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.

Interior

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.
