Renault, over a century of expertise in light commercial vehicles

Tags: LCV

For more than a century, Renault has been developing, manufacturing and selling Light Commercial Vehicles to meet the needs of demanding business customers around the world. These iconic LCVs often left a lasting mark on their times. Groupe Renault’s global LCV sales have increased by 40% since 2011, reaching a new historic record of 434,000 units in 2016.

Today, Renault is Europe’s leading electric LCV player. In 2015, Renault launched Renault Pro+, an expert brand set up to further expand its range of dedicated products, services and solutions tailored to business users.

Groupe Renault’s ambition is to increase LCV sales by more than 40% by the end of our new strategic plan “Drive the Future”. We also aim to double our market coverage and to remain the leader in electric LCVs by electrifying all our vans. With Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, the objective is to become the leading global player in LCVs, with over 2.5 million units sold by the end of the plan.”
