There are hybrid vehicles, then there is the Renault Arkana hybrid. Winner of the ‘Best Hybrid Car’ sector in the AutoTrader New Car Awards, 2022.
A hybrid vehicle is the perfect “middle ground” for those who are not yet ready to commit to life on battery power alone. The best of them mean you can cover short journeys solely on electric power whilst at the same time having the back-up of a conventional internal combustion engine (ICE) for those days that you need to travel that little bit further.
In such a vibrant sector of the market, it would take a very special hybrid to make the grade and that’s certainly what the Renault Arkana has done.
A perfect combination of Renault’s well-established experience with ICE Cars and its more recent electric expertise through models such as the Zoe, the Arkana is a true ‘best of both worlds’, combining modern SUV looks with commendable efficiency. One proud owner even commented: “The car looks beautiful with fabulous curves that make it look way ahead of its time”. Others praised the ease of access from the tall ride height, the comfort and, of course, the efficiency of the hybrid system and the ability to switch between electric and petrol power as required.
Many congratulations, Renault.
