Confirmed – Renault Megane Hybrid image

The new generation of the Renault Megane will be introduced with a “green” hybrid version in the near future.

The 2016 Renault Megane is enjoying a successful launch as the model has been welcomed by the audience attending the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, where this has made its public debut recently. But if you believed that the RS range-topping version is the only one missing from the lineup, think again, because the French based brand is also planning to introduce a hybrid too.

According to the guys from AutoEvolution, who are quoting sources within the company, the Renault Megane Hybrid will be making use of a dCi diesel engine and it will probably receive the ECO2 badge. This version of the compact car will get better energy management, a larger battery and regenerative braking, amongst others. Chances are it will be emitting just 76 g/km of CO2 and it will eat less than 3L of fuel every 100km. Details on its full range or electric power range, as well as the total output and performance, are not known at this point but this is believed to be introduced sometimes in 2017 and more info on it will most likely be announced then.

Meanwhile we will remind you that the 2016 Renault Megane is bringing a completely different body, with new front and rear fascias, with a muscular profile, LED taillights with 3D graphics, R-Link 2 infotainment system with an 8.7-inch touch screen display, a 7-inch TFT instrument cluster display and a longer wheelbase compared to its predecessor. At the time of its launch, the vehicle will be offered with three petrol burners, the TCe 100, TCe 130 and TCe 205, along with three diesel units, the dCi 90, the dCi 110 and the dCi 130.
