Renault Ireland celebrate big performance in July

Thursday, 22nd August, 2019 8:49am

Renault Group Ireland enjoyed a strong start to the busy 192 registration period, finishing number one in the Light Commercial Vehicle market, and with a 10.2 per cent combined share of the new car and van markets for July.

Renault was also the clear winner in the LCV market in July coming in first position with an impressive 20.4 per cent market share, up 5.8 per cent on the same time last year, maintaining third position year-to-date.

Master, Trafic and Kangoo took the top spots in the large, medium and small van markets respectively. Kangoo finished the month as the number one van in Ireland while Master maintains its leadership position in the large van segment year-to-date.

The electric vehicle market continued to grow in July to three per cent share of the market. The electric Renault Zoe, Ireland’s most affordable electric vehicle, had its strongest ever month, maintaining third position in the segment with 12.8 per cent share, up seven per cent versus last July — and that’s with an all-new Zoe coming very soon. The electric Kangoo Z.E. was Ireland’s best-selling electric van last month.

The group achieved 8.1 per cent share of the passenger car market in July, with Dacia growing market share to 2.8 per cent.

Renault Group continued its leadership of the small car segment last month, with Clio taking 9.4 per cent share year-to-date, and with Zoe, Dacia Sandero and Dacia Logan MCV sales combined giving a share of 17 per cent year-to-date.

The ever-popular Renault Captur gave a strong performance in July, maintaining number two position on the podium in its class, while Renault Kadjar and Dacia Duster brought Renault Group to second position in the medium-sized SUV class with 11.1 per cent share in July. Renault Scénic is still the best selling compact MPV in Ireland, with a market share of 21.8 per cent year-to-date.

July saw over €34 million lent to Renault and Dacia customers through Renault Bank, and €170 million so far this year. In fact, Renault Bank financed five per cent of all new cars and vans registered in Ireland in July.

Renault’s network of 28 dealerships around the country has unmissable offers for August on new cars and vans.

Renault customers can avail of 3.9 per cent APR on the passenger car range, as well as 3.9 per cent APR, five years’ warranty, five years’ roadside assistance, and further local dealer offers on vans.

Shockingly affordable Dacia is offering customers zero deposit and 4.9 per cent APR for August. These offers are available through Renault Bank, offering customers lower interest rates and further savings versus high street commercial banks.

Patrick Magee, Country Operations Director, Renault Ireland said: “We’re delighted to have had such a fantastic and positive performance for the start of 192. Our award-winning van range was the number one choice for Irish businesses, families are continuing to choose the versatile Kadjar and the stylish Captur remains ever popular.

“Renault is a pioneer and leader of the electric vehicle market in Europe and it’s great to see our range of electric vehicles on the up again last month. In these uncertain times with Brexit, we provide stability for our customers with low interest rates from Renault Bank reducing the cost of owning a vehicle. We’re looking forward to continued success with the group as we move further into 192.”
