While the two companies refrained from sharing any further details on the SUVs, Renault Group CEO Luca de Meo confirmed to carandbike that they are evaluating alternative powertrain options for the new C-segment SUVs, aside from petrol engines, which are likely to be the only option available at launch. 


During the presentation, the companies revealed that they are working on CNG as well as ethanol powertrains for future products, but it remains to be seen if those options are introduced with the C-segment SUVs.
