Geneva 2013: 5 things not to miss on the Renault stand
The 83rd Geneva Motor Show (#SIAG) opened its doors to the general public today. For the happy few who will be able to visit the show and the Renault stand (in Hall 4, Palexpo) this year, here are the 5 things you don’t want to miss on our colourful stand! Easy to spot: just look for our 2 “bumps” full of cars and round colourful lights. And for those who won’t be able to make the trip this year, this blog post will still keep you up to date on the latest arrivals at Renault.
A bump full of Renault Captur, surrounded by a few Renault Clio (revealed last year in Paris), including New Clio R.S. 200 EDC.
The star of the Renault stand this year is this guy! New urban crossover Captur, making its debut in Geneva in a series of different hues & colour combos. It will go on sale in the weeks to come first in France then in other countries.
New Kangoo Z.E.
The Z.E. (zero emission) zone features ZOE, Twizy (including the Twizy showcar by Cathy & David Guetta) and newly announced Kangoo Z.E., boasting new Renault front-end identity (seen on New Clio).
The Scénic family with Scénic Xmod, New Scénic and New Grand Scénic
The Scénic family is growing! Don’t miss our new Scénic Xmod (MPV in crossover mode), and New Scénic and New Grand Scénic (with new front-end identity).
Maybe you weren’t aware of it, but Renault isn’t only a car manufacturer. It’s also a key motorist player in Formula 1, with no less than 11 world champion titles (as a constructor & motorist). In Geneva, a lot of new engines, derived from Formula 1, are featured on our stand, like Captur’s new engines and Clio R.S.’ Even the R.S.27 is making an appearance. It will equip our 4 partner teams starting this week-end for the opening of the 2013 F1 season.
R-Link, the multimedia tablet
A zone dedicated to R-Link, the connected multimedia tablet, is available on the stand. Try out its navigation system and different apps, before seeing it in your Clio, ZOE and soon Captur and Scénic.
What you might have missed on the Renault stand
We had the chance to get some special guests’ visit this year in Geneva.
Jérôme d'Ambrosio, Lotus F1 Team reserve pilot, who had the opportunity to check out newly revealed Captur.
Arnaud Montebourg, France's industry minister, got a tour of the Renault with Head of Renault Design, Laurens van den Acker and Renault CEO, Carlos Ghosn. He’s pictured sitting in New Renault car Captur.
Last but not least, a promising young F1 driver Giedo van der Garde (Caterham F1 Team), had time to check out Clio R.S. & other Renault cars with fellow Dutch man Laurens van den Acker, Head of Renault Design.
