All-new Megane E-Tech electric awarded 5 star by EuroNCAP
  • All-new Megane E-Tech electric just received 5 star from EuroNCAP with its 2022 test protocol.
  • New Megane scored with 85% adult occupant protection and 88% on child occupant protection thanks to its highly protective structure equipped with a total of 7 airbags. The score for vulnerable road user is 65% while safety assist reached 79%.

In addition to the elements assessed by EuroNCAP, As part of an effort to offer uncompromising safety, the All-new Megane E-Tech electric also includes the Fireman Access innovation that was born of a long standing partnership – more than 10 years – between Renault Group and French firefighters.

A QR code is also affixed to the windscreen of the All-new Megane E-Tech electric. It is intended for rescue teams who, by scanning it when responding to an accident, can very quickly recognise that it is an electric vehicle. It also gives them access to the car’s structural information (e.g., the location of the battery and airbags, places for quick and risk-free cutting), which in turn means they can save up to 15 minutes on the time it takes to extract a possible crash victim!

Fireman Access and the QR code are just a few of the measures that ensure optimal safety for those using Renault vehicles. More generally, ensuring the safety of customers on the roads as well as employees in the workplace is one of the three major pillars (along with the ecological transition and inclusion) of Renault Group’s Sustainable Development policy (CSR) policy being implemented as part of the Renaulution strategy.
