In 1991, Renault presented a new concept car, the Renault S.C.E.N.I.C, and five years later this multi-purpose vehicle entered production. After four successful generations, the French car manufacturer decided to present the fifth generation but as an electric SUV, the Renault Scenic E-Tech.
With a length of 4.47 meters, a width of 1.86 m, a height of 1,571, it has a wheelbase of 2.78 m, which is 10 cm longer than the Megane E-Tech. Environmentally sustainable materials were used in the construction, while the natural leather in the cabin was completely removed. 24% of the materials are recycled, including the bonnet which is made from 80% recycled aluminium.
Inside, there is a new 12.3-inch digital instrument panel, and a 12-inch centrally located screen with OpenR Link multimedia system. The extremely spacious car offers 545 liters of luggage space, or 1,670 liters with the rear bench folded down. The Android Automotive OS 12 operating system is also standard, so passengers will be able to use more than 50 Google applications.
When it comes to the powertrain, buyers will be able to choose between two versions with 170 hp (125 kW) and 206 lb-ft (280 Nm) of torque, and 220 hp (162 kW) and 221 lb-ft (300 Nm) of torque moment. More importantly, the Scenic E-Tech will be offered with two types of batteries: a 60 kWh battery that provides a range of 420 km and an 87 kWh battery for a range of 620 km. Thanks to the 150 kW rapid charger, a 30-minute charge enables two hours of driving.
