The Megane eVision concept is based on Renault’s new CMF-EV platform, which Renault hopes to use in its latest electric offensive. Megane will be the first to hit the streets under a production version and may not be very far from the prototype showcased on Thursday.

This new platform offers a 2,700 mm wheelbase, housing a battery with a 60 kWh capacity working at 400v under the floor, which will mean talking about more than 400 km of electrical autonomy under the WLTP cycle. Renault also claims to have the thinnest battery on the market, which makes it easy to install in the floor and lower the car's centre of gravity.
