By this time, the French want to produce nine cars out of ten with electrified power plants. This is a pretty serious claim for leadership in this area.

By 2025, Renault is going to release seven electric cars belonging to the C and D segments. Such plans are shared by the press service of the French automaker. The Renault Arkana E-Tech Hybrid will be the first to be released, which has already fallen in love with Renault fans: more than 6,000 Europeans have booked the novelty.

But the “live” sales of the coupe-like crossover with a hybrid system will begin in June. Not far off is the debut of the new generation Megane E-Tech Electric electric SUV. At the same time, the brand continues to supply its popular models with hybrid versions. For this, the French are actively using modern hybrid technology E-Tech.

A year ago, it was tested on three bestsellers of the brand: the Renault Clio E-Tech hatchback, the Captur E-Tech Plug-in SUV and the Megane E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid station wagon. In 2021, three more models were added to this list. These are the hybrid “Arcana” and “Captur”, as well as the plug-in hybrid sedan Megane.

At the same time, the French are planning to actively develop their unique technology. So hybrid modifications of E-Tech will receive the next generations of Renault models.
In general, Renault has quite a lot of experience in terms of electrification, which gives the company every right to be called a leader in this promising area in Europe.

In the European car market, about 25% of all Renault cars sold are hybrids or electric cars.

Previously, AutoTImesNews said that Renault will release a new electric car Megane E-Tech Electric at the end of 2021. Outwardly, it will be 95 percent similar to last year’s concept car.
