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.

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.

New model is a serious step up from lacklustre predecessorLike the recently launched Clio, the Captur looks like a gentle evolution of the previous model but is, in fact, all-new.
