Renault to start road tests of electric Megane

PARIS — Renault has released images of a lightly camouflaged pre-production version of the coming Megane full-electric compact car, which was shown in concept form last autumn as the Megane eVision.

The new Megane will be called the MeganE (pronounced as “Megane-E”), Renault said. It will be launched by the end of this year, and is scheduled to be shown at the Munich auto show in September.

A fleet of 30 pre-production vehicles with Renault-themed camouflage will be tested on public roads this summer, Renault said Tuesday.

The MeganE will have a 160-kilowatt electric motor and a 60-kilowatt-hour battery, with a range of 450 km (280 miles) on the WLTP scale, Renault said. It is based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance’s CMF-EV platform, which it will share with the Nissan Ariya SUV.

The MeganE, which is styled as a high-riding five-door hatchback rather than a crossover or SUV, will compete with a growing number of mainstream full-electric compact cars.
