The Renault Scenic E-Tech electric has a maximum power of 160 KW (218 hp/215 bhp). The total torque is 300 nm (221 ft-lb). It performs the 0-100km/h sprint (0-62mph) in 8.4 seconds. The top speed is 170 km/h.
Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 65kWh and a net capacity of 60kWh, meaning you have a 5kWh buffer for protection. (7.7%).
The WLTP range varies from 450 to 429 km (280-267 mi), depending on car options. Bigger wheels are an example of an equipment option that increases consumption and reduces the electric range. The consumption is between 13.3kWh/100km for the basic version and 14.0kWh/100km for the top trim version for the WLTP standard test. For more details about the range, see real-world data and range listing on this model’s range and consumption page.
The maximum DC charging speed is 130kW. A full charge from 0 - 100% would take 44 minutes, while a more common scenario of 10-80% would take 24 minutes. If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 6% to 65%, resulting in an actual charge speed, including time loss, of 91kW. Each charge session would take 23 minutes and 21 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 23kWh/100km, 1000km will take 10 hours and 12 minutes. This trip will require five charge session(s) charging from 6% to 63%. The total time lost for charging up the battery will be 113 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the standard onboard charger supports up to 7.2 KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 8 hours and 20 minutes.
The location of the charge port is on the right front side. This location makes it easy to use charge stations where you park side into the charger. The connector types vary between the different markets. This model uses CCS Combo 1 for North America and for Europe, CCS Combo 2. See full specifications for all markets.
