GROUPE RENAULT RAMPS UP ITS ELECTRIFICATION STRATEGY WITH ITS REVOLUTIONARY E-TECH HYBRID TECHNOLOGY
Following their world première in January at the 2020 Brussels Motor Show, the 140 hp Clio E-TECH and 160 hp New Captur E-TECH Plug-in are now joined by the 160 hp Mégane E-TECH Plug-in.
These three full hybrid (Clio) and plug-in hybrid (Captur and Mégane) models are new additions to what is already the largest electrified vehicle range on the market, joining all-electric models like the New ZOE, New Twingo Z.E. and Kangoo Z.E. This new E-TECH hybrid line-up can adapt to any customer’s needs (long distance, urban multi-purpose, etc.) depending on the preferred technology, while limiting CO2 emissions and stemming fuel use, even for long trips. Having an accessible hybrid range for the core market means more people are going to experience the joys of driving an electric vehicle.
