“Renault Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 HP: Elevating Performance with Alpine Expertise”

Renault has unveiled the high-performance version of the Rafale: the Renault Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp. This new model channels all the passion and expertise of the brand, introducing a cutting-edge E-Tech plug-in hybrid powertrain that delivers an impressive 300 hp. Combining the best of internal combustion engine (ICE) and electric motor technologies, the Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp is designed for everyday electric driving and boasts a range of up to 1,000 km (WLTP*).

Innovative Powertrain: A Hybrid Masterpiece

The Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp features a revolutionary powertrain that builds on the E-Tech hybrid 200 hp model. This new powertrain includes an electric motor on the rear axle and a substantial 22 kWh battery, providing up to 100 kilometers of all-electric range (WLTP*). Managed by advanced E-Tech technology, the system seamlessly integrates three electric motors with the combustion engine to deliver a total output of 300 hp

Energy management is continuously optimized to ensure a perfect balance of performance and efficiency. With a combined WLTP fuel consumption of just 0.7 l/100 km, and 5.8 l/100 km when the battery is empty, the Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp stands out for its efficiency even under demanding conditions.

Unmatched Performance Metrics

Under the bonnet, the Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp is powered by a 1.2-liter 3-cylinder engine equipped with a new turbocharger. This boosts power to 150 hp and torque to 230 Nm. The combustion engine works in harmony with three electric motors:

Rafale The New High-Performance Coupe 300HP

A main electric motor on the front axle generating 70 hp and 205 Nm of torque.
A secondary main motor on the rear axle producing 136 hp and 195 Nm of torque.
An HSG (High-voltage Starter Generator) motor providing 34 hp and 50 Nm of torque.
These components work together to propel the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.4 seconds and from 80 to 120 km/h in 4.0 seconds. The two primary electric motors are powered by a 22 kWh/400V lithium-ion battery, ensuring robust electric performance.

Rapid Charging Capabilities

The Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp can be fully recharged to 80% capacity in just 2 hours and 10 minutes, and to 100% in under 3 hours using a 7.4 kW (32A) charger. This quick turnaround ensures the vehicle is ready for extensive electric driving with minimal downtime.

Renault has partnered with Alpine Cars to create the exclusive Atelier Alpine version of the Rafale E-Tech 4×4 300 hp. This variant features a specially tuned chassis and advanced suspension system, enhancing driving pleasure and handling.

Distinctive design elements of the Atelier Alpine version include Satin Summit Blue bodywork, a Starry Black floating spoiler, and unique 21-inch ‘Chicane’ wheels. The active suspension system, coupled with a predictive camera, adjusts damping based on road conditions and driver inputs, ensuring a smooth and controlled ride.

Advanced Agility Control

The Atelier Alpine version introduces innovative Agility Control, allowing drivers to adjust the 4Control Advanced settings, damping profile, and rear steering angles through a ‘Chassis Control’ menu. Drivers can select from three modes: Comfort, Dynamic, and Sport, each tailored to different driving scenarios.
