Renault has finally revealed, the Megane eVision which shall be in production by the end of 2021.
WOW is our initial take on the bold design, it certainly captures your attention by its futurist looks, a back to the future vibe for sure!
For all Megane lovers out there, no need to panic the eVision will not immediately replace the original Megane, it will remain on sale for some time after the EV’s launch.
The concept of the new eVision is a new design built on the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliances electric CMF-EV platform, which is also used for the Nissan Ariya large SUV.
The Mégane eVision features what Renault terms ‘slimline’ batteries, which are built into the structure of the CMF-EV platform. As is standard for an EV, the batteries are mounted under the floor. De Meo said the batteries are 11cm high, claiming this makes them “the flattest in the market”. He added: “It allows us to give [the concept] a sporty look and achieve very competitive aerodynamics.”
The concept has a 60kWh battery that can be fast-charged at rates of up to 130kW. De Meo, (The New CEO) claimed the car is capable of a range of 280 miles on WLTP. He added that there was “potential” to achieve a higher range in future. The 63kWh unit in the closely related but larger Ariya yields a range of around 223 miles.
The electric motor produces 215bhp and 221lb ft with power sent to the front wheels, so Renault claims a 0-62mph time of less than 8.0sec.
Renault calls the Mégane eVision a “dynamic hatchback” that features styling elements taken from city cars, SUVs and coupés. At 4210mm long, it’s slightly shorter than the current Mégane and the Ariya. It’s 1800mm wide and 1505mm high, while its wheelbase of 2700mm is almost identical to the Ariya’s. It weights 1650kg.
We cannot wait to see the final result of this stunning vehicle.
