If you’ve always fancied your chances against some of the biggest stars in motor racing, now’s your chance thanks to Renault Sport’s new E-TECH Hybrid Challenge game.
The online game allows players to pit their wits against our fabulous Renault DP World F1® Team drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Esteban Ocon in two different situations such as racing or driving in the city – but this time there’s a technological twist. You won’t have to beat them for speed but for efficiency by showing the best reflexes as you take on the Renault DP World F1® Team drivers in a series of Renault E-TECH Hybrid vehicles.
The game, which offers immersion in the Renault Sport universe, lets players take on the F1™ stars in a choice of cars featuring our E-TECH Hybrid technology, including the Renault R.S.20 Formula 1™ Single Seater, the NEW CLIO R.S. Line E-TECH Hybrid as well as the MEGANE ESTATE R.S. Line E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid and NEW CAPTUR E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid.
E-TECH technology is the brand new hybrid solution that combines Renault’s leadership in electric vehicles with the Renault DP World F1® Team expertise about efficiency.
Protected by 150 patents, E-TECH technology has allowed Renault to combine a 1.6L naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engine with two different electric options, resulting in two different choices of hybrid driving. The Renault E-TECH Hybrid powertrain self-charges the battery when the petrol engine is in operation, while the Renault E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid offers the added option of pre-charging the battery at home or outside
Both options offer huge fuel savings, including 100% electric starting and maximized time on pure electric driving, power ranging between 140hp for E-TECH Hybrid and-160hp for E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid powertrain.
To get the best from hybrid technology, every Renault E-TECH vehicle comes with three driving modes:
- SPORT, optimized for performance, means the petrol engine is always on while an electric boost is on tap to deliver hybrid power fully when you push down the throttle.
- ECO reduces fuel consumption by favoring electric driving when possible.
- MY SENSE is the default mode – the best compromise between driving pleasure and fuel economy.
E-TECH Hybrid technology puts Renault firmly in the driving seat during the ongoing transition to vehicles of the future. Why not start that transition yourself today – and see if you can beat our two Renault DP World F1® Team drivers while you’re at it.
Renault vehicles including E-TECH technology and their respective engines are:
- CLIO E-TECH Hybrid
- CAPTUR E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid
- MEGANE ESTATE E-TECH Plug-in Hybrid
