All Renault vehicles registered since 2000 are compatible with SP95-E10 fuel. Renault confirms that all its petrol vehicles registered since 2000 are E-10 compatible. Its engineers have validated the engine technology. There are only two exceptions: the F5R 2-litre direct-injection petrol engine and the F4Rt 2-litre turbo which were marketed between 2000 and 2002.
Your local dealer can organise a Touch Up Stick or you, don't worry if you do not know the exact paint colour or paint code we will make sure it is right before we send it to you.
Each paint colour has a 3 digit code should you need to order some paint or a touch up stick for repairs, the paint code is on the sticker on the inside of your door jam or on a sticker in the inside cover of your handbook.
Alternatively visit our Renault Shop to check paint code and order a touch up stick.
Login or register for MY Renault and then add your vehicle to your account. The MY Renault app will then display your radio code along with your vehicle details.
All new Renault vehicles are supplied with the Radio Code, the code is printed inside the front or rear cover of the vehicle handbook or service book.
If you no longer have the handbook you can also apply here to receive your Radio Code.
Learn how to find and enter your vehicle’s Radio Code.

You may wish to read some recent press articles on this subject which detail the reasons for the global shortage. www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/technology-55704936
A quick internet search on “computer chip shortage” will give you lots of information.
No. It is likely that all automotive manufacturers will be impacted by this global shortage.
Stock of many components has been under pressure for some time, but we have been working with our suppliers to minimise the impact wherever possible.
Unfortunately, over recent weeks we have seen a rapid decline in the availability of this particular component.
Yes, there will still be a button to adjust mirrors remotely from the driver’s seat.
Yes, in the interim you can fold them in manually, as you would with a vehicle without the auto-folding feature.
Whilst we were aware of the overall component shortage, at the time, we weren’t aware of which technical functions would be affected and which vehicles would be impacted. We are informing you at the earliest opportunity.
This is a measurement of driving range in compliance with the new WLTP standard.
Worldwide Harmonised Light Vehicles Test Procedures (WLTP), gives both fuel consumption and electric vehicle driving range results that are much closer to real-life conditions compared to the previous NEDC protocol. The new test cycle was developed using real-driving data, gathered from around the world, providing more accurate driving ranges.
We offer E-tech connected services to help you manage your driving range. You can also manage your driving range remotely with MY Renault: wherever you are, you can visualise the charge level and driving range of your Renault E-tech vehicle, the current charging process or your recent charge history in real-time.
Your driving style also directly affects your Renault E-tech's electric driving range.
Here are a few simple tips to optimise your driving:
When you are behind the wheel of a Renault E-tech you can check your current energy in real-time using the fuel saver. The dashboard display shows the remaining driving range calculated based on the battery charge level and your average consumption.
There are several ways you can maximise your range.
The most important factor is your driving style. To increase the driving range, you should adopt eco-driving behaviour: think ahead, use the regenerative braking, drive smoothly...
Follow the advice on your R-LINK interactive tablet. At the end of each journey, it reviews your journey and gives you useful eco-driving advice to improve your driving range.
And you can turn on the ECO driving mode to improve the driving range even further. The power of the air conditioning or heating and the dynamic performance of your vehicle are reduced to maximize your range.
When you start your E-tech vehicle, you hear and feel nothing. The same goes when you are stuck in a traffic jam. The electric motor only uses energy when you’re driving. When stationary, the only energy consumption is from any auxiliaries that you are using, such as the heating or air conditioning.
So unlike in a petrol or diesel vehicle, you don’t need to worry about using fuel whilst stuck in traffic.
The impact using electronic devices has on the range on your Renault E-tech is very minimal, especially when compared to the impact from driving style, weather and topography.
Like all batteries, E-tech vehicles hold less charge in cold weather than at ambient temperature. However, the Renault ZOE has undergone extreme cold testing in Kiruna, Sweden, at -20°C, a temperature at which it worked perfectly normally. Very low temperatures can sometimes extend the charging time, affect the driving range from energy storage or increase consumption associated with the use of the heating.
The new lithium-ion batteries in Renault E-tech vehicles have no memory effect, so can be charged, even partially, at any time without their performance deteriorating prematurely. Drivers can top up their charge every day, or charge once a week – whatever works best with their lifestyle.
The battery's daily discharge rate is too low to be significant. It would take several weeks of inactivity to see a significant loss of charge.
Renault signed a partnership agreement with UMICORE, an international company recognised as one of the leaders in lithium-ion battery recycling. Damaged batteries or batteries that have reached the end of their life are collected, then sent to diagnosis centres where they are repurposed outside of the automotive sector, or fully recycled.
An electric car is easier and more economical to maintain than a fuel-powered car. For example, the oil in a fuel-powered car must be changed regularly to ensure correct lubrication and cooling of the engine block. Oil changes are a thing of the past with a Renault E-tech as an electric motor does not need lubricating. The same goes for your brake pads, disks and drums, which have a significantly longer life expectancy thanks to regenerative braking.
Yes, if you drive a E-tech vehicle, it's all included. 24/7 comprehensive breakdown assistance is included in the warranty.
By subscribing to connectivity, you can use connected applications that require a telecommunication network. You can access the connected applications via the R-LINK Store.
The battery warranty is included in the battery rental for new and second-hand cars. There is no specific warranty agreement for the traction battery.
