Barely launched that the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric is affected by a particularly disabling problem, since it is the air conditioning system.

The Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric has only been on the market for a few months and is already a huge success. And with good reason, the electric crossover has been part of the ranking of the 100 best-selling models in France since the beginning of the year, despite its slightly later market launch. A real success story for the compact raised electric, which differs very clearly from the older generation due to its more modern lines and its completely different positioning. Not to mention its connected motor, while it no longer has a single thermal alternative in its range. Unfortunately, although it already attracts many customers, it is not free from small flaws or even more serious problems.

A failure of the air conditioning
In fact, some owners have already paid the price for a minor French quirk. In the last few days, many customer testimonials have appeared on the internet. And the least we can say is that they are not very happy. In fact, the latter claim their car has trouble supporting that fast charging. Then many problems arise, such as a sudden shutdown of the latter and the display of messages such as “traction battery anomaly” or “DC battery charging impossible”. But that’s not all, because in some cases the air conditioning also stops. Embarrassing when we’re in the middle of a heat wave…

Renault took matters into their own hands
Although this problem seems to affect many customers, it does not affect all cars. However, according to the testimonies, only the variants are not equipped with one heat pump would be worried if the outside temperature is very high but also the battery. What happens especially during a long journey, such as when leaving for vacation. Fortunately, Renault took matters into their own hands and identified the problem. To fix the issue, a remote update will be offered to customers over the next few weeks. Meanwhile, the Diamond brand has sent an informational notice to affected motorists to offer them a temporary solution while they wait for the update.
