Series version gets 160 kW and a range of 450 km
The new Renault Megane will start in March 2022. Renault Germany announced this on Instagram. The press release on Tuesday (June 8th) only mentioned the year 2022. This means that the newcomer will probably only come onto the market after the Nissan Ariya, which is based on the same platform.
Even if the car bears the name Megane: In the pictures of a pre-series version in black, white and yellow camouflage that have now been published, the car looks like an SUV. Renault itself described the model as a crossover between SUV and hatchback model.
The car was already launched as a study eVision in October 2020 shown. The production model should be called Megane E-Tech Electric, as Renault now announces. "E-Tech" is the name of all electrified Renaults, including plug-in hybrids. Therefore the manufacturer adds "Electric". The electric Twingo is also named Twingo E-Tech Electric in the communication, and the Renault website sometimes even refers to the Zoe as Zoe E-Tech. The short version of the series name should be MeganE (pronounced: Megane e ").

The press release sorts the car under the "C-segment electric vehicles". With the car, Renault is supplementing its range of electric cars with the Twingo in the A segment and the Zoe in the B segment.
As already known, the new Megane E-Tech Electric is based on the CMF-EV platform (on which the Nissan Ariya is based, the market launch of which has just been postponed). The two cars are also visually similar:
Like the study and the Ariya basic version, the production car also has a 160 kW electric motor. The study also takes over the 60 kWh battery, and even the range specification of 450 kilometers according to the WLTP standard is retained.
The Z-shaped light signature that we had already taken into account in our rendering is also taken over from the study:
A first Erlkonig of the MeganE was seen in March, but it was probably a one-off. In the summer, 30 pre-production vehicles (in the rather high-pitched "camouflage" shown) are to be tested on public roads. The MeganE will then be built in the Douai plant (in northern France, around 20 km south of Lille).
The C-segment is particularly important for Renault. Already at the Renaulution press conference in January Luca de Meo (head of the Renault Group, to which Alpine and Dacia also belong, but not Nissan) spoke of the fact that the compact class should increase – apparently because there are higher profits than in the A and B segments. In the schedule, there is an electric car in the C-segment on the border between 2021 and 2022 – that should be the MeganE. In 2022 there will be an electric van (probably the Kangoo) and then in 2023 an electric car in the B segment (possibly a Zoe successor) and one in the C segment:
