After way too much deliberation over what car to get and which spec, seeing the addition of the heat pump to the techno model (called techno+) at no extra cost was too good to be true (although it makes the iconic model look pretty expensive now - £2500 for different wheels, a 360 camera and better stereo?!)

Ordered in midnight blue with black roof. My first EV and my first experience largely doing everything online. Smooth so far, and the salesman says there is stock so it should be available in September.

Hey,
I ordered the normal techno version about 3 weeks ago, logged onto the website today and noticed the techno+ has suddenly appeared, wow what a deal (ish lol), for me trying to get a car on motorbility for the first time so dont know how long this takes.

The lower version techno was £995 advance payment where as the plus version was only £495 advance payment so obviously changed order straight away, surprised the dealer didnt tell me about it, get more of a car for less money so lucky I looked.

Fingers crossed will get it soon, well excited 🤗🤗🤗 x

I picked up my ceramic and black Iconic last week. First EV for me also and I have to say it's blown my mind. Like everyone else it's taken a while to set up the R Link system to how I wanted. I wish I found this forum beforehand. Unusually, I received no physical manuals for my car so that made it more difficult than it needed to be. I live next to the M1 so move around the city using the motorway all of the time. Self steering is very effective. I don't know how they do it but works so well. Hopefully your cars will arrive soon and you can enjoy one of the best EV's on the market.

TezTalks - great to hear.

We pickup our new Launch Edition on Friday (new registration day). Also in ceramic grey and black roof. I'm a bit worried about maintaining the black roof, particularly after birds mess strikes. Typically I've always found black roofs leave a cloudy mark, despite getting the birds mess off quickly.

I'm still not totally convinced about the gold F1 blade front and back, but as our car is being kept in the main showroom, it always delights to see it. They had a couple of Iconics outside in ceramic, and even in the daylight, they looked really good. All the colours are great.

I was very impressed with the two demonstrator Megane e-Techs that I drove, particularly with the radar cruise and lane keeping. Seemed very accurate.

I decided to chance it not having a heat pump - the LE not having it available as an option.

Our other car (an e2008 Peugeot) has a heat pump, so it'll be interesting seeing how the Megane performs. Living down South means we don't have a lot of really cold weather, so time will tell.

Looks like the heat pump is to be offered as standard on all versions. https://it.media.renaultgroup.com/evolv ... lity-life/
