"The 1.6 16v 105 Bioethanol engine is robust and reliable. It is equipped with specific components that permit its use with E85 superethanol fuel, including high temperature-resistant sodium-filled valves, optimised cylinder-head cooling and oil-jet cooled pistons. In addition, the materials employed for the fuel tank, fuel system and fuel pump have been upgraded to counter the risk of corrosion," Renault said in a release.
Interested consumers can already place an order for the new model at any Renault dealership across France.
