Want to go electric?

Renault makes it easy

When it comes to making the electric switch, there isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. Some drivers are ready to go all-electric right away, while others want to take a more gradual approach – starting with an efficient hybrid with no need to plug in.

But, no matter what stage you’re at in making the transition, it’s important to move at a pace that suits you and your lifestyle. That’s where the Renault E-Tech range is changing the game.

Built on more than a decade of electric expertise, the ever-expanding Renault E-Tech lineup is split into two distinct categories: 100% electric and self-charging full hybrid.

Both options bring different benefits, and choosing the right one for you will depend on your daily needs and driving habits. So, to help you make that decision, we’ve partnered with Renault to create this useful guide to start your electrified journey.

Renault E-Tech 100% electric

Renault ’s 100% electric models are for those who want a smoother and more responsive driving experience compared to internal combustion equivalents – all while enjoying the feel-good environmental and cost-saving benefits of zero tailpipe emissions[2].

Making the switch to 100% electric is a committed choice that requires subtle behaviour changes, mostly around fitting public and home charging into your da y.

The 100% electric Renault E-Tech range currently includes the Renault Megane family crossove r, the Renault Kangoo compact van and the capacious Renault Master large van. And, soon, the new Renault Scenic SUV and the head-turning, retro-inspired Renault 5 city car will join their ranks.

Renault E-Tech full hybrid Renault ’s self-charging full hybrid technology is for drivers who aren’t quite ready to make the switch to 100% electric, but instead want a stepping stone that brings many of the cost-saving benefits of electrified driving[1], blended with the go-anywhere flexibility of a petrol engine.

Renault ’s full hybrid system uses advanced regenerative braking to power a 400V battery, which works in harmony with an electric motor and a petrol engine to power the wheels. The result is improved performance and fewer trips to the pumps – all without the need to plug in.

The full hybrid Renault E-Tech range includes the Renault Clio city ca r, the Renault Captur crossove r, the Renault Austral SUV and the Renault Arkana coupé, with the new Renault Rafale SUV coupé set to land in early 2024.
