Renault Megane E-Tech is an all-electric vehicle. It is also an important car for the French automaker that is equipping with many new technologies which are not found in other Renault products.
Renault and OpenR Link Interface
Renault is very proud of its OpenR Link Interface. That is part of the electric crossover. This consists of two large screens which are designing to work in a similar way to a smartphone.
Also, the first screen is a 12.3-inch digital instrumental cluster that is connecting to a 12-inch.
Made by Continental, Renault’s OpenR display features an aluminosilicate-based Gorilla-type glass. It is tempering and very resistant to shocks. Moreover, it is also saying to be scratch-proof. Therefore, it should last for a good 15 years. In fact, the TFT displays also have a remarkable 267 PPI (pixels per inch), which is slightly more than the 264 PPI that is founding in the Retina display of the latest-generation iPad.
Like some other automakers, Renault has opted not to extend the dashboard over the gauges. Those to shield them from the sun, noting that the screen has an anti-reflective coating. Moreover, it does feature the same micro-blinds technology. It has a privacy screen on some computers. Therefore, the OpenR’s panels also do adjust their brightness depending on outdoor light levels.
These screens do run on the Android operating system. They do offer both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. Also, the use of the Android OS. This also does mean it does that Google Maps is natively installing. Thus powering the displays is the latest Snapdragon Automotive Cockpit from Qualcomm. It does make the screen seven times smoother than Renault’s outgoing system.
In fact, LG Electronics was actually calling upon to ensure the two screens do work seamlessly together.
To open next month is to order books for the new Renault Megane E-Tech. Thereby it will land in European dealerships in March.
