2020 Renault Megane
The E-Tech PHEV follows on from the Captur crossover that uses the same system: a 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to two electric motors and a new, multi-mode clutchless transmission, which Renault claims offers “excellent efficiency and barely noticeable gearchanges”.
Making 158bhp, the system features a 9.8kWh, 400V battery that allows a range of about 31 miles, and the ability to travel at up to 84mph, on electric power alone. It will be offered first on the estate, with a hatchback being launched later. No economy figures are quoted at this stage.
