The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric includes the Fireman Access innovation that was born of a long-standing partnership between Renault Group and French firefighters. It adds a special access for rescue teams to utilise when trying to quickly douse a battery fire on an electric vehicle, meaning they can quench the flames in just 5 minutes as opposed to 1-3 hours it used to take. In addition, a switch located under the rear bench enables rescue teams to disconnect the battery from the vehicle.

A QR code is also affixed to the windscreen of the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric. It is intended for rescue teams who, by scanning it when responding to an accident, can quickly recognise that it is an electric vehicle. It also gives them access to the car’s structural information, for example, the location of the battery and airbags, places for quick and risk-free cutting.
