Renault Megane E-Tech was also introduced in Hungary

The full name of E-Tech 100% Electric anyway, but more importantly, what it knows and how much it costs.

Reanult wasn’t in a hurry to launch his third all-electric car after Zoe and Kangoo, but that might not be a problem in the sense that Zoe is still very sought after and popular, and Megane E-Tech has been waiting a long time for it. the technology finds solutions to many previous problems. One of these is the weight of electric cars, there is no redemption here either, but the battery pack supplied by LG is extremely thin and light, Reanult says the smaller battery Megane E-Tech is barely heavier than a ton and a half, which is 100-150 kilograms lighter than the competing models of similar size and range.

Although its name is Megane, it has zero to do with the internal combustion Megane models and is loaded on a brand new platform specifically designed for the electric powertrain, this CMF-EV is designed for mid-range models with both front and rear wheels as well as combined drive. and the wheelbase is larger than the current Megane, while the length of the car is shorter. The wheels have been pushed into the corners, the supply of space based on the first rehearsals is very generous, absolutely suitable for a family car based on the dimensions of the Megane E-Tech. Another issue is that even the basic model rolls on 18 inches, there are already 20 wheels for higher equipment, but replacing them will not be so family-friendly.

The chassis has received a multilink suspension, a more direct transmission has been praised by the government, and the driving experience has been praised by the manufacturer’s speakers, but this will soon be judged more by our own experience. On the other hand, it is certain that at first the car will be available with a 220 hp engine equipped with a thicker 60 kWh battery pack, the smaller 40 kWh, 130 hp version will be available by the end of the year. This means WLTP ranges of 450 and 300 kilometers, a larger battery has a 130 kW DC charge, and a smaller capacity can draw 80 kW, but perhaps more importantly, both versions include a 22 kW onboard base. charger, that is, the car can absorb so much AC, which is still unique in the industry, only Renault, or Smart, which uses the company’s electronics, can do so. And there are quite a lot of 22 kW AC charging points in the country, with other cars chirping 11 kW at best and 7.4 kW at less, and Megane E-Tech foams electricity compared to them.

Inside, then, the infotainment system of two displays smiles, with the climate panel as the remaining operating button with physical buttons, 12 inches in front of the driver, and the center console solution with 9 inches in the base model and also 12 inches in the better-equipped versions. What is common is that the system is Android Automotive OS, currently with version 10, and the underlying hardware is provided by Qualcomm, so the interface is extremely fast and responsive, you can’t go wrong and the solutions known from the Android phone release are coming back. It’s terrific to handle, 12 inches Google Maps is also quite spectacular (also prepared to plan recharging points depending on the condition of the battery), but the consistency is not perfect, because in Hungary the data traffic of the Orange SIM card in the car is limited. is provided for OTA updates and Maps data only. While the Android Automotive OS has a Play Store, you could even share the net as a hotspot, instead it is the other way around: we’re giving WiFi from our phone to the car.

Google’s in-car system debuted in Volvo a few years ago, but several manufacturers (such as Ford) have already behind the platform, and it simply seems that carmakers can’t put together a better system even if they crash (the VW Group is also struggling). , Tesla is obviously an exception, so it ‘s easier for everyone to be entrusted with the job. And the Android Automotive OS is ready and allows manufacturers some customization, and it’s no coincidence that Apple’s CarPlay will change radically in the near future to not only be a projected phone interface, but to be integrated into other features of the car. Of course, the presence of Android in Megane E-Tech doesn’t mean we don’t have an option with iPhones, the traditional CarPlay is just as accessible as Android Auto.

There are 26 types of driving assistance in the car (board recognition, adaptive cruise control, parking assist, lane departure warning system, 360-degree camera, etc.) and the center mirror is camera, meaning the sensor is behind the rear windscreen in the rear of the car. Hopefully this won’t be dirty, we watched the rear wiper clean there too, the rear seats don’t obscure the view, and in the evening it dims the headlights for those behind us better. We can switch to normal mirror mode in one go, but the rear windshield is really very tight, barely showing anything like that from the underlying traffic.

Megane E-Tech has been pre-ordered since February, with the first pieces coming to owners in the fall. With the smallest battery and the most puritanical equipment, the price of the car will be below 15 million forints, but this can be gymnasted around 18 million forints, and by checking out additional extras, the amount can be pushed up to 20 million forints. amount to something that charges quickly enough for even large families, runs on Android Automotive OS, and its range brings the industry average with even a slightly smaller battery pack.
