hybrid engines

100% hybrid range

Up to 40% fuel savings with the E-Tech full hybrid powertrain. In the city, drive up to 80% of the time in electric mode. The battery is recharged when decelerating and braking, no need for a power outlet.

The all new 48 V electrical system associated with the petrol engine helps to improve the torque available during start-up and acceleration phases for better sensations, increased driving pleasure and lower everyday fuel consumption*.     

* up to 20% fuel savings with 48 V mild hybrid advanced     

The 1st level of hybridisation, the 12V electrical system helps the petrol engine during acceleration phases to offer a more flexible and dynamic driving experience whilst limiting your fuel consumption.

hybrid at its best

  • E-Tech full hybrid new generation powertrain
  • up to 80%* city driving time in electric mode
  • up to 40%** reduced fuel consumption
  • reduced CO2  emissions
  • crisp and responsive accelerations
*depending on the condition of the battery and the driving style / in-house source Renault / 2022
**for an E-Tech full hybrid powertrain compared to a mild hybrid auto powertrain, according to WLTC City protocol / source UTAC & IDIADA / September 2022
The E-Tech full hybrid powertrain on the Renault Austral is made up of a new 3-cylinder, 1.2 litre turbocharged petrol engine combined with a new electric motor, a lithium-ion battery and a smart multi-modal gearbox.
main functions
You can enjoy powerful start with an automatic electric drive. Regenerative braking charges the battery as you drive. You can also recover even more energy through 4 regeneration modes.
