The new Mégane E-Tech Electric Renault in 2022 could present an electric SUV, or the new generation of the Kadjar with electric EV engine. This model could be anticipated by a plug-in hybrid version, similar to the Captur E-Tech.
Electric Renault Kadjar, how it will be
The new electric Renault Kadjar could inherit many technical characteristics from the Megane. The starting point would be the CMF-EV platform. Therefore it should be 4.7m long and have a wheelbase of up to 2,780mm. From an aesthetic point of view it will be very similar to the Megane, with the very thin front LED headlights.
There will also be flush door handles to reduce drag, with a smooth surface on the doors balanced by sharper lines at the front and bottom.
Inside the cockpit there will be more space and the new OpenR infotainment system based on Android Automotive will be installed, which offers a 12.3-inch digital dashboard and a 12-inch vertical touchscreen with software updates over the air.
