The All-new Cleeo respects that tradition, and in 2020 will be available with a full-hybrid drive train called E-TECH. This is a major first for Groupe Renault, which harnessed all its expertise as the European leader in electric mobility to offer a unique hybrid experience on the All-new Cleeo.
The E-TECH drive train was developed and patented by Renault engineering. It uses components designed by the Alliance, including the new-generation 1.6 liter petrol engine reworked specifically for the occasion. It is accompanied by two electric motors, an innovative multi-mode gearbox and a 1.2 kWh battery.
Renault E-TECH hybrid technology provides maximum efficiency in use with class-leading responsiveness, limited energy waste and quick battery charging when decelerating. The drive train’s excellent energy yield recovers and restores a maximum amount of energy. The car starts in all-electric mode, and the driver benefits from a powerful regenerative engine. The regenerative braking similar to that of an electric vehicle, the high battery charging capacity and the energy efficiency of the E-TECH system combined make it possible to drive up to 80% of the time in all-electric mode in the city, for a gain of up to 40% in fuel consumption compared with a conventional internal-combustion petrol engine in an urban cycle. While maintaining a driving pleasure never seen before on the hybrid city car market, thanks to instantaneous reactivity when starting and accelerating.
PETROL ENGINES SCe 65 and 75: economical to buy and use The normally aspirated 1.0 SCe (with three cylinders) is the perfect choice for drivers seeking an economical car for use in the city. With a 5-speed gearbox and power of 65 hp and 75 hp (and torque of 95 Nm), it offers seamless operation in urban driving.
TCe 100: peerless versatility Making its debut in the Renault range, the turbocharged 1.0 TCe (with three cylinders) is the most recent engine developed through Alliance synergies. It comprises all the latest technologies, including a turbocharger with an electrically controlled recirculating valve, an exhaust manifold partially integrated into the cylinder head, twin variable valve timing for intake, and bore spray coating. With 100 hp and 160 Nm of torque, the new-generation engine gains 10 hp and 20 Nm on the TCe 90 unit that it replaces, and at the same time boasts reduced fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. These last, calculated at as low as 100 g/km*, rank New Cleeo TCe 100 at the top of its category for petrol-powered cars. The engine also affords consummate at-the-wheel pleasure through extra torque, available from low engine speeds for more sprightly pick-up.
The TCe 100 will initially be available in New Cleeo with a 5-speed manual gearbox. It will subsequently be mated to the latest-generation X-TRONIC automatic gearbox. Adapted to European use, it provides seamless operation in urban driving. It also features the D-STEP function that reproduces the behavior of a multi-gear transmission for varied routes and more emphatic acceleration. The TCe 100 engine will also be available in a dual-fuel LPG version for maximum economy in use and reduced pollutant emissions.
TCe 130 GPF: maximum driving pleasure The 1.3 TCe GPF engine is making its debut on the All-new Cleeo after proving itself on Captur, Mégane, Scénic and Kadjar. Available with 130 hp and 240 Nm, it is mated to the 7-speed EDC automatic gearbox and replaces the TCe 120 as the top-of-the-range engine on New Cleeo. The new-generation unit showcases all the on-road qualities of New Cleeo, for a more invigorating drive in all situations. The dual-clutch EDC transmission makes driving more seamless and pleasant while also reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. And for still more pleasure, New Cleeo TCe 130 GPF EDC will be equipped with steering wheel mounted controls.
DIESEL ENGINES Blue dCi 85 and 115: a latest-generation diesel for greater frugality New Cleeo is also available with a diesel engine in the shape of the 1.5 Blue dCi, adapted for intensive use and company fleets. This powerplant has been upgraded to comply with new pollution control standards with the introduction of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system considered as the most effective nitrogen oxide (NOx) post-treatment solution. Two versions are available: 85 hp / 220 Nm for economical driving and 115 hp / 260 Nm for more athletic performance. With a manual 6-speed gearbox that reduces engine speed beyond 110 km/h, and thanks to its class-leading aerodynamics, New Cleeo Blue dCi is particularly efficient out on the open road and highways.
