Launched in Europe last March, the New Renault Arkana is now available with its E-TECH 145 hybrid engine, which is more responsible and fuel-efficient. With this "full hybrid" solution equipped with a 1.2 kWh 230 V battery, New Renault Arkana provides all the benefits of electric power without having to plug in.

At the wheel of an SUV coupe, drivers will be able to achieve up to 80% of driving time in the city in all-electric mode1, providing silence, comfort and responsiveness. Depending on the conditions of use, the possible range in full electric mode is up to 3 km.

The vehicle's E-TECH technology, directly derived from Formula 1, and the innovations made tothe car's aerodynamics, such as SCx of 0.72 which is 25% more efficient than that of a traditional SUV, the New RenaultnArkana E-TECH Hybrid consumes only 4.8 l/100 km 2 and emits 108 g of CO2/km.

Unique in the C-segment, the 4.57m SUV Coupé houses its E-TECH hybrid system on the rear axle. Its compactness allows the same interior space as the combustion engine versions.

The sporty RS line version of the New Renault Arkana comes with the e-shifter as standard.
