Aware that the rules of the automobile industry have changed, Renault has entered a new stage, and the bet is clearly electric. That is why the brand has christened the name “eVision” prototype of the future Mégane, that will be provided with this technology.
With a size of 4.21 meters (compared to 4.35 meters in the current Mégane), a width of 1.8 meters and a height of 1.5, Renault promises much more space, dynamism and technology. Part of the “fault” is on the new CMF-EV modular platform, which will be the basis of this and many other models thanks to the 2.77 meters of maximum wheelbase and the ease of incorporating one or even two electric motors, much more compact than thermal ones. That, coupled with lighter and thinner underfloor batteries, will make possible a huge use of space in the new electrical creations of Renault, as well as a better distribution of weights.
As can be seen in the images, the design of the Mégane eVision is bold and different. It certainly looks like a car larger than the 4.21 meters in length. The silhouette is that of a compact crossover type, with very robust forms that are mainly reflected in the domed hood and widened wheel arches. The 20-inch aerodynamic design wheels and the elongated optics do the rest, but the most distinctive are the resources and shapes of the LED lights, which illuminate even the Renault logo on the sides and the outline on the front or rear. And is that the brand has given so much importance to lights that it has created the concept “Livinglights” to personalize when and how they light up, also indoors.
Precisely inside at the moment we do not have images, but we do know that digitization and screens will keep the minimum of superfluous elements and that every inch will be used for the greatest comfort of the occupants.
Regarding the electric motor, it will have a quite important power, 169 kW (the equivalent of 217 horses), which will allow the future Mégane to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in less than 8 seconds. The motor It will be associated with a battery with 60 kWh capacity. No autonomy data has been revealed, but we predict, without fear of being wrong, that it will easily exceed 400 km.
