Renault Arkana

Thanks to the advances derived from Formula 1 it can travel eighty percent of the time in electric

Launched in Europe last March, the new Renault Arkana is now available in the E-Tech 145 hybrid engine. A solution more responsible because it consumes less fuel and guarantees maximum driving pleasure. The full hybrid solution, designed by Renault engineers, features a 230 Volt battery with a capacity of 1.2 kilowatt hours. A powertrain that offers all the advantages of an electric vehicle without the need to connect to the grid.

In the city it almost always travels by electric

Renault Arkana gives its best in terms of savings of consumption, in city traffic. In this habitat, he can travel eighty percent of the time on electricity. At the heart of it all is the architecture of the E-Tech Hybrid powertrain. The solution derived from Formula 1 features two electric motors. There is, in fact, an e-motor and a high-voltage starter of the HSG (High-Voltage Starter Generator) type. They are combined with a 1.2 kilowatt-hour, 230-volt lithium-ion battery.

Renault Arkana's E-Tech 145 full hybrid engine The driving force is given by an innovative multi-mode transmission produced at Ruitz in France. Its peculiarity is the frictionless toothed engagement associated with a new generation 1.6-liter petrol engine. The main electric motor ensures starting the car and traction to the wheels in fully electric mode. It is sufficient not to exceed 75 kilometers per hour to travel even 3 consecutive kilometers in electric mode. Really interesting given that it is a full hybrid car. The consumption of this engine slightly exceeds 20 kilometers per liter and emits only 108 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer traveled.

The combination of the electric motors and the gearbox with tooth engagement allows for the optimization and smoothness of gear changes. Energy management and energy efficiency also benefit. In addition, the absence of the clutch allows you to start the engine in fully electric mode without stressing the heat engine. It is always the main electric motor that ensures starting the car. A solution that allows you to have torque immediately available for a particularly responsive start.
