Renault Megane e-Tech Review: Best EV Family Car?

The Renault Megane E Tech is a result of Renault’s struggles to deliver something memorable in the market.



One cannot deny that Renault EVs are trailblazers in the market. We’ve seen groundbreaking technology at play in its two models: Zoe and Twizy. The former continues to sell in numbers in Europe, and the latter was a huge step forward for its pioneering battery technology. The EV market may be saturated with vehicles from Honda, Fiat, and Peugeot, but Renault takes the front seat when it comes to Europe’s best-selling electric vehicles. The Renault Megane E Tech is the French carmaker’s latest entrant into the market, and we can’t help but wonder what’s it like. 

Is the Renault Megane E Tech merely a battery version of the family hatchback? Is this super-stylish EV an all-rounder? What about the futuristic detailing under the hood? Will Renault deliver again? We find out in this Renault Megane E-Tech review. But first, let’s take a short history lesson.

Renault: A World Leader in EVs

Renault Megane E Tech Review

The French carmaker has been hard at work, and the new CEO Luca De Meo has stated that a transformation will take place within the company. The Renault team is developing new electric vehicles, and the recent Nissan Renault partnership should help overcome a few barriers. 

The Renault Megane E Tech is a result of Renault’s struggles to deliver something memorable to the market. This car has top-notch quality that could give the Volkswagen ID.3 a run for its money. 

Renault Megane e-Tech Design

The Renault Megane E-Tech is not just the electric version of the well-known Megane, which is an evergreen family hatch. The new Megane E-Tech is a completely new, family-friendly SUV. It is 4.2 meters long, and the battery in this car is only 11 cm thick, which significantly affects the design of the vehicle. 

The overall exterior is futuristic, and there are some very cleverly designed details in the front bumper that give the vehicle a very unique look. At the same time, there are shallow headlight strips that also affect the futuristic design of the car

This Megane E-interior Tech is spectacular in many ways. Many digital instruments, digital switches, and a big vertical touch screen are all present. Google’s operating system underpins the overall navigation and infotainment.

Passengers in the back seat have plenty of room. There is enough space thanks to the flat floor, and this Megane promises to be an excellent family car. The thin battery design allows for up to 440 liters of luggage capacity, and the floor is wide and low.

Batteries and charging

The new Megane E-Tech will come in two versions, with 40 kWh and 60 kWh battery options. Both options will be available in the most relevant markets. We still do not know why Renault did not develop the more advanced 800-volt system of charging. Instead, they use the slower 400-volt system, and they miss the trends in the EV market.

When it comes to efficiency, Renault claims that they have developed a modern approach. The navigation depends on the traffic flow and topography, while the battery has the perfect temperature before charging. At the same time, Renault claims that its interior air conditioning and battery cooling systems are among the best on the market. 

Overall experience in driving 

You will be able to drive Megan from 0 to 62 mph in just 7.2 seconds. This is a good result for a car that has a battery, and Renault succeeded in making a car with great maneuvering ability. This is also possible thanks to the lightness of this car. With only 1,650 kg, the car can be driven easily and can offer a great driving experience. 

At the end of this Renault Megane Hybrid review, it’s important to note that the car’s debut date is set for late 2022, which may come as a disappointment to some consumers. However, we’ll have to wait and see if this strategy is appealing enough to justify the investment.
