Renault, the French automaker, has over 120 of history. Louis Renault along with brothers Marcel and Fernand founded the “Société Renault Frères” in 1899. This company would later be known as Renault. The company sold its first vehicle, the Renault Voiturette 1CV, to friend of Louis’ father. In 1905, Renault saw its first big order. The “Société Automobile de Place » ordered AG1 cars to create a fleet of taxis. During WWI, Renault diversified in order to help the war effort. The company started making ammunition as well as tanks and other heavy machinery. During WWII, despite France being occupied, Renault refused to build tanks for the German, focusing on producing trucks instead.
Over the course of the 20th century, Renault produced many iconic vehicles. The famous Renault 5, a small hatchback, could be ordered in a powerful turbocharged variant. The Renault Espace, the first tried and true minivan, paved the way for other manufacturers in the family car segment. Yet another popular model is the Renault Clio which debuted in 1990 and is currently in its 5th generation.
Today, Renault proposes a large selection of vehicles ranging from small city cars to SUVs. With Elite you will have access to the Renault Clio, Espace and Twingo. Rent one today and find out what makes these French vehicles so iconic!
