Both inside and out, the Megane E-Tech is impressive. The striking exterior makes it feel like a full departure from its combustion engine predecessors, with ample easy-to-use tech inside a really solid interior gives the E-Tech a premium feel. Not bad for a car that slots into the mid-range EV market. Its two battery options add some flexibility, too, letting you pick a model suited to your travel needs.


The Megane E-Tech has an elevated interior, both thanks to its layout and the tech it uses. A balance of buttons and large touch screens makes the infotainment and driving features easy to use, and nice materials as standard make the cabin a lovely place to be. The tech’s great, too. A Google-based system runs the show, including Google Maps and Spotify built in. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also come as standard.

What is your estimated range based on?

We take real world range from EV database, which combines the predicted range of an EV in cold weather with the predicted range of an EV driving in warm weather.

For cold weather, this assumes it’s -10 degrees celsius with heating on. For warmer weather, it’s based on 23 degrees celsius and there’s no A/C on.

Predicting exact range is tricky, and range will depend on speed, style of driving, weather conditions and route conditions.

What affects EV range?

Many things can impact the range you get in your EV, there are outside factors and ones you can control or mitigate. Temperature (both of the car and outside environment), your driving style, weather, the surfaces you drive on and the spec of your car can all make a difference to your actual range.
