The All-new Mégane E-TECH Electric paves the way to carbon-free mobility: zero-emissions when on the road, designed using recycled, second life for its batteries, and readily recyclable at the end of its life cycle. This vehicle of Renault’s ‘Nouvelle Vague’ embodies the very challenges of modern times. As innovative as it is eco-friendly, the All-new Mégane E-TECH Electric reflects the Renault’s commitment to be an active part of the ecological transition and helps Renault Group achieve its 2040 target of being carbon neutral in Europe. Quentin, Environmental Officer at Material Engineering, tells the story of the ‘green’ car he helped create.
Designing vehicles is his business. To do so while finding ways to tackle the very societal and environmental challenges that mould our daily lives and shape our future is what Quentin brings to the table with his expertise in materials. Quentin, Environmental Officer at Renault Material Engineering, was in his element working on the All-new Mégane E-TECH Electric, a model that showcases how the company’s strategy homes in on environmental issues now more than ever. An approach to design that began 30 years ago with the use of recycled materials to make vehicles back in the day, and which is now picking up pace as it takes on a whole new dimension. Supply and manufacturing ecosystems are being designed and reworked to be a more integral part of circular economies, thereby reducing the vehicle’s carbon footprint long before it hits the open road. Local sourcing, responsible suppliers, recycled materials: this paves the way to a new future of sustainable mobility.
