Renault has confirmed its presence at the approaching IAA Mobility 2023 Motor Show in Munich, Germany. The French automaker will unveil two vehicles - the much-anticipated Scenic E-Tech and the brand-new Grand Kangoo. The Scenic, which will be the main attraction of the event, is said to ride on the same CMF-EV platform as the Nissan Ariya and Megane E-Tech Electric. The Scenic E-Tech Electric vehicle is expected to have a design and characteristics similar to the Renault Scenic Vision concept from last year. According to the automaker, the production model will look around 90% like the concept, with a few variations such as the absence of the rear-hinged rear doors and the addition of B-pillars. However, the front grille and lighting may not be as flashy as on the concept. Let's take a closer look at the forthcoming model's expected features.
Renault Scenic E-Tech: Expected Mechanical Details
There hasn't been any official powertrain update as of now, however, the production version, which is expected to be built on the CMF-EV architecture, will apparently use a battery-electric powertrain instead of the concept car's electric-hydrogen powertrain. It's likely that the Scenic will be available with both a single electric motor making 212bhp, similar to the Renault Megane E-Tech, and two electric motors generating 384bhp, identical to the Nissan Ariya. As previously stated, there is no official confirmation regarding the engine of the car; nevertheless, more information will probably become available at the debut.
According to Renault ''All-new Scenic E-Tech electric, is the first production car to embody the brand’s new sustainable development strategy: on environment, safety, and inclusion.'' After the Megane E-Tech Electric, the Scenic E-Tech Electric will be the second compact EV offered by the French carmaker.
