Renault reports highest fleet growth figures for 2010
The brand has reported a cumulative fleet car share of almost 4.8% for 2010, an increase of 2.2 points. Strong sellers included the seven-seat Grand Scenic.
And for the LCV market, Renault succeeded in driving up its cumulative share to almost 7.5%, equating to a gain of close to 2.5 points versus 2009. It also consolidated its position as Europe's best-selling van manufacturer for the 13th consecutive year, with a market share of 15.9%.
As well as attributing its success to its product, Renault said that the launch of the Renault Business brand last year had played a key role.
The Renault Business Promise is a commitment to fleet customers, designed to ensure the very best customer service, based on mobility, transparent pricing, minimal downtime, first class service and a specialist dealer network
During the year, Renault's network of one-stop business shops, known as Renault Pro+ sites grew to 24 across the country, and the manufacturer also developed Renault iCare, a pence-per-mile service, maintenance and repair system managed via telematics.
Darren Payne, Renault UK's director of fleet and commercial vehicle operations said: 'These results prove that Renault Business is once again a strong and credible contender in the fleet market, thanks to a competitive model line-up and an industry-leading after-sales experience that customers can expect due to the Renault Business Promise.
'What's more, we will strengthen our position still further in 2011 with the introduction of more fleet-appealing low CO2 models in the first half and of course, the build-up to the launch of our first electric vehicle, Kangoo Van ZE.'
