Due to the harsh Covid times, the Belgian Motor Show early next year has been canceled, which is unfortunate for many manufacturers. Renault has some very good news, and since it is not on the show, we will present it here for you on these pages. We have also fond memories of testing the E-Tech plug-in hybrid Mégane Grandtour, Captur and the all electric ZOE. But in the meantime many more interesting Renaults and last but not least Dacia’s are launched, and we hope to collect some test and driving impressions for you soon.
Let’s here have a look at what Renault has up its sleeve for our market(s) here…

Mégane E-TECH Electric in Belgian premiere
Renault is exhibiting in its dealer showrooms for the first time the all-new Mégane E-TECH Electric, in line with its announced offensive in the compact car segment (C-segment), the largest segment in Europe.
With Renault’s new ‘Nouvel’R’ logo, the Mégane E-TECH Electric represents the transformation of the brand: it symbolizes the reinvention of the core market. It presents itself as unique and technological with the jewel in its interior, the “OpenR” screen that merges the data from the dashboard with the multimedia system as a whole.
New Dacia Jogger…
The New Jogger will be the star of the Dacia showrooms. The Dacia Jogger offers up to seven seats and offers the efficiency of a station wagon, the interior space of a van and the look of an SUV.
With its Spring, Dacia is starting its electric transition. By offering the cheapest electric car on the market, Dacia is making mobility affordable again, just like it did with Logan back then. The success testifies to the market enthusiasm for a simple and affordable electric car, as 40,000 orders have already been registered in Europe, of which more than 650 in Belgium (between July and November).
New Alpine range in world premiere
Visitors to the Alpine showrooms can experience the brand new Alpine A110 range in a world premiere. The sporty coupé is now available in three versions, each with its own character. Alpine A110 with its 252 hp 1.8 engine is the entry model and the “purest” version of the range, according to some aficionados. New is the Alpine A110 GT, which shows itself more opulent and more powerful with its 300 hp 1.8 litre engine, is the sports car for everyday rides and long journeys.
Also the new Alpine A110 S presents itself with its specific sports chassis. It can now be fitted optionally with semi-slick tires and an exclusive aerodynamic kit, consisting of a carbon fiber rear spoiler for increased downforce, a carbon fiber front splitter and extended front fairings under the car to increase the efficiency of the rear diffuser and flat floor. We will be keen to collect some driving impressions for you!
In the meantime, just have a look at the photos…
