Renault Megane Plug-In Hybrid hatch unveiled, with petrol and diesel engines set to be dropped

Date: 07 July 2021   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Renault has revealed a new hatchback version of its Megane Plug-In Hybrid, and also announced that petrol and diesel Meganes will be removed from the range.

The hatch is the second Plug-In Hybrid variant to join the lower-medium Megane range, following on from the Sport Tourer estate which arrived last year.

Like the estate, the Plug-In Hybrid hatch, badged E-Tech, features a 1.6-litre petrol engine and two electric motors, for a 160hp total output.

Official WLTP fuel economy and CO2 emissions figures will be 235.4mpg and 28g/km respectively.

Renault argues that the E-Tech powertrain is more powerful than the outgoing petrol and diesel engine options, while also comparing favourably on total cost of ownership.

Two equipment grades will be available - Iconic and R.S. Line. Standard equipment with Iconic will include 16in alloy wheels, a 7in touchscreen with sat-nav, Apple Carplay and Android Auto connectivity, cruise control with speed limiter, a 10in driver display, a hands-free key card, front and rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, traffic sign recognition, and automatic high-low beam.

Further equipment with R.S. Line will include R.S. Line bumpers, 17in alloy wheels, advanced emergency braking, a reversing camera, hands-free parking, and a larger 9.3in touchscreen.  

UK orders will open in August, with the first deliveries expected in September. Prices are yet to be announced.
