Renault presented the electric car Mégane E-Tech at the Munich International Motor Show. Although the specs look very good. But the safety function is the most urgent aspect of this electric car.

The firefighter job is the result of more than ten years of partnership between the French group and the French firefighters.

The electric vehicle has a special channel for the rescue team to provide batteries. The company says it will allow rescuers to put out the battery fire within five minutes. In contrast, most electric car batteries take one to three hours to ignite.

There is also a switch under the back seat that the rescue team can use to disconnect the battery. The company also displayed a QR code on the windshield.

The idea is that the rescue team can scan the code to learn more about the chassis of the car. They know the location of the batteries and airbags, as well as information about where they can be kept safely in the vehicle.

The company says this information can help first responders save up to 15 minutes while rescuing accident victims, thus saving lives.

No two electric cars are built alike, and first responders don't necessarily know how complex each car is.

So it makes sense to use a QR code to provide information about the structure of the Megane E-Tech Electric. The same goes for easy access to batteries to put out fires more quickly.

The latest version of the Mégane series is based on Renault's CMF-EV platform. As for the chassis structure, the designer's inspiration came from the company's Morphoz concept that was introduced last year.

There are two drive options, one is the base model with 130 hp and the other is the more advanced model with 215 hp.

You can also choose between two batteries. The 40 kW option has a range of 300 km and with a 60 kW range you can save up to 470 km on a single charge.

And when the car is connected to a 130W fast charging station, you can add up to 300 km of range in just 30 minutes of charging.

The OpenR infotainment system is based on the Android Automotive OS operating system, so you can access Google apps and its voice assistants.

Renault said the system can help find charging stations on long trips that will reduce travel time.
