using the car an interactive and proactive experience.

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is equipped with intelligent charging capabilities and, ultimately, it will be able to feed power back into the grid when needed thanks to vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology. Renault and the Group's new brand, Mobilize, have developed expertise in battery management (e.g., second life, recycling) that covers the entire life cycle and value chain.

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric does even more to protect the environment. All upholstery is made out of 100% recycled materials. Depending on the version, that accounts for up to 2.2kg. A total of 27.2 kg of visible and invisible parts are made out recycled plastics. 95% of the vehicle will be recycled at the end of its life.

The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric is the first model in the Renault range to benefit from all the Alliance's CMF-EV platform has to offer. This new benchmark platform is dedicated to all-electric vehicles and makes it easier to manufacture, develop, and optimise performance of each brand’s new-generation models.

Thanks to disruptive technology and batteries with greater capacity, the CMF-EV platform offers the opportunity to increase the energy efficiency and range of an electric car while reducing its charging time. The power and comfort when sitting behind the wheel are also greatly enhanced thanks to an overhaul of the chassis and steering systems and a lowered centre of gravity made possible thanks to the batteries mounted under the floor.
