Renault Rafale E-Tech full hybrid

Based on the CMF-CD platform, the Renault Rafale E-Tech full hybrid is 4.71 meters long, 1.86 meters wide and 1.61 meters high. The luggage compartment can be called large with a capacity of 627 liters. The car is available with a solarbay panoramic roof, which uses PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) technology to make the glass roof transparent or opaque (without having to cover it) if desired via the Google Assistant or in-car switch. The car also has an OpenR Link infotainment system. The chassis of the Renault Rafale also comes with all-wheel steering, if you opt for the Esprit Alpine. Sounds pretty good, right?

The power

The Renault Rafale can initially be ordered with the E-Tech full hybrid powertrain with an output of 147 kW (200 hp). Its range is 1,100 kilometers. Note that this is a theoretical value. Renault lists consumption andCO2 emissions of 4.7 l/100 km and 106 g/km, respectively.

Delivery from summer 2024

The new Renault Rafale can now be ordered as an E-Tech full hybrid 200 Esprit Alpine, for prices starting at 51,490 euros. The first ones will arrive in the summer of 2024. The techno version will follow later with a starting price of 47,490 euros. By the end of this year, Renault will also introduce the extra powerful Rafale E-Tech 4×4 plug-in hybrid with an output of 221 kW (300 hp). This version features an additional electric motor driving the rear wheels and a specific tuning of the chassis.
