Renault Mégane Grand tour, Plug-in Hybrid in the Test

Renault floats on an electro-wave. The Zoe sells admirably, and now also a Plug to rinse-in-Hybrid-money in the coffers. The French rely mainly on the Mégane E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid 160 Grand tour is a lot of hope, because the station wagon for the service of driver is interesting. The drive of the French PHEV Automobile is made up of three components. A 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with 67 kW / 92 PS and a maximum torque of 144 nm. A high-voltage Starter Generator (HSG-Generator) join with 25 kW / 34 HP and an electric motor with 49 kW / 67 HP. Overall, the Megane Grand tour E-Tech Plug makes-in Hybrid 116 kW / 158 HP, has a maximum torque of 205 Newton meters and is to consume according to the WLTP cycle is only 1.3 liters per 100 kilometers.

Renault promises a consumption of 1.3 litres

The transmission allows, according to Renault, a 15-minute stage combinations, including idle and should always have the right answer to the respective driving situation of Europe. Renault insists that it is a CVT-like transmission, which is related to that of the French car manufacturer in formula 1. This so-called Dog-Box transmission (in Renault parlance, "Multi-Mode") is especially compact and can represent a variety of Hybrid drive types: serial, parallel, and using only the internal combustion engine. This sophisticated Interplay also explains the powerful HSG-Generator that provides the synchronization of the transmission. In pure electric drive mode, two courses are available, only the burner is active, there are four and, consequently, in the hybrid mode, two-by-four driving levels. press-inform / Renault the Renault Mégane E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid

Interestingly, occur at a constant speed, the electrical components in the Background, and the glow sole command takes over. The plug for the gas tank is located on the Renault Megane to the right and the fuel filler on the left. We take on the driver's seat. Because the first gear is electric, the Start-up of the electric motor, the command and is doing well. In city traffic, you can keep up without problems, and on highways and country roads with a maximum speed of 135 km/h, no traffic obstruction. The capacity of the battery is 9.8 kilowatt-hours, which is supposed to be for a range of 50 kilometres (WLTP) to 65 kilometers (in city mode) well.

dynamics-expectations, do not hang too high

Our test drive led us over all types of roads and at the end of the on-Board computer showed a very moderate consumption of 1.2 liters per 100 kilometers and 14.5 kWh/100 km. The range hovered at 49 kilometers. The performances are in order: After 9.8 seconds, the Mégane breaks the 100 km/h and up to 183 km/h fast. Driving programs offer the usual fare: "My Sense" to optimize all systems to drive as efficiently as possible, in the case of "Pure" is the Mégane purely electrically on-the-go and in the case of "Sport" is supposed to be the journey as dynamic. However, it should be because the expectations too high, because the gear transmission, its relationship to the CVT does not quite deny, and so the dynamics, not the best grades earned. Especially at higher speeds, the characteristic Yelps, but no convincing threading sounds. press-inform / Renault, The Cockpit is uncluttered and the operation of catchy

On the chassis does not fail the agility. It is well balanced, not too soft tuned and copes with the weight of the Mégane of 1.678 kg, including 105 kg of accounts for the battery, well. Speaking of batteries: A real "Load"mode, in which the gas fills the battery, not the Mégane. The "E-Save" program keeps the Status quo and the state of charge of the battery at 40 percent. Who wants to help, to pump current into the cells, using the B-mode with the maximum recuperation. With a little foresight you can avoid the use of the mechanical brake.

The interior of the Mégane is occupied is quite pleasing and not too playful. The processing is in order, even if some of the switches and levers, could less and less tolerate the hard plastic feel. The Infotainment and the operation, which takes place mainly through the 9.3-inch Tablet, we liked, as they give up no big mystery. The sub-items of the menus are logical and with just a few steps you get to the target. The driving map will be displayed on a 10.2-inch screen. A Head-up Display with a retractable screen, which provides the driver with the most important information is yet to come.

proposes to place the Mégane offers at the front enough. The Luggage compartment has a volume of 389 to 1.372 litres. On the loading floor of the Mégane estate offers the same trunk space as the conventional model (389 liters), under the load compartment is the 39-litre fuel tank, while the battery is placed under the rear seat. This also explains the high Seating position in the back, which is 1.85 meters body size around the head closely. Only the price remains to the end. Cheap the Streamers with the Mégane is not: at Least 34.107,90 euros you have to shell out, and the driven "RS-Line"equipment variant costs 38.202,01 Euro.
