Renault Capture E-TECH in Israel: hybrid and expensive


The Renault importer begins marketing the hybrid version of the Capture, which promises a more fuel-efficient and environmentally friendly power unit, but at the same prices and even higher than the prices of the bigger and hybrid Renault Arcana, it is difficult for us to see it becoming popular here. From NIS 160,000

Carso Motors announces this morning the start of marketing of the E-TECH Capture, the economical and environmentally friendly version of its compact recreational vehicle, which will compete here with models such as the Hyundai Kona, Nissan Juke and Toyota Yaris Cross in their hybrid versions.

This is also Renault's second hybrid vehicle in Israel, joining the Arcana model whose marketing began here last summer, and surprisingly, the price list of the pair of models is exactly the same in their base versions, and even more expensive in the top version of the Capture, which adds to the question of value for the price of the new model.

The hybrid pickup is equipped with the same familiar exterior design of the second generation of the model that was launched in Israel about two years ago, but includes minor cosmetic updates and overall still looks attractive.

Its power unit, designed in collaboration with the Alpine F1 team, combines a 1.6-liter gasoline engine and a pair of electric motors that produce a combined power of 143 hp and a maximum torque of 20.9 kgm and are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

According to the manufacturer, this is a combination that guarantees a smoother and more refined ride alongside better performance, but a review of the vehicle's specifications reveals a slightly less vigorous performance than the familiar 1.33-liter turbo gasoline version, with acceleration from a standstill to 100 km/h in 10.6 seconds (compared to 9.2 seconds) and a maximum speed of 170 km/h (instead of 196 km/h).

You will probably find the advantage of the new model in terms of fuel consumption and pollutant emissions, with a combined fuel consumption of 21.2 km per liter according to the manufacturer's data and CO2 emissions of up to 108 grams per km, giving the car an air pollution level of 3 (compared to 11).

The prices of the Renault Captur hybrid are higher than expected and will start from NIS 159,990 for the entry version, about NIS 169,990 for the middle version and up to NIS 176,990 for the highest trim level, and at the above price level, it is difficult for us to see it becoming popular on Israeli roads.
