What will the Renault Megane look like when it switches to electricity?November 27, 2020
Introducing exclusive images of the fifth generation model.
In the quarter of a century that have passed since the original Renault Megane was released, four generations have changed. The current car made its debut in 2016, that is, it is still too early for it to retire, but the manufacturer has already confirmed that the successor will appear in 2021.
And he even showed how it would look – using the example of the Megane eVision concept, which turned out to be completely electric. And now the Motor1 designer tried to imagine how the appearance of the car evolves from a show car to a production model.
Like most purebred electric vehicles, the Renault Megane eVision has a dull faceplate. In our exclusive renders, the artist added gratings to it and reimagined diode lighting in a more traditional way. Wide wheel arches with 20-inch rims and plastic body kit are generally consistent with the style of the concept, but also look more realistic.
Renault said the next Megane will be just 4.21 meters long, 15 centimeters shorter than the current one, while still boasting a more spacious interior. The car will be built on the CMF-EV platform developed specifically for electric vehicles – the same as that of the Nissan Ariya crossover. Most likely, for some time, the new Megane will be sold not instead of, but together with the fourth generation hatchback, but there is no confirmed data on this yet.
As there is no information about the range of the electric car. About the concept, they said that it received a single 217-horsepower electric motor on the front axle, allowing it to accelerate to 100 km / h in less than 8 seconds, and a 60 kilowatt-hour battery with support for 130 kilowatt charging.
