The all-new Renault Megane E-Tech will only be available as an electric car and, with prices expected to start around £35,000, it might just be an absolute bargain.
Renault has made it clear that the Megane E-Tech takes aim at the Volkswagen ID.3, a car built from the ground up to be an EV. And the French manufacturer has gone the same route with its new Megane E-Tech, which is not only features architecture that's bespoke for EVs but also comes with a battery that's 11cm in thickness - the thinnest on the market. Battery life is pretty decent, too, with entry-level 40kWh cars offering 186 miles of range while top-spec 60kWh cars up that to 292 miles. It's quick to charge, too, taking just 30 minutes to top up 186 miles on a 130kW charger (if you've got the bigger battery installed). Couple that with a Google-powered infotainment system and semi-autonomous driving modes, and you've got a very well-rounded EV.
