The Megan E-Tech will be Renault's first vehicle based on the new CMF-EV platform. This is the same platform on which the Nissan Ariya is already based and which was developed for all new electric models of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance. With the model, the French are targeting the Volkswagen ID.4.

The Renault Megan E-Tech is likely to be of the same size of Captur which is slightly longer than four metres.

Renault's Design director Gilles Vidal also gave an overview of the dashboard inside the SUV. It will get L-shaped screens, forming a continuity between the digital instrumentation and the central console. The Megane E-Tech will also be the first Renault car to feature a new infotainment system based on Google services.

The Renault Megane E-Tech is likely to have an electric motor developing about 217 hp of power and peak torque of 300 Nm. Renault claims it can do zero to 100 kmph in less than 8 seconds. This unit will be powered by a 60 kWh battery which will provide approximately 450 km of range on single charge.
