Renault Mégane eVision Boasts Range-Topping Power

Renault has unveiled one of the most powerful cars in its passenger range in the shape of its concept Renault Mégane eVision.

Boasting 213bhp from its single front axle mounted electric motor it also claims and 221ft-lbs of torque, enough to deliver acceleration from 0-62mph in under eight seconds. Its beefy 60kWh battery is equipped with DC charging (up to 130kW), promising a good range albeit the automaker has yet to make any definitive claims.

While the battery is powerful, it is also claimed to be among the thinnest on the market coupled with the compact single motor design allowing its CMF-EV platform to claim a spacious interior in a car with a footprint of just 13.77-feet. Aerodynamics feature large on any BEV and here Mégane eVision employs large aero wheels, a sporty spoiler and aluminum diffuser.

At the front, it features air inlets located on the lower part of the front fascia, smooth, flush grilles are fitted on the lower part of the front end and on the sides of the vehicle, while side air scoops on the lower part of the front bumper create an air curtain and promote aerodynamic flow around the wheel arches.
