Scénic E-Tech electric becomes the brand's seventh vehicle to win the prestigious title of Car of the Year. It follows in the footsteps of Renault 16 (1966), Renault 9 (1982), Clio I (1991), Scénic I (1997), Mégane (2003) and Clio III (2006). In 2022, Mégane E-Tech electric came second on the podium.
With this latest accolade, Scénic has won the prestigious title for the second time - just as Clio did in 1991 and 2006.

To understand the success of Scénic E-Tech electric, we need to go back to the first model of this name. In 1996, Renault invented the first compact MPV on the market, the Mégane Scénic. It's a vehicle whose cabin is packed with innovations, with the needs of families at the forefront of its design. Scénic E-Tech electric builds on this heritage of almost 30 years by returning in the guise of a model that is now 100% electric.

This fifth generation of Scénic is heading in the direction of more sustainable, safer and more inclusive mobility. A 100% electric vehicle developed on Ampere's AmpR Medium (formerly CMF-EV) platform, Scénic is assembled at the ElectriCity plant in Douai, and benefits from more responsible production, located as close as possible to the countries where it is sold.

Zero emissions in use, agile, light (1890 kg) and compact (4.47 m long), Scénic is at ease in town. For long journeys, it offers up to 625 km of range (WLTP), comfort, roominess and driving pleasure enhanced by useful technologies.
