The All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric has been named the ‘Best Electric Hatch’ at the Top Gear Electric Awards 2022. Ahead of its launch in the UK later this year, the All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric scooped the prestigious award after impressing the Top Gear judges with its engaging drive, stylish appearance and quality feel.
On their decision to award the latest 100 per cent electric vehicle from Renault, the Top Gear judges commented: “The New Renault Mégane E-Tech is just so serene. The suspension takes on a magic as you get some speed under the wheels, it opens up and breathes beautifully. It’s quiet too, but it isn’t soggy. Sharp steering and rapid responses keep it alive to your direction. The powertrain is alert too – you’d expect that from a smallish electric hatch of 220bhp endowment. But frankly you might still want a Mégane even were its dynamics a metaphorical car crash. It looks great, muscular but not OTT, and the cabin is a lovely piece of work, another example of the way Renault has long overtaken the VW incumbency in material quality.”
The Top Gear Electric Awards were established in 2020 to celebrate the very best electrified cars the world has to offer. The award for ‘Best Electric Hatch’ follows the All-New Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric recently winning the ‘Family Hatch of the Year’ category in the Top Gear annual awards issue.
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 a 60kWh battery for up to 292 miles of range (WLTP). Multiple charging options are available up to 130kW for a faster turnaround, providing up to 186 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
Sporting Renault’s new logo, with a compact footprint and high-tech headlights, the All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric leads the way with its elegant design. Inside, the cabin delivers ample spaciousness with optimal comfort and Renault’s new OpenR Link technology. The All-New Mégane E-Tech Electric offers up to 26 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) bringing innovative safety systems and driver aids to the segment. This has also contributed to the forthcoming EV being awarded the maximum 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP.
