Renault Captur range gains new hybrid engine

Renault has expanded the engine line-up for the Captur with a new hybrid model, joining the existing plug-in hybrid version.

Priced from £24,500, the newcomer is powered by the same 1.6-litre powertrain as the Clio Hybrid. It emits 114g/km and produces 145PS.

The E-Tech hybrid system uses two electric motors and a 1.2kW battery. While the car can start and move on electric power only, the motors are predominantly used to assist the petrol engine.

Renault says the hybrid powertrain allows “significant reductions” in fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. Fuel consumption is measured at 56.6mpg under WLTP.

After the Plug-in Hybrid, the Hybrid is the most powerful Captur available. It can accelerate from zero to 62mph in 10.6 seconds and has a maximum speed of 106mph.

Three trim levels are offered on the Captur E-Tech Hybrid: Iconic, S Edition and RS Line.
