The next-generation Renault Captur will be the first model of the brand with a plug-in hybrid modification in its lineup.
The next Captur is undergoing intensive testing and will go into production at the end of this year. The crossover enters the market in early 2020.
The model’s powertrain will include Nissan’s 1.6-liter naturally aspirated engine, a small electric motor and a 9.8-kilowatt rechargeable battery. It is expected that the new Captur will be able to run 19-25 miles (30–40km) in electric-only mode.
Of course, the crossover will be available with conventional internal combustion engines, including diesel ones.
Here it is worth noting a new 1.3-liter gasoline motor developed by Nissan and already offered for the updated Kadjar and the latest 4th-generation Mercedes A-Class.
