PARIS -- Renault will reveal the Megane-e full-electric compact car and a prototype version of the Renault 5 retro-themed EV at the Munich auto show in September.
The Megane-e will be one of the most critical new models to be launched under CEO Luca de Meo since he took over in July 2020. It has been shown in camouflaged pre-production form. It will be launched in early 2022.
De Meo has made it a priority to increase Renault's sales in the compact segment, which is more profitable than the small segments where the brand gets 70 percent of its sales.
The Megane-e is based on the Renault-Nissan Alliance's CMF-EV platform, which also underpins the coming Nissan Ariya crossover.
