Renault Group markets the Renault and Dacia passenger car and light commercial vehicle (LCV) brands in Ireland and also has its own bank – Renault Bank – which lends to personal and business customers.
The Renault brand is synonymous with design and style and the development of awarding winning fuel-efficient engines, as well as being a leader in electric vehicles.
Most recently the brand launched six new models – including the All-New Renault Mégane Hatch, Mégane Grand Coupé saloon and Mégane Sport Tourer estate.
One of the most iconic models, the Renault Scénic, was stylishly reinvented and launched in Ireland in January 2017 along with the Renault Grand Scénic 7 seater. Renault’s full car range includes the Kadjar, Captur, Clio, Twingo and Twizy.
Dacia the shockingly affordable brand, is celebrating five years launched in Ireland this year and has a full range of popular vehicles including Duster, Sandero, Sandero Stepway, Logan MCV and Duster Commericial.
Renault’s LCV range is one of the best-selling in Ireland, with the award winning Renault Trafic, Master and Kangoo.
The electric vehicle range will be further enhanced later this month with the launch of the New ZOE Z.E 40 which is equipped with a new battery giving it the largest range of any mainstream electric vehicle – 400 Km (NEDC), which Renault estimates as 300KM of range in real-world driving. Renault has been Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle brand since 2010 and the Renault ZOE is Europe’s best-selling electric vehicle.
Renault currently sponsors Ireland’s biggest chat show The Late Late Show and the award winning Ian Dempsey Breakfast Show on Today FM and has a number of Irish ambassadors driving Renault and Dacia including The Happy Pear, Ian Dempsey, Lorraine Keane, francophile Darren Kennedy, Fiona Coghlan, Alan Brogan, Dessie Dolan, and Rosemary Smith.
Patrick Magee, Country Operations Manager, Renault Group Ireland: “We are delighted to become a patron of the France Ireland Chamber of Commerce, and although a French brand, we have a very big Irish culture at our HQ in Dundrum where we have over 60 employees including our bank, Renault Bank.
