All-New Renault Megane E-Tech Electric is crowned Top Gear’s Family Hatch of the Year

The All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric has been named Top Gear’s ‘Family Hatch of the Year’ in its prestigious annual awards issue.

Following its unveiling at the IAA Munich Mobility Show 20221 in September, this is the first award for the All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric, ahead of its arrival in the UK in 2022.

Judges praised the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric for its engaging driving experience and practical design. Commenting on the win, Jack Rix, Editor for Top Gear Magazine, said, "The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric feels low and lithe to drive. It corners precisely, there’s little delay or roll. It’s about 100kg lighter than the VW ID.3, and feels agile with it. There’s a lot to like about its interior layout, trim and space priorities of its cabin too, as well as how it looks from the outside. Many electric cars are satisfying and sensible, the new Mégane is desirable too.”

The accolade was awarded to Renault during the online awards ceremony that was livestreamed on Top Gear’s website and YouTube channel on Tuesday, 30 November.

As the first of a new generation of electric vehicles to benefit from the advanced CMF-EV electric car platform, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric offers increased efficiency and range. The new model is available with two battery options: 40kWh for a range of up to 186 miles (WLTP), and 60kWh for up to 292 miles of range (WLTP). Multiple charging options are available, including DC charging up to 130kW for faster charging, providing up to 186 miles charge in just 30 minutes.

Sporting Renault’s new logo, with a compact footprint and high-tech lights, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric leads the way with its elegant design. Inside, the cabin offers record spaciousness with optimal comfort and Renault’s new OpenR screen technology. The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric offers no less than 26 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) bringing innovative safety systems and driver aids to the segment.

The All-New Renault Megane E-Tech 100% Electric will be available in the UK in 2022.  You can register your interest here.
