Renault is reducing the price of its EVs

Renault previously announced that it plans to launch seven new electric cars by the end of the decade, in an effort to return to the throne on the domestic market in the segment of electric vehicles. The compact hatchback Renault Megane E-Tech with a lower price thanks to a government subsidy could help them in this.

In an interview with Reuters, Renault sales director for France Ivan Segal said: “The main focus of the Renault brand in 2024 is to go back on the offensive in the electric vehicle segment, since we are currently second.”

The French carmaker is currently third in the domestic market with almost 18,000 electric Meganes sold last year, while other manufacturers have achieved much better results. Tesla has sold 25,000 Tesla Model 3s and more than 37,000 Model Ys, and is the leader in the French electric vehicle market. The second is the Chinese brand MG, which sold 20,000 units of the MG4 compact hatchback in its first year on the French market.

Renault’s response in the effort to regain the position of the largest car seller in France will be the electric SUV Scenic and the electric Renault 5, which is expected in the summer. Also, the reduction in the price of electric cars (subsidy) should contribute to this, making them more accessible to a larger number of customers compared to the main competitors (Tesla and MG). Now the price of the Megane E-Tech will be 34,000 euros, or 29,000 euros with the subsidy.

Megane E-Tech is based on the CMF-EV platform and is powered by an electric motor with 218 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque. It is equipped with a 60 kWh battery that enables a range of 280 miles (450 km).

2024 Renault Scenic E-Tech

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.
