Renault Megane electrified range to be expanded with new Hatch Plug-in Hybrid

Renault is strengthening its electrified vehicle offering in the UK with the announcement of the Renault Megane Hatch Plug-In Hybrid, the new five-door model complementing the Sports Tourer version that is already available with the advanced powertrain.

The Megane Hatch Plug-In Hybrid will be available to order from August, with the first UK customers set to take delivery in September. At the same time, and in line with its electrification strategy for the Megane, Renault will remove petrol and diesel versions of the Hatch and Sports Tourer.

Customers will be able to choose from two well-equipped trim levels – the Iconic E-Tech Plug-In Hybrid 160 Auto and the sporty R.S. Line E-Tech Plug-In Hybrid 160 Auto. Both versions feature an efficient 1.6-litre petrol engine complemented by a 65hp (49kW) electric motor, resulting in combined fuel economy of 235.4mpg (WLTP) and CO2 emissions of only 28g/km (WLTP). Efficiency isn’t to the detriment of performance either, the 160hp drivetrain enabling a 0-62mph time of 9.4 seconds and a top speed of 114mph.

The Megane Hatch Plug-In Hybrid uses the same technology that debuted on the Clio E-Tech hybrid, which was engineered with input from the Alpine F1 team. It combines a 1.6-litre petrol engine with a 1.2kW lithium-ion battery and two electric motors, together with the automatic, multi-mode dog gearbox that features in all other E-Tech models. In operation, it starts the vehicle in 100 per cent electric mode, significantly reducing the gap in acceleration during gear changes. This means a smoother, more refined drive plus better performance.

When combined with the other hybrid and 100 per cent electric vehicles in the Renault passenger car range, the addition of the Megane Hatch Plug-In Hybrid means Renault now offers an electrified option to suit everyone. 

Further details and pricing will be announced nearer to the on-sale date.
