All-new Renault Mégane E-TECH Electric unveiled at the IAA Mobility Show 2021

KUALA LUMPUR: Renault started a new chapter of its electric revolution by introducing the all-new Mégane E-TECH Electric at the IAA Mobility Show 2021. According to the Japanese carmaker, the model is driven by the Renaulution strategy and Renault’s latest ‘Nouvelle Vague’ that aims for leading the energy transition in the world.

The EV is based on the MORPHOZ concept car, which Renault first showcased in 2019, and then previewed in the form of the Mégane eVision show car in 2020. The compact hatchback underpins the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance's dedicated 'CMF-EV' electric architecture and boasts a sleek and elegant style.

The EV sports a ‘Nouvel'R’ logo symbolizing the brand's transformation. Renault says, “it symbolizes how the core of the market is being revolutionised, represents a gigantic leap forward in all aspects, and is exciting to see and to drive each and every time.”

The automaker also calls the new Mégane E-TECH Electric - a child of the Renaulution, which personifies that it is the first model 100% ‘Made in ElectriCity’ i.e. Renault Group’s new industrial hub located in the North of France.
