Renault has unveiled the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric, which will soon go on sale. It will be Renault’s first electric vehicle in the C-Class and will complement the Renault Twingo in the A-Class and the Renault ZOE in the B-Class.
Last fall, French automaker Renault unveiled the Megane eVision electric car concept, and now the car has morphed into the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric and is almost ready to go.
Renault Megane E-Tech Electric, which is also called MeganE in the company, is built on the proprietary CMF-EV platform. It is equipped with a 160 kW (217 hp) electric motor and a 60 kW • h battery, which will cover a distance of up to 450 km using the WLTP protocol.
This summer, 30 pre-production vehicles will be seen on European roads, where they will be tested. They have already been assembled at a factory in Douai, France, where the Espace, Scenic and Talisman models are produced. Mass production starts later.
All pre-production vehicles are covered with a signature painting from Renault Design, which consists of a play of lines and patterns of the new company logo.
496 hp, all-wheel drive and HarmonyOS. Huawei’s first electric car will be presented on September 12 – along with Huawei Mate 50
Judging by the rumors that circulate in the Chinese (and not only) media and relate to the premiere dates of new Huawei products, the company has revised its announcement strategy. If earlier car premieres did not intersect with other devices, now it is the other way around: cars are presented on the same day as smartphones. And so it will be with the company’s first electric car, the Aito M5e.
Recall, the other day it became known that the premiere of the nova 10 series smartphones will take place on July 4, and on the same day, Huawei will present its second car, the large Aito M7 hybrid crossover. It is possible that the car, smartphones and other novelties will make their debut on the same stage. And now the same is being said about Huawei’s first electric car, the Aito M5e. Its premiere is scheduled for September 12, and on the same day, Huawei is rumored to introduce the Mate 50.
There are no official details about the Aito M5e, but the car has already been listed in the Chinese regulator’s database, which has revealed key details. So, Aito M5e will receive two electric motors: 224 hp. on the front axle and 272 hp. – on the back. That is, the crossover will be all-wheel drive. The capacity of the traction battery will be 72 kWh. There is no data on the mileage on a single charge, but you can count on about 500 km.
Aito M5e is a mid-size crossover, its length, width and height are, respectively, 4785, 1930 and 1620 mm. But at the same time, it will be spacious inside, since the length of the wheelbase is 2880 mm. Weight Aito M5e, depending on the capacity of the traction battery, will be 2235 or 2350 kg. Externally, the Aito M5e will repeat the Aito M5 hybrid crossover, the first Huawei car. The interior will also be about the same as the Aito M5 – with a large screen in the center and a multimedia and entertainment system running HarmonyOS.
Prices for electric vehicles soared amid rising costs of materials, logistics and rising gasoline prices
American companies Tesla, Ford, GM, Rivian and Lucid have markedly increased the cost of electric vehicles over the past few months, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Manufacturers said the price increase was due to increased costs for battery materials. In addition, the demand for electric vehicles began to grow sharply against the backdrop of rising gasoline prices.
Last week, for example, General Motors added $6,250 to GMC Hummer electric pickups, which now range in price from $85,000 to $105,000. General Motors announced a rise in prices for materials and logistics.
Earlier, Tesla raised prices for its entire lineup in the US market, and also increased the cost of the Tesla Model Y crossover in China.
At the end of May, the average price of an electric car in the United States increased by 22% and amounted to about $54,000. At the same time, the average cost of a car with an internal combustion engine increased by 14% to $44,400.
