Renault Captur E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid, of watts in the cotton

Change of doctrine at Renault. The manufacturer boulonnais has changed from an approach limited to the 100% electric vehicle for the deployment of a panel of solutions electrified. A shade of size and the only viable strategy to meet the objectives of reduction of CO2 emissions imposed by the european Commission. The coast to climb is rough: the automobile industry should have reduced its carbon footprint from 37.5% in 2030. This represents a reduction of 4 % per year. Aside from its offers 100 % electric which will strengthen in the coming months, Renault will therefore be based, depending on the model, on the battery technology, injecting a dose more or less of electricity: mild hybrid 48v, hybrid and plug-in hybrid. These latter two systems share the same hybrid drivetrain.

If the Clio V just a hybrid version, and therefore does not need to be connected to the sector, the Captur offers an alternative to a rechargeable battery, which represents a unique proposition on the compact SUV segment. Tested on the concept Elolab of 2014, the Renault system for restraint is new. It is the result of nearly ten years of development. With filing 150 patents, this solution is differentiated by the adoption of a transmission multimode gear and without clutch. The guarantee of extreme compactness and smoothness of operation greater than the transmission to continuous variation while ensuring a cost content.

The 4-cylinder 1.6-litre original Nissan 91-ch, the Captur combines an electric motor with 66 hp and a starter high-voltage, 34 hp also plays the role of generator. The box house embeds two trees. The heat engine consists of five reports, the electric three. This is the way it has in the absolute of fifteen combinations of operation. With an aggregate power of 160 horses, the Capture plug-in hybrid thus becomes the most powerful model of the range.

the merit of this Captur E-Tech Plug-in Hybrid is the demand for a consumer is certified to 1.4 l/100 km, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 32g/km. Thanks to its battery of 9.8 kWh (1.2 kWh for the Clio hybrid), Renault announced a 50-km range electric ; 65 km in the city, in a movement like an accordion. Not content to liberate themselves from the future prohibition of combustion engines at the heart of large cities, the Captur is eligible for the bonus of 2 000 € granted by the State to the plug-in hybrid vehicles to support the automobile sector shaken by the outbreak of the coronavirus. Companies can also count on an exemption for life from TVS and, according to the departments, the grey card a free or half-price.

Cannula exhaust hidden behind the rear skirt, the Captur E-Tech would almost for an electric vehicle. It is so true that it always starts on the electric motor, except if the outside temperature is really low. The onboard computer indicates a range of 525 km for the thermal engine; 52 km in electric. Gear lever to hand position, the Captur starts gently, in the silence of its electric propulsion. The driver then has a number of strategies of conduct that can be activated from the touch pad 9.3 inches placed in the center console: Pure, Sport, My Sense. The first determines the mode zero-emission. The second allows you to have all the power of the three engines. The third automatically manages the energy exchange as a function of the force applied to the accelerator pedal, the speed and the level of charge of the battery. Other features are available: force the EV mode by pressing a button; save energy with the mode, e-Save (40 % of minimum energy) with a view to the crossing of a low emission zone or a city centre; to increase the energy recovery with the B-mode and increasing the engine brake. A witness of the progress of technology, it is possible to maintain a higher pressure on the accelerator without waking the combustion engine. This is the case on the highway up to 135 km/h. at this speed, the battery drains at the speed of lightning.

alternating routes and urban and peri-urban areas, the computer indicated consumption of gasoline and electricity, respectively, 5.4 l/100 km and 11.8 kWh. In real life, you can count on a radius of the order of 42 km. Most of the time transparent, the energy exchanges are sometimes disrupted by surges when at low speed, we pass from the generator, thus assuring the charging of the battery, to the electric mode. If the acceleration at start-up and up to 60 km/h gives us wings, the performance does not match those of the 4-cylinder turbo, 1.3 l of 154 hp. Even under high load, the effect of runaway of the motor is limited. The top speed makes 30 km/h (173 km/h), while the 100 km/h are reached in 10,1 seconds, instead of 8.6 s for the Tec 155 hp. The fault in overweight 200 pounds generated by the rechargeable hybrid drivetrain.

Another consequence of the integration of the battery under the rear seat that slides always on 160 mm: the use of a rear suspension triangles superimposed, instead of the axle, multi-link original. This translates into a damping firmer and agility lower. Similarly, the architecture plug-in hybrid is losing the 40-litre space under the floor of the trunk, remove the spare wheel and cut the gas tank of 3 litres to 39 l. To get the pill, the Captur is only available with the two finishes of the highest, Intensity and Initial Bets. With this last, one has access to a generous equipment and a refined atmosphere that is in phase with the silence of the propulsion zero emission. As for all vehicles of this kind, to take full advantage of the electric motor, it will not hesitate to recharge it regularly. The duration varies from 3 hours (3.7 kW) to 5 hours (2.4 kW) depending on the power of the installation.

Our opinion

technology plug-in hybrid, Renault strengthens the power of attraction of the new Captur. Certainly, it is necessary to accept a reduction in the volume of loading and a self-reduced thermal, but this compact SUV is a model of accreditation. But to take full advantage of the power and roll the week without wasting a single drop of fuel, it will be in the case of figure of trips in urban areas or peri-urban daily newspapers of less than 50 km, and easy access to charging stations (home and/or office) in order to be able to always have the full range of action electric.

Is what the Figaro is vulgar to talk about money or the price is not yet known?
