A HYBRID version of the Renault Captur is being introduced giving the French car maker's compact SUV line up one of the largest powertrain choices available.

The Captur E-Tech will be on the road later in the year and comes in three trim levels priced from £24,500, £26,000 and £27,695.

Using the same powertrain as the E-Tech system used in the Renault Clio, the Captur has a 1.6-litre engine and two electric motors which start the vehicle in electric mode.

The technology is based on technology developed for Formula 1 racing and is similar to that used by the Alpine team in its F1 cars.

The Captur is now available as a petrol model, a plug-in hybrid and the new E-Tech hybrid.

Fuel economy for the E-Tech is said to be up 56.5mpg with the engine developing 145hp which delivers a 0 to 62mph acceleration time of 10.6 seconds and top speed of 106mph.

Emissions are rated at 114g/km and the system makes use of regenerative technology to boost battery performance when the vehicle brakes.

As with other Renault models with the E-Tech system the car has an automatic transmission the three drive modes to get optimum performance from the powertrain.

Safety and driver assistance features include fully automatic headlights, a seven-inch TFT driver display and a seven-inch portrait style touchscreen for Renault's EasyLink connectivity system.
