New technologies have made the models that have been presented in recent years have been the clear reference in a sector in constant evolution and change. So much so, that each of the vehicles that have left in 2022 have provided a renewed vision where the incorporation of new business models has been fundamental. Renault have been thinking at all times about the end user, something that has been essential to find groundbreaking models. The French firm recently launched the new Megane E-Tech 100%, which had technological advances that allowed acoustic comfort to be in the foreground.
According to Sofiane Amaanan, Project Manager of Development and Innovation in the Engineering and Projects Management of Renault, they have incorporated a set of improvements that allow the sound not to be heard at all: “To improve the acoustics of the vehicle while gaining space between the floor and the battery, we have replaced the two heavier materials on the floor with a new insulating foam. Covers the entire surface of the battery located under the floor to ensure the homogeneity of the assembly and it brings a greater silence in the cabin, which is thus transformed into a real bubble”.
On board the New Megane E-Tech 100% electric, the silence is immediately perceived and its occupants are invaded by the sensationn is to be traveling in a bubble. Of course, an electric motor is by nature silent, but in this cabin one feels completely isolated from rolling noises. All this will allow users to be working and resting without there being anything that bothers them or prevents them from enjoying the trip.
The designers removed the elements traditionally used for soundproofing under the carpet of the vehicle, including a heavy piece made of resin, and placed a new patented cushioning foam under the floor of the New Megane E-Tech 100% electric. Such foam adapts perfectly to the shape of the floor at the top and the battery housing at the bottom. Tol be compressed, acts as a vibration absorber to reduce acoustic radiation from the groundand provides a greater sense of silence in the cabin.
