Renault has released details of two new electrified powertrains added to the Clio and Captur range, while also confirming that a plug-in hybrid Megane will soon be launched.

Updated Renault Megane gains plug-in hybrid and tech boost

  Updated Renault Megane gains plug-in hybrid and tech boost Revised Mégane will be joined by a dual-motor E-Tech variant, while RS 280 is dropped and 296bhp unit gets more torqueThe E-Tech PHEV follows on from the Captur crossover that uses the same system: a 1.6-litre petrol engine mated to two electric motors and a new, multi-mode clutchless transmission, which Renault claims offers "excellent efficiency and barely noticeable gearchanges".

"A pioneer of the small SUV market, the Renault Captur has sold 1.2 million units since its launch in 2013, rapidly becoming the best selling model in its

Discover the hybrid Renault E-TECH engine that will be fitted on the All- new Clio from 2020, it combines The Captur will be the first in its category (segment B, urban SUV) to feature a plug - in hybrid engine. This means it can be driven in 100% electric mode for several tens of kilometers!

Shown to visitors of the Brussels Motor Show, the two new models both feature the same ‘E-Tech’ branding, but have substantially different takes on the electrified powertrain.

The Clio, launched last year with traditional petrol and diesel engines, benefits from a “full hybrid” system - an innovative take on the proven parallel hybrid setup. Renault claims the tech is protected by around 150 patents.

It’s based around a multi-mode ‘DHT’ transmission, used to control a naturally-aspirated 1.6-litre petrol engine and two electric motors either simultaneously or independently. The battery is a relatively small 1.2kWh pack, meaning the car weighs just 10kg more than an equivalent Clio diesel.

Renault claims it can spend up to 80% of the time in electric mode on city roads, and is able to travel at up to 38mph without the engine running. Few figures are quoted, however, bar CO2 emissions claimed to be less than 100g/km and a 50-75mph time of 6.9sec.

Renault confirms Morphoz concept, Dacia EV for Geneva

  Renault confirms Morphoz concept, Dacia EV for Geneva French firm will showcase 'modular' concept that previews planned EV familyPreviewed by a single teaser image, the Morphoz is described as a “modular vehicle” that “adapts to the personal needs, desire and uses of each user.” Renault claims that the machine will illustrate the firm’s vision of “tomorrow’s mobility”, and previews a new family of electric vehicles that will arrive in the near-future.

The New Clio will be the first model of the group to offer the E-Tech hybrid engine, based on a technology developed by Renault . Outside and inside, it offers new customization options. It also benefits from the latest innovations in connectivity with the new Renault EASY CONNECT ecosystem.

So the plug - in hybrid version – the All- new Captur E-TECH Plug - in , a major first for Groupe Renault that will be sold from 2020 – had to match these same requirements. There was no question of creating some elitist version where the electric engine and battery power were geared towards performance.

The Captur E-Tech uses a plug-in hybrid system, mating the same 1.6-litre petrol engine and multi-mode gearbox setup to a larger 9.8kWh battery pack and 400v electrical system. That translates to a claimed all-electric range of 30 miles and a top speed in EV mode of 85mph. New driving modes also feature, including a Sport mode that allows both petrol and electric power to combine if there is enough charge.

In a mixed WLTP cycle, Renault claims the Captur E-Tech Plug-in manages up to 188mpg and emits 34g/km of CO2.

Both models also receive unique badging inside and out, as well as hybrid-specific display menus and graphics. They will be available to order in the UK in the coming weeks.

It's expensive, though, and will need to be more refined than this early prototype when it goes on sale in the autumnThere are several driving modes: Eco, which prioritises battery electric drive up to about 44mph if there is sufficient charge; Hybrid, which blends petrol and electric motors for maximum economy; and Sport, which priorities performance. In addition, there's a Brake setting on the gearlever, which increases electrical regeneration during throttle lift-off; and a kickdown throttle function, which brings all the power sources into play, suspending EV mode if it is selected.
