Introducing the Renault CLIO E-TECH Hybrid
Maximising electric driving and enjoyment, Renault's innovative and exclusive E-TECH technology has enabled them to develop two types of hybrid vehicles; the All-New CLIO E-TECH and the All-New CAPTUR E-TECH Plug-in.
A combination of hybrid performance and the adaptability of CLIO, the All-New CLIO E-TECH is the first hybrid model produced by Renault and benefits from 100% electric starting. Transitioning between the engine and full-electric mode is smooth and barely noticeable, providing a pleasant drive whether in the city or on the motorway.
With the CLIO consistently being a popular choice amongst UK drivers, the CLIO E-TECH Hybrid will without a doubt appeal to drivers looking for an eco-friendly, affordable hatchback.
Economy and Performance
The 138bhp E-TECH is the most powerful CLIO, yet still manages to emit only 98g/km of CO2 (WLTP) and returns impressive fuel economy of up to 64.2mpg (WLTP). Combining electric and combustion engines with an efficient automatic Multi-mode gearbox, the CLIO E-TECH consumes up to 40% less fuel compared to a conventional petrol engine when driving on the motorway or in the city. Due to being a full hybrid there's no range anxiety and no requirement to plug-in to charge.
Thanks to the instant responsiveness from its electric engines, drivers can enjoy speedy acceleration and 80% of city driving time with all-electric power. The new-generation 1.6-litre petrol engine is accompanied by two electric motors, a High-voltage Starter Generator (HSG) and an innovative, efficient multi-mode clutch-less gearbox.
Renault are experienced in the electrified vehicle field, due to their involvement in Formula 1, and they have developed a sophisticated way of managing the three power sources in order to offer a true electric experience for all.
Electric pleasure with no charging, as the CLIO E-TECH Hybrid is a full hybrid (HEV), there is no need to plug-in to charge the vehicle.
Regenerative braking, combined with the high charging capacity of the 1.2 kWh batteries and the efficiency of the E-TECH system, helps to optimise energy, whilst delivering significant reductions in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
