Renault Kadjar in the future also partially electrified as plug-in hybrid on the road-renault

In the coming year, Renault’s best selling SUV, the Renault Kadjar, is transferred to its second generation. This is not only able to expect an upgrade in terms of quality and technology, the drive also takes on Renault. In the future, the Kadjar should come on the road with gasoline, diesel, hybrid and plug-in hybrid drive. As with the new Clio and Captur, Renault is not expected to remove too far from the current optical approach. Rather, optically only slight changes are expected.

In the interior you can assume that the new Kadjar will be dominated by a touchscreen – large and high-format in the top models – which does not finish flush with the center console. Ambient lighting and more elegant equipment options for the higher priced variants is also planned. Only recently, we reported that the Nissan-Renault-Mitsubishi Alliance strengthens cooperation in the E-Auto area. The Kadjar knows how to underline this as this will use the same modular CMF-C platform, as the next Nissan Qashqai and Mitsubishi Outlander, both expected in 2021.

The undercarriage is adapted to today’s Kadjar so that all forms of hybrid drive can be used as the Qashqai. This means that in addition to plug-in hybrid drive strands, there will also be mild hybrid options for the regular engine palette. Currently remains to be seen whether Renault Nissan will also follow in Puncto diesel drive. With the new Qashqai these were completely painted. However, given the three diesel options in the new capur, this is unlikely.

The Hybrid Direction of Renault is different from that of the Rival Peugeot with its 3008, which is now available with a plug-in hybrid powertrain with four-wheel drive and nearly 300 hp. Instead, it will tackle the cost-effective end of the market, first with a variant of the Capture E-Tech system, in which a 1.6-liter gasoline engine with an electric motor and a 9.8 kWh battery for around 160 hp and 188 MPG is combined. Renault could also use the parallel hybrid powertrain of the Clio E-Tech. Currently, it is believed that the new Kadjar is presented in the second half of 2021 and the sale will start this year.
