PARIS: Renault is entering a new chapter in its history with the Mégane eVision which is currently a show-car but one that showcases the brand's latest line of electric vehicles and is set for release in 2021.

The Mégane eVision is based on the its new modular CMF-EV platform which features a smaller engine compartment, one of the thinnest batteries in the market and a new compact powertrain to offer more space and roominess.

Its sophisticated looks coupled with the eye-catching lighting signature of its headlamps is bound to be one of the most attractive EV hatchbacks in the market.



Renault also claims the the ultra-thin battery of the eVision significantly reduces electric consumption and allows for faster charging times. And best of all, it promises an optimised driving range.

"Thanks to our barnd-new Alliance platform CMF-EV, we broke the rules of size, use, design and energy efficiency to imagine the Mégane eVision show-car. With the thinnest battery on the market, a 4.21 meters compact body offering the roominess of a C-segment vehicle, the Mégane eVision is a masterpiece of packaging!

"We took our 25-year bestseller and took it to the future. This is just the beginning; a whole new generation of innovation-packed electric vehicles is to come," said chief operating officer Groupe Renault, Luca De Meo.

Renault's future all-electric vehicles will be built on the CMF-EV platform which was designed by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.
