As a pioneer of electric vehicles, Renault worked alongside the Renault F1 Team to engineer their innovative and exclusive E-TECH engine. With some150 patents to its name, it paved the way for two new engine types: full-hybrid and plug-in hybrid.  

Equipped with two electric motors, an EV battery, and an intelligent gearbox, MEGANE E-TECH Plug-In hybrid makes optimal use of all available energy sources (electric and combustion motors) for extra comfort behind the wheel and record-breaking CO2 emissions and fuel economy. 


The All-New MEGANE has an all-new design with a more ergonomic and modernized interior, as well as the best connectivity, multimedia, and driver-assistance systems around. 

Following on from the Wagon, the MEGANE Hatchback range now also includes the 160hp E-TECH Plug-In Hybrid engine. An engine with optimal versatility it offers a new driving experience and unique fuel efficiency. 

Powered by a 9.8 kWh battery and two electric motors, the 1.6L four-cylinder engine can run up to 50km in combined cycle (WLTP) and up to 65km in urban cycle (WLTP). Therein lies the true versatility of MEGANE E-TECH Plug-In Hybrid: it can run as a full-electric vehicle for your daily commute, and still take you further afield for weekend getaways and vacations.
