INSPIRED BY RENAULT F1® TEAM
Drawing on knowledge gained from the Renault F1® Team, E-TECH’s Energy Smart Management system finds the best power/driving combination for you. Energy regeneration effectively recovers losses during braking and deceleration. While the petrol engine is working at its maximum efficiency, the extra-energy generated is used to reload its fast recovering battery.
Thanks to an innovative clutchless transmission, also based on Renault F1® Team derived technology, friction losses are reduced for better efficiency and driving range.
E-TECH technology is offered with 2 options depending on the models : E-TECH hybrid with self-charging battery for CLIO and E-TECH Plug-in for CAPTUR.
