Loading times and autonomy levels depend on the outside temperature, the power of the load terminal, the driving style and the load of the battery battery.

The autonomies displayed correspond to a configuration and an average use of the vehicle and can in particular vary depending on the level of equipment.
The selection of an average speed (instead of constant speed) includes a certain number of slowdowns or acceleration phases specific to the corresponding speed range: the average speed is thus 110 or 120 km/h (instead of 130) on a highway, or 20 to 30 km/h (instead of 50) in town.

Compatibility with certain loading powers or infrastructure (such as fast chargers allowing very short charging times) depends on the vehicle equipment level. Go to the configurator to select the most suitable charging power to your use. These charges were measured in optimal temperature and operating conditions.

*WLTP: English “Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure”.
This new protocol, of global scope, must determine emissions and the consumption of thermal vehicles, but also the autonomy of electric vehicles, while being closer to the conditions of daily use. Autonomy data expressed in mixed cycle (all types of road) and urban cycle (mainly at low speed). For more info consult the https page: // www.Renault.FR/WLTP.html

Renault Mégane E-Tech: charging cost and autonomy on a long journey of 850 km

Can Renault Mégane E-Tech be the main vehicle of a home ? This is the question to which we will try to answer in this file that will test it of our major reference journeys in summer and winter. Let’s see where the Renault Mégane e-tech is located compared to the others.

An electric vehicle is very suitable for the daily life of those who have a home load solution, allowing them to drive at low cost and without constraint. If this description is indeed true in the vast majority of journeys, it is no longer so for large trips that go beyond the theoretical autonomy of the car.

This is why we started this series of files on different trendy cars, by putting them to the test of our reference journeys. The Renault Mégane E-Tech will have much to do to place itself among the vehicles already examined, such as the Kia Ev6 58 kWh, the Tesla Model Y Propulsion, or the MG MG4.

As usual, the rules are as follows: Departure is 100 % battery, arrival at 20 %, and the vehicle must drive at borderline speeds. We will recall the characteristics of the vehicle (autonomy, battery, charging power) and will confront them with the reality on the ground. Let’s see what the Renault Mégane e-tech has in store for us during the main journeys !

The characteristics of the Renault Mégane E-Tech EV60

We select for this file the Renault Mégane E-Tech EV60, which therefore has a 60 kWh battery, with WLTP autonomy of 450 to 470 kilometers depending on the configuration. We also have a buying guide to help you see more clearly in the range.

The maximum admitted charging power is 130 kW and a load of 10 to 80 % is announced at 37 minutes in ideal conditions by Renault. Port CCS Combo of the Mégane E-Tech allows it to navigate among all the fast charging networks available, such as Ionity, Fastned, Totalenergies or even Tesla Superchants open to all.

As always, we are based on the simulations of the excellent A Better Route Planner, which will be used to plan the journeys, with the default consumption inherent in the Renault Mégane E-Tech EV60.


In order to respect the rules of this exercise, We start the 100 % battery journeys, Considering that you have to pay for this filling at the average kWh price in France, located at 0.17 euros today. The 60 kWh then represent 10.20 euros, that must be added at the time of the assessment of each large journey.

The first major journey corresponds to a summer holidays from Orleans and to Arcachon (530 kilometers), when the winter journey leaves Caen and ends in Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (850 kilometers).

For the summer journey, the parameters indicated in A Better Route Planner are as follows: 25 degrees Celsius in outdoor temperature, absence of wind, arrival at a charging station with 10 % remaining battery, and arrival at 20 %. For the winter journey, it is substantially identical, apart from the weather, where we chose a temperature of 0 degree Celsius.

The results of the various journeys

Almost an hour’s charge for 530 kilometers

During this large summer journey which links Orleans to Arcachon, two load stops are necessary. The first is carried out after 222 kilometers traveled, for a period of 38 minutes on the Poitiers supercharger. At the current rate of € 0.79/kWh for non-bodies Tesla, this burden amounts to 36.50 euros.

The second charge is on the Ionity network, this time for 18 minutes and a cost of 20 euros. In total, the time spent recharging is 56 minutes, for a price of 56.50 euros. By adding the cost of the charge at home, This 530 kilometers route therefore amounts to 66.70 euros. The estimated consumption is 219 Wh/km, which corresponds to an autonomy of approximately 275 kilometers.

30 minutes of load every 150 kilometers in winter

The reference winter journey that we use has many challenges to be met for electric vehicles. It combines three very impacting factors on autonomy: temperature, speed and altitude gain. So, Do not imagine approaching WLTP autonomy Cars that we consider on this route connecting Caen to Chamonix-Mont-Blanc by 0 degrees: it’s impossible.

With the Renault Mégane E-Tech EV60, The greatest distance traveled between two charges is 166 kilometers On this reference journey. Five recharging stops are needed to reach the destination with 20 % battery, and The total load duration is two hours and twelve minutes.

The different load networks used, however, make it possible to make this trip without incident, the density of fast chargers available being very large. Tesla, Ionity, and even Kallista Energy are present on the route, making this trip quite doable, if we accept the constraints related to the.

A free recharging terminal is offered in Sauvigny-le-Bois, and there are other charging points nearby, in particular the Tesla de Avallon supercharger, if this terminal is unavailable. In total, the costs linked to the fast charge vary between 93 and 129 euros, which gives a Total price price including the starting load between 104 and 139 euros for 850 kilometers. Finally, forecast consumption is 257 WH/km, which corresponds to an average autonomy of 230 kilometers with a full load under these conditions.

Consumption, cost of recharge and autonomy

We summarize the costs and the load durations (including the home recharge at 10.20 euros) in the table below. You can view as our examples are placed where the vehicle is interested in you in relation to the others on a similar route.

The Renault Mégane E-Tech is adapted for major journeys ?

As you can see, the Renault Mégane E-Tech is well capable of cutting the road, but you have to accept recharge both frequent and long. Indeed, with almost an hour of recharge for the summer journey, it is at the bottom of the table, behind the MG4, which is much less expensive.

Of course, It is not a few more minutes of load that will allow a decision to be made on an electric car in particular, But it is interesting to see where the megane e-tech is located among the others. And it is clear that it is not one of the good students.

In terms of costs related to journeys, with 12.65 euros per 100 kilometers for the summer journey and 16.35 euros per 100 kilometers for the winter journey, travel in Renault Mégane E-Tech with current prices remains relatively expensive Compared to other electric vehicles.

Indeed, consumption flies at high speed, forcing to recharge approximately every 150 kilometers, which does not allow you to keep a fairly low cost over long distances. Certain optimization tracks may appeal to large rollers, such as the Ionity Passport subscription or membership of 12.99 euros per month at Tesla.

In the first case, the commitment is annual, but at Tesla, there is no commitment, and The subscription is reimbursed by the savings made by loading, as soon as more than 100 kWh have been recharged on the supercomposes open to all.

Another track is the Mobilize Load Subscription recently unveiled by Renault, which makes it possible to lower the cost per kWh at Ionity at 0.30 euro, with a subscription to 17.50 euros per month.

When concluding, we are forced to admit that Even if the Renault Mégane E-Tech has many advantages, the main journeys are not its strong point. Compared to vehicles offering similar autonomy on paper, it does less well in this exercise: the Tesla Model Y Propulsion or the Hyundai Ioniq 5 allow you to arrive safely faster. Finally, the MG4, which is considerably less expensive, loses only 11 minutes on the winter journey, and is equal to the summer journey. It remains to be seen whether these minutes lost on large journeys are decisive for you or not.
