More Renault E-Tech hybrid models

Plug-in hybrid variant for the Mégane

Renault Captur 2021 E-Tech Hybrid

Renault Captur E-Tech hybrid

Renault completes the hybrid range with three new E-Tech models, Mégane, Captur and Arkana. The brand uses various hybrid drive technologies for this.

Renault is accelerating the electrification of the range and introduces three new E-Tech variants at once. A plug-less hybrid had already been announced for the next year’s Renault Arkana. In addition, the French brand announces that it also uses a 12 Volt ‘micro-hybrid’ start / stop system for the 1.3 TCe engines of 140 and 160 hp.

The plug-in hybrid version of the Megane hatchback is completely new. Two electric motors, a combustion engine and a clutchless transmission make it possible to drive up to approximately 50 km purely electrically at speeds of up to 135 km / h (according to the WLTP test). The system power is 160 hp, the capacity of the battery at 9.8 kWh. This PHEV will appear next year together with the renewed Mégane.

The Renault Captur, which can already be ordered as an E-Tech plug-in hybrid, now also has a plug-less variant. The regular Captur E-Tech Hybrid can still drive fully electrically without having to recharge. As with the Arkana, a 1.2 kWh battery supports the fuel engine. The combined power is 140 hp.

Captur RS Line

The petrol version Captur 1.3 TCe will now also be available with the 12V start / stop system. Renault is also adding the sporty RS Line version to the Captur range. This top version is available with several motorisations. Newly designed bumpers, an F1 front spoiler and exclusive alloy wheels make it recognizable. Renault provides the interior with special upholstery, carbon look and aluminum accents, red stitching on the steering wheel and a black headliner.
