E-Tech Engineered Special Editions For Renault's Hybrid Models

Author: |

Renault has introduced the E-Tech engineered special edition for the Clio, Captur, Arkana, and Megane electrified models. The stylistic cues of the E-Tech engineered special editions are inspired by the new, completely electric Megane E-Tech. The electrified powertrain is a common feature of the chosen vehicles.

Warm Titanium highlights on the front bumper, side sills, side gills, rear diffuser, and exhaust pipes, as well as a distinctive label on the front fenders and a matching E-tech emblem on the tailgate, are all available on these vehicles.

The Renault symbol and writing on the back, as well as the grille and bumper intakes, are all completed in black. The dynamic attitude is enhanced by a sleek set of five-spoke alloy wheels.


All vehicles have a gray exterior shade inside, but Renault says they will be available in a variety of hues. Warm Titanium stitching can be found on the seats, doors, and steering wheel, which matches the dashboard trim pieces. The letter E is emblazoned on the steering wheel, while "E-Tech Engineered" writing is emblazoned on the door sills.

The new Megane E-Tech is based on the Nissan Ariya's CMF-EV platform and electric motor and comes in 129 hp and 215 hp versions. According to Renault, the entry-level 40 kWh battery pack has a WLTP range of 299 kilometers, while the larger 60 kWh battery pack has a range of up to 470 kilometers.

Special Editions

The Captur E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid can travel 50 kilometers in pure electric mode in mixed consumption (WLTP) and reach a top speed of 135 kilometers per hour in EV mode. A 9.8 kWh battery pack, two electric motors, a new-generation 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, and a multi-mode clutchless hybrid gearbox make this feasible.


In the mixed cycle, the Captur E-Tech is predicted to consume 1.5 liters per 100 kilometers and produce 34 grams of CO2/km.

The Clio, Arkana, and Megane special versions engineered by E-Tech are now available in their home market of France, with the Captur to follow at a later date.
