“The new Renault Austral has entered the final stages of its development,” said Renault, quoted from the Hindustan Times, Tuesday (11/1/2022).
Renault said the new Austral would carry out a series of tests called ‘Confirmation Runs’, in which about 100 vehicles would cover a distance of about two million kilometers. This SUV will come with several choices of powertrains or car drive systems.
Austral will have a gasoline-only hybrid line-up, a new generation E-Tech hybrid option, a 1.3 TCE unit with a 12V mild-hybrid solution, and for the first time in the company’s lineup, a 1.2 TCE unit with a 48V mild-hybrid technology powertrain.
The engine range will make this SUV a more performance-oriented car and will help in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, Renault said.
As Austral will feature the new CMF-CD3 platform, testing will help the team to agree on the necessary adjustments along with adjustments in the driver assistance system, silencer and suspension system.
Renault Austral will cover France, Spain, Germany, and Romania to confirm the results of the previous inspection. The company says that around 900 drivers will cover 6,000,000 km on open roads while the remaining 14,000,000 km will be covered on tracks.
Renault said, every time it will launch a new model, the product will be tested intensively to ensure quality and reliability.
Renault has previously mentioned that this new SUV is primarily for the European market. The company has yet to announce the unveiling and launch date of the Austral SUV.
