Renault Scenic E-Tech embarrasses Tesla Model Y with its price and range - AutoReview.nl

In September we already saw the new Renault Scenic E-Tech in full regalia on our screen, now the prices of the electric SUV are also known. With the Scenic, Renault seems to have a serious competitor for the Tesla Model Y.

For the people who support us message about the new Scenic missed in September: this new EV van Renault has nothing to do with its MPV patriarch in terms of design, but is an SUV completely in line with the latest fashion. Technically, the Scenic is largely identical to the Megane E-Tech. He does have a different designer; the Scenic was designed by Gilles Vidal, who has been employed by Renault since 2020. The electric Scenic is immediately the calling card for the design of upcoming Renault models.

Will the Scenic pose a serious threat to the Model Y? Follow all car news closely with our free newsletter!

Renault Scenic (2024) prices

The new fully electric Renault Scenic can be picked up from the local Renault dealer from 42,470 euros. This entry-level vehicle is called 'Evolution' and has 170 hp and a 60 kWh battery pack, which allows the SUV to travel up to 430 kilometers on a single charge (WLTP). You can do fast charging with a maximum of 130 kW.

You can also have a Scenic with this drivetrain designed as a 'Techno'. This gives you extras such as artificial leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, a heat pump and a 12-inch multimedia screen instead of the standard 9-inch touchscreen.

Tip

Well insured on the road

Choose the coverage that suits your (electric) car with Interpolis Car Insurance. Standard €0 deductible and free choice of repairs.

The Scenic is also available with 220 hp and an 87 kWh battery pack. With this powertrain the range is no less than 625 kilometers. Fast charging is now also faster with a maximum of 150 kW. The Techno equipment level is standard. You pay 47,970 euros for this.

For just under 2 grand extra you get the Esprit Alpine, with extras such as larger alloy wheels (20 inches), heated front seats and steering wheel heating. For another 1900 euros you can order the top model Iconic. This Scenic has luxuries such as adaptive cruise control, a Harman Kardon sound system and electrically adjustable front seats.


A threat to Tesla?

As mentioned, the Scenic will focus on the Tesla Model Y. That is quite a competitor to have, because the Americans' SUV will almost certainly be the best-selling car in the Netherlands and Europe this year.

But the new Scenic has the right numbers. The basic price of the French SUV will be more than 2.5 grand lower than that of the Model Y (at least 44,990 euros). The newcomer also beats the Model Y by a wide margin in terms of maximum range (625 km vs. 533 km). So anyone who is in the market for an electric SUV next spring will test drive Gilles Vidal's first creation.
